The Invention of Sarah Cummings by Olivia Newport

The Invention of Sarah Cummings (Avenue of Dreams Series #3)The Invention of Sarah Cummings by Olivia Newport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was granted this book to read and review from Revell Via Net Galley.

I haven't read the previous books, and I so wish I had.

I dived into this one. It made a change in my reading habits, its been years since I read an historical read such as this and Sarah Cummings made an impression on me, one sassy lady which would have been quite apt in our century too!

The grass sometimes is not always greener on the other side, now Sarah has a choice on her hands.

I found this book like a breath of fresh air to me amongst some of the books I have been reading which has been equally as good in their own right, but this one just made that little change in its genre.

I would recommend you read the books prior to this though to tie everything in.


Sarah Cummings has one goal in life--to break into Chicago's high society. Desperate to stop serving dinner and to start eating at society tables, Sarah alters cast-off gowns from the wealthy Banning women to create lustrous, flattering dresses of her own. On a whim at a chance meeting, she presents herself as Serena Cuthbert, weaving a fictitious past to go with her fictitious name. But as she gets closer to Simon Tewell, the director of St. Andrew's Orphanage, Sarah finds that she must choose between the life she has and the life she dreams of. Will she sacrifice love to continue her pretense? Or can Simon show her that sometimes you don't have to pretend for dreams to come true? 
Olivia Newport brings us back to Prairie Avenue to explore the place where class, social expectations, and romance come together. Readers will enjoy following the intrepid Sarah as she searches for true love in a world of illusions
