ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Palmer Girl
Series: The Historic Hotels Collection #2
Author: Dawn Klinge
Release Date: September 29, 2020
Genre: Historical Romance
When insurance tycoon, Cornelius Nordeman, is recruited to work for the Exposition Corporation, the New Yorker brings his family to live at the Palmer House Hotel, far away from any reminders of a recent tragedy. He’s hopeful this move will offer respite from his family’s grief.
Elizabeth Nordeman, his daughter, has something to prove, which leads her to seek work as a florist at Marshall Field’s, Chicago’s finest department store.
John Lewis knows something is different and intriguing about the new florist he hired. When his boss, Marshall Field, informs him that Elizabeth is the Nordeman heiress, his job suddenly becomes more complicated–especially when he finds himself falling for her.
On the eve of the Columbian Exposition of 1893, Chicago prepares to prove that it’s a first-class city, and the brightest minds from around the country will plan the most spectacular fair the world has seen.
The World’s Fair will bring change and innovation into a society bound tightly by class and tradition. Elizabeth’s heart longs to push against those boundaries, so what’s holding her back?
It was too late to avoid being spotted. The last space on Elizabeth Nordeman’s dance card was about to be filled. Taking one last discreet sip from her glass, she set it on the passing silver tray of a uniformed waiter. Then she turned and smiled politely at the elegant woman and the young man approaching her. They’d made a beeline toward her place at the base of the grand curving staircase where she’d paused to catch her breath after the last quadrille. She’d been hoping to make an early exit and return to her family’s apartment upstairs without anyone noticing.
Drawing near was Bertha Palmer, their hostess, and judging by the determined look on her face, her motives were clear. Every high society woman of Chicago, minus the ones with marriageable daughters of their own, seemed united in her mother’s cause, which was to introduce Elizabeth to every eligible bachelor of high social standing in the city.
