Bees in the Butterfly Garden by Maureen Lang

About the Book:

Raised in an exclusive boarding school among Fifth Avenue’s finest, Meg Davenport has all she’s ever needed . . . but none of the things she’s wanted most, like family, or dreams of a future that includes anything other than finding a suitable match. So when her distant father dies, she seizes the chance to throw etiquette aside and do as she pleases. Especially when she learns that John Davenport wasn’t the wealthy businessman she thought, but one of the Gilded Age’s most talented thieves.

Poised to lead those loyal to Meg’s father, Ian Maguire knows the last thing his mentor would have wanted is for his beloved daughter to follow in his footsteps. Yet Meg is determined, and her connections to one of New York’s wealthiest families could help Ian pull off his biggest heist yet. But are they both in over their heads? And in trying to gain everything, will they end up losing it all?

My Review: 

4.5 Stars

What a fun book this was to read! I loved every page of it. Maureen Lang wrote a great book filled with tension, danger, romance, faith, friendship and suspense. Bees in the Butterfly Garden is book 1 in Marueen's new Gilded Legacy series and I am so excited to see what will come next. I also want to note that the cover for this book is beautiful. I think it would make anyone want to buy the book with out reading the back cover. 

In this book, I really loved all the characters and there were so many different types of people that it made the book very fun and interesting to read. It is hard to say much about the different characters without giving the story away, so I won't but I will say that anyone who loves historical romance will want to read this book. This was a book that was well worth taking the time to read, great job Maureen on this excellent book.
