# A Woman of Fortune # book review

Book Review: A Woman of Fortune

Texas socialite Claire Massey is living the dream. Her world is filled with designer clothes, luxury cars, and stunning homes. But her Neiman-Marcus lifestyle comes crashing down when her charming cattle broker husband is arrested for fraud. Suddenly, she finds herself facing attorneys, a media frenzy, and a trail of broken hearts. Betrayed and humiliated, Claire must start over against incredible odds to save her family–and discover a life worth living.

Poignant and emotionally gripping, A Woman of Fortune reveals the many ways we deceive ourselves and how resilience of the heart is essential to authentic living. Drawing on her experiences as a legal investigator, author Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers emotionally gripping plots and authentic characters. Readers will love Claire’s unbending determination as she strives to keep her family from falling apart and learns to embrace the kind of fortune that lasts.

I quite literally just closed the back cover on this book and have to say that I really enjoyed it. I've been doing so much review work in the romance category lately, that I wasn't sure how I'd enjoy something that wasn't in that area. Luckily for me, I chose the right book to find out. This is a story of love, family, betrayel and survival. The characters are real and though I've never had their kind of lifestyle, relateable. My only complaint, if I had to find one, would be the front cover. I find it to be misleading and more suited for a romance novel than the wonderful book that I just finished reading.
