Bite-sized Book Review: ‘The fortune hunter’
Known for her bestselling novel, “The American Heiress,” Daisy Goodwin is back at it again. “The Fortune Hunter” is a fantastically written story about a man named Captain Middleton, or Bay as he is called, and his relationship with two beautiful women: the Austrian Empress, Sisi, and the heiress to a massive fortune, Charlotte Baird. While I am not a fan of love triangles, the one depicted in this piece of historical fiction is beautifully portrayed. The problems are realistic, not just there to create conflict, and the language is easy to understand despite the story taking place in the late 1800s. “The Fortune Hunter” is an easy read that is impossible to put down and leaves you wanting more.
