Book Description

Aug. 1 2010
When Susannah McKittrick leaves Nantucket for the boomtown of Seattle, she is hardly looking to strike it rich; she is headed west to care for a newborn left motherless after Susannah's cousin died. Although the rigorous trip depletes all of her savings, Susannah is certain she is doing the right thing. She is less sure when she meets the infant's father, wealthy businessman Aubrey Fairgrieve -- who seems embittered toward love and marriage, and indifferent toward the precious baby Susannah is so eager to care for.

Gradually, Susannah discovers that Aubrey's marriage to her cousin was far from perfect -- and she comes to see the brusque but handsome man in a new light. But when Aubrey makes her a most practical offer, it is a far cry from the heartfelt proposal Susannah desires. If he truly wants to win her hand, he will have to learn to trust once more -- and sweep her away with the bold passion of a man in love.

Product Description

From Booklist

In her latest sensual romance, the ever-popular Miller tells a gothic story about a woman, Susannah, who travels from Nantucket to the wilds of Seattle in 1906 to care for her deceased friend Julia's baby. She has never met her friend's husband, Aubrey, but takes her chances, in spite of Julia's last letters, which intimated a troubled marriage, and moves into his mansion. She soon learns that he believes Julia had lovers and that the child isn't his. To complicate matters even more, Julia led everyone to believe that she was involved with Ethan, Aubrey's brother. As Susannah tries to heal the rift between brothers, Aubrey becomes jealous of all the men pursuing Susannah (there's a shortage of decent women) and tries to court her himself even though he swore never to marry again. Miller is in top form in this wonderful tale of a former ugly duckling becoming a swan by virtue of kindness. Patty Engelmann

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done Oct. 3 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1906, with no ties in Nantucket, Susannah McKittrick easily dropped everything to head to Seattle when the letter arrived informing her that her friend Julia died. Susannah and Julia grew up together at the St. Mary's Orphanage where they became blood sisters. Susannah vowed to watch over Julia's newborn if something ever happened to her best friend. Julia died from a fever just after childbirth.

Four months later, Susannah enters the home of Julia's husband, wealthy businessman Aubrey Fairgrieve. She expects to hate the man that her blood sister grew to loathe. Instead Susannah finds she is attracted to him. Surprisingly Aubrey allows her to stay to care for his daughter. Quickly Susannah brings order out of chaos while she falls in love with her charge and her host. However, Aubrey knew a different Julia than Susannah's childhood friend and expects his guest to show her true colors if he allows a relationship to form.

COURTING SUSANNAH makes the first decade of the twentieth century in Seattle alive and fresh and not locating it in San Francisco during the major earthquake. The story line is enjoyable although one must wonder why the suspicious, once burned Aubrey allowed his deceased wife's best friend to stay. Susannah is a warm, strong person and the support cast acts as a catalyst between her and Aubrey. Flashbacks to Julia paint a picture of a spoiled pants chaser, which Susannah should have understood from knowing her blood sister. Still, Linda Lael Miller provides her audience with a wonderful look at an Americana romance.

Susannah and Julia grew up together St. Mary's Orphanage. They became blood sisters. The rigorous trip depletes all for her saving and the infant's father, wealthy businessman Aubrey Fairgrieve is indifferent toward the precious baby Susannah is so eager to care for. Susannah and Aubrey get together to take care of the baby. Sometimes they get into discussions because Aubrey does not know how to care of the baby. Time passes and Susannah discovers that Aubrey's marriage to her sister was far from perfect and she comes to see the brusque but handsome man in a new light. Iliked this book beacuse of the way Susannah accepts Aubrey. They work together. Their plan was to have a good life with the baby. This os one of Linda Lael Miller best book. This book is a romance novel. You should read it.

I am a long-time Linda Lael Miller fan. Absolutely loved the Corbin series and have re-read these books numerous times.
I could glimpse some of the magic in this book but there was something missing. You didn't really connect with the characters as you didn't get a real good insight into their emotions or inner thoughts. It was hard to empathize with the main characters because you didn't get a full picture of what experiences shaped them like in Ms. Miller's other books. For example, in "Banner O'Brien" Banner was divorced and struggled to become a doctor and Adam Corbin was the eldest brother, driven doctor hiding a secret from his family. Overall, disappointed that the book never fully evolved for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 chili peppers! March 22 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I always love the poetry of Ms. Miller's books. The characters are so well-drawn, and the chemistry between Aubrey and Susannah is enticing. Throughout this story, though, I feel the external conflict never really reached it's potential. Too many things were heaped on to a particular secondary character, and the reasoning behind why Julia, the dead wife, did what she did was weak. The ending seemed rushed. But, the pull between Aubrey and Susannah is enough for me to give this one a high reccomendation, despite the earler mentioned points.
