Sharing is Caring - Books: "Fortunate Sum" by M. Ullrich

Fortunate SumFortunate Sum by M. Ullrich
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Note: I received this ARC from Bold Strokes Books via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Fortunate Sum by M. Ullrich was a very, very pleasant surprise. Debut novel from a first-time published author in this genre provided some trepidation when I first set out to reading this novel. And though it had some slight needs for further development (in my opinion), those tiny flaws did not dissuade from my enjoyment of this from beginning to end.

Pleasantly surprised

I was captured pretty quickly into this story (after a few duds and attempts to read new books before acquiring this one, where the other did not go nearly as well), and bonded with the characters. I will admit that I didn't become attached to the two main characters as much as I have in other novels of the same genre, but spending some time with Catherine Carter and Imogene Harris did not disappoint in the least.

Following Catherine and Imogene as they stumble into a chance at love was an epic ride for the reader, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Again, despite some minor things that caused me to raise an eyebrow at the author's choice for the turn of the story, or the reaction of one character to another, I felt fulfilled in the end product, and would read M. Ullrich again to see what other stories she has up her sleeve to share with the world.

I look forward to reading more by this debut author, and can comfortably give this novel 4.5 stars, rounding up to 5.
