Ere are mistresses scandals and gentlemen of ruthless ambition And there is Connor O'Casey an entirely new kind of New Yorker A self made millionaire of Irish stock Connor wants than riches He wants to create a legacy in the form of a luxury Madison Avenue hotel and he wants Francesca by his side as he does it In a uest that will take her from impeccable Manhattan salons to the wild Canadian Rockies Francesca must choose not only between two vastly different men but between convention and her own emerging self relianceRules Of DecorumA gentleman should not be presented to a lady without her permission being previously asked and granted This formality is not necessary between men alone; but still you should not present. A free digital copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewDecorum follows wealthy New York socialite Francesca Lund and new money Irish immigrant Connor O Casey as they navigate the difficult waters of late 19th century society Against this backdrop a relationship between Francesca and Connor blooms but this is compromised by their different circumstances and society s high expectationsFrom the get go Decorum reminded me of Edith Wharton s The Age of Innocence Both novels have similar aspects mainly a relationship complicated by the rules and conventions of the public I liked how Christopherson played with this obstacle showing Francesca and Connor not as rebels perfectly willing to go against the tide but rather as society people who cared for both their happiness and their reputationsThe character of Connor O Casey was definitely the best thing about Decorum He was a paradox of ualities ruthless but caring about the people close to him gruff but endearing strong yet vulnerable at the same time I highly enjoyed reading the chapters told from his perspectiveMy two main issues with Decorum was the plot and Francesca Lund The plot was very linear with unsurprising and expected twists There were no hard to guess story lines and no shocking turn of events Unlike The Age of Innocence whose outcome I could never have predicted it was pretty obvious in Decorum who the enemy was and who would end up with whom To be honest this straightforward plot made for dull readingFrancesca Lund was the very thing that irked me in Decorum She was too perfect very intelligent very nice very beautiful that she was a mere one dimensional character A hundred percent Mary Sue to be honest Her backstory was interesting but this was never explored to its fullest potential Basically she was a pious less hopelessly romantic version of Bella Swan In A Nutshell Decorum was an okay read but its issues were too many to overlook Honestly it was uite tedious and I cannot laud praises of it despite the rich historical detail and the interesting character of Connor O Casey Sadly I also cannot recommend this to everyone since its slow pacing and dull plot would probably compel most readers to throw it across the room in frustration
