Diamond in the Rough by Jen Turano is the second book in her American Heiresses series. Poppy Garrison accepts financial help from her grandmother for her family. In exchange Poppy must join her for the New York social Season. Trying to make Poppy into the crème of society is a challenge. There is trouble everywhere that she goes. Reginald Blackburn, second son of the Duke of Sutherland came to New York to help his cousin find an American heiress to marry. Because of his very British manners, Poppy’s grandmother hires him to teach Poppy etiquette. Will Reginald be able to turn Poppy into a Diamond of the First Water or is she too much of a Diamond in the Rough? This book is hilarious! I caught myself laughing out loud several times. Earning some strange looks from my husband! I loved the way Poppy never backed down from a fight but stood for what she thought was right. She wasn’t afraid of what people said about her. She stayed true to herself. Some of the situations that she found herself in were hilarious but she made the best of the situation and kept on going. We could learn a lesson from her. Don’t let the situation overcome you; overcome the situation!
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
