“But it’s the love story of the century, haven’t you heard?” I said. “The King who gave up his throne for the woman he loves.” ~ Beatriz Williams, The Golden Hour.
Lulu finds herself with a plum assignment reporting on the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor while he serves as Governor of the Bahamas. Before long Lulu finds herself entangled in the intrigue and politics that is the center of Island life. Lulu is also drawn to a mysterious gentleman, one she can’t help but fall in love with.
I could not tear myself away from this novel, I read all 462 pages in just two days. I love the setting of the Bahamas, the intrigue of possibility of war time conspiracy from a reported loyal member of the Royal Family. Add in a forbidden love story and a horrific murder and its resulting trial, how could anyone walk away unsatisfied after reading this novel.
