Thirty suitors, six months of courting . . .
would it be enough time for her to fall in love?

Willow Dupré never thought she would have to marry, but with her father's unexpected retirement from running the prosperous Dupré sugar refinery, she is forced into a different future.

"Delightfully original! Set during the glittering Gilded Age, My Dear Miss Dupré is a captivating story that will charm readers from the first page until the last. Grace Hitchcock is a writer to watch!"--JEN TURANO, USA Today Bestselling Author

"Sparkling with vivacious energy, this romance launches Hitchcock's American Royalty series. . . . Fans of the TV's The Bachelorette will adore this historical spin on competitive courtship that features all of the glitz, glamour, and drama that the Gilded Age brought to New York City's elite."--Booklist

"To the modern reader, the plot of this book is reminiscent of the popular reality show, The Bachelorette. In what is a unique take, author Grace Hitchcock has combined the modern with the old fashioned by setting her book at the height of America's Gilded Age. . . .Overall, the book is amusing and entertaining, a relatively quick read. The characters are interesting and possess great depth."--Historical Novels Review
