book review for Maid to Match

Deeanne Gist is one of my favorite authors. Her books are always so easy to read and very enjoyable! Her latest book didn't disappoint. Maid to Match is the story of Tillie Reese, a head parlor maid for the newly married Vanderbilts in 1898. She has been preparing her entire life to be a lady's maid and is so close to her goal. Until she meets Mack Danver. Tillie has been put in charge of training Mack for service before a large party comes to visit, and everything she has been preparing for suddenly seems to be in jeopardy. She's trying hard to stay on top of her responsibilities, follow God's call for ministering to those less fortunate, and not fall in love. It was a fun adventure from beginning to end, as always! Full of rich history, romance and wonderful writing. There did seem to be less of a faith theme in this book than some of her others, yet it was still a very clean and tasteful story. This will be on my bookshelf for awhile!

I received this book as part of the Bethany House blogger book review program in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
