Diamond in the Rough | Book Review


When Miss Poppy Garrison accepts her grandmother's offer of financial help for her family in exchange for Poppy joining the New York social season, she quickly realizes she is far less equipped to mingle with the New York Four Hundred than even she knew. As she becomes embroiled in one hilarious fiasco after another, becoming the diamond of the first water her grandmother longs her to be looks more impossible by the day.

Reginald Blackburn, second son of a duke, is in New York to help his cousin find an American heiress who can help save his family's estate. But when his very proper British manners lead Poppy's grandmother to request he teach etiquette to Poppy, he quickly finds himself in for much more than he bargained for.

And while they couldn't be more opposite, Reginald and Poppy just might find they have more to teach each other than they ever could have expected.

Jen Turano’s American Heiresses series continues with great fun in Diamond in the Rough. To help her family, Poppy Garrison agrees to participate in the New York social season—but having grown up on a horse farm, she is quite unprepared for what that entails, of course. Enter Reginald Blackburn, second son of a duke. He agrees to help Poppy, but she might just prove to be more than he can handle.

Opposites in so many ways, Poppy and Reginald make a delightful pair. As is typical of a Turano novel, they encounter one silly situation after another, and complement each other well through it all. I so enjoyed my time with them; seeing them learn, grow, and fall in love made it easy to do. If you love historical romance, I’m sure you will enjoy it just as much.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
