About the Book
"1886, New York City: Charlotte Gleason, a rich heiress from England, escapes a family crisis by traveling to America in order to marry the even wealthier Conrad Tremaine.
She soon decides that an arranged marriage is not for her and persuades her maid, Dora, to take her place. She wants a chance at "real life," even if it means giving up financial security. For Charlotte, it's a risk she's willing to take. What begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl wanting adventure becomes a test of survival amid poverty beyond Charlotte's blackest nightmares.
As for Dora, it's the chance of a lifetime. She lives a fairy tale complete with gowns, jewels, and lavish mansions--yet is tormented by guilt from the possibility of discovery and the presence of another love that will not die. Is this what her heart truly longs for?
Will their masquerade be discovered? Will one of them have second thoughts? There is no guarantee the switch will work. It's a risk. It's the chance of a lifetime."
Masquerade is a book of adventure and romance filled with risk and chances for two girls who will pull off a con of a lifetime. They pull the old switcharoo but who doesn't hate arranged marriages. The question is will they be caught? I am not going to ruin the book for you you will have to read it yourself. If you like adventure this is the book for you. This book will keep you reading!
Nancy Moser really caught the drama in this book and the characters kept my interest peeked. Les face it nothing in life comes easy! This is almost like a fairy tale with a touch of deception.
Overall I loved Masquerade and I would recommend this book to my friends and family. This is a wonderful book filled with adventure, love, and drama.
