A Waltz at Midnight by Crista McHugh

Susanna Parkwell was a southern belle before the war. Now though, shes a hired maid at a women's college in New York. Charlotte is one of the young ladies attending the college, but when her parents force her to write Theodore Blakely in order to insure a marriage she turns to Susanna. Now Susanna must write this man acting as Charlotte, but what no one counted on was that Theodore and Susanna would fall in love through thier letters. So when her parents decide that Theodore will start courting Charlotte, she comes up with a plan to ensure that Susanna and Teddy live happily ever after.

This story takes place after the Civil War in New York. It was written like reading letters back and forth between two lovers with occasional dialouge. Although it was a very short story it is some what like a new Cinderella story. There is deciet, lies, love, and heartache. It was well written and full of emotion and very sweet to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy a short sweet love story.

I recieved this digital copy from NetGalley.
