Synopsis:

Will Geneviève open her heart to a love she never imagined?

Washington State 1894

Geneviève Marseille, a French socialite, has only one purpose in coming to Kamola—stopping her brother from digging up the past. She has reluctantly journeyed alone to the quaint college town in central Washington State. Kamola is so different from her beloved Paris that she is tempted to abort her mission, but the kindness of a handsome deputy tempers her desire to flee.

Deputy Montana has lived a simple life. But when a fancy French lady steps off the train and into his arms, his modest existence might not be enough anymore. Even though he’s warned he can have no future with Miss Marseille because her grandparents would never accept him, he is drawn to her at every turn. Can he make himself worthy of her?

Mystery surrounds Aunt Henny. She is aunt to all but related to no one in Kamola. When a nemesis from her past arrives, she must decide whether to flee as she’d done all those years ago or stand her ground in the town she’s made her home and risk going to jail.

When secrets come out, will the lives of Geneviève, Montana, and Aunt Henny ever be the same?

Geneviève was a sweet, innocent young woman who has always done what her grand-mère expected – until she got the courage to run away to stop her brother from making a huge mistake! The courage she showed by traveling across the country alone was admirable. I enjoyed watching her blossom as she learned that following society’s expectations wasn’t always the right choice and learned to stand on her own two feet.

Montana, one of the deputies in the small Central Washington town of Kamola, was quite chivalrous, even if he didn’t realize it. It was a lot of fun to watch him find opportunities to serve Geneviève.

The Débutante’s Secret had elements of mystery, romance, and intrigue. I figured out the secret fairly early on – though I’m not sure if this was the author’s intent. This did not take away from my enjoyment of the story; it simply had me waiting for the characters to catch up with what I already knew.

Readers who enjoy historical fiction with a Western flair will enjoy The Débutante’s Secret and the other stories of The Quilting Circle series.
