    1. Flirtation Walk may not usurp my favorite spot of Siri Mitchell’s books, but it is definitely a favorite of the year so far. What an utterly fun and charming story! Siri’s books are always light and fun, but also impart a real truth to the reader. Combine that with winning characters and a unique historical setting, and I'm hooked.Lucinda Pennyworth is a bit of a contradiction. She wants to be respectable and normal, but her years of helping her father with his cons on unsuspecting victims h [...]

    2. About this book:“West Point History Comes Alive in this Warmhearted Romance Trying to escape the shambles her con-man father has made of their reputation, Lucinda Curtis arrives in West Point, New York, determined to land a husband from the military academy. Campbell Conklin is first in his class and preparing to embark upon a storied career in the U.S. Army. Lucinda thinks Campbell will make the perfect husband . . . as long as he does not find out about her father. Seth Westcott also has tak [...]

    3. I enjoyed this book for the most part. The setting of West Point Academy was definitely a new one for me, and I appreciated the sense of place and time and culture that the author successfully portrayed. I did skim through some of the physical descriptions of the location that were a little drawn out. The unusual pairing of characters was fun- Lucinda who is trying to leave behind her con-artist past and live a new respectable life, and Seth who is attempting to shed his golden reputation and ha [...]

    4. Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell is about the daughter of a con-man and a soldier about to head down an unlikely path in order to take care of his sister. It follows their escapades, and tells a story of change, forgiveness, and truth.Well as much as I've loved some of Siri Mitchell's other books (especially for their rich historical-ness), Flirtation Walk wasn't so much my style. Not enough action. I wasn't very fond of the characters. The storyline was rather strange to me. Seth, one of our m [...]

    5. I am SO glad I got this book for review! I have a love/hate relationship with Christian fiction. (Meaning it's very dear to me, and I love it, but sometimes I get so fed up with the genre as a whole that I feel like taking all my CF books and tossing them in the dumpster, then feeding the CBD catalog through the paper shredder.) Well, true to pattern, I got really fed up with it a while back, and took a loooooooong hiatus from reading anything of the kind. Then this book came along, and made me [...]

    6. I had a conversation with a fellow Christian recently about Christian fiction. She said she never read it because it was like Wonder bread -- sweet and clean with some verses added but no real substance. I told her to try a couple authors and one of them was Siri Mitchell. I've read several of her books and they are normally very thoughtful, accurate, and seem to have more meaning the deeper you dig. This wasn't quite as deep as some, but after reading her author's note at the end, I know why sh [...]

    7. Okay, I normally love Siri Mitchell, but I decided that this book wasn't for me. The Lucinda was alright because I understood why she felt the need to deceive people. That was how she was raised, and she had no faith to tell her it was wrong.Seth was finally what made me decide that I didn't want to waste any more time on this book. I did not understand why he went along with the schemes of his friends. While funny, the reasoning really didn't make sense. Half-way through the book. I was pretty [...]

    8. In August of 1855, Miss Lucinda Pennyworth finds herself enroute to Buttermilk Falls, New York hoping to turn herself into a respectable young woman in search of her long lost relations. Lucinda’s sketchy past has left her wishing for family and respectability and now that she has been left on her own, she is going to do her best to make that wish come true. After arriving at her relations’ home in Buttermilk Falls outside the famed West Point Academy, Lucinda finds that she must work to pro [...]

    9. This is my second Siri Mitchell novel (the other was Like a Flower in Bloom). While I enjoyed it, I didn't like it nearly as much.I enjoyed the humor sprinkled throughout the novel and loved the characters. What fell a bit short for me was the believably of Seth's mission. It's difficult to believe someone of his character and intelligence would set forth for the goal he did. Other than that, I very much enjoyed this novel and look forward to reading others from the author.I'd love to hear which [...]

    10. Flirtation Walk, is a real place at West Point, New York, and for use only by the cadets, so enjoy your stroll here, because you really aren’t allowed.Our main character Lucinda, and she does have a few different ones. When she learns of her father’s death, she heads to Buttermilk Falls, hoping to meet her aunt and her family for the first time. She soon learns things she never knew, and hopes they don’t find out about her hidden life.I loved the relationships she forges with her new cousi [...]

    11. I didn't really like this book for one reason: God was optional.That usually indicates the author's theology. That's not to say the author doesn't believe in God and have a personal relationship with Him. It is to say the author does not believe God is central to all areas of life -- however, this isn't meant to be a lesson in theology. I just don't agree with the author's viewpoint of life. And therefore the story is lost.The book is easy to read. There is a dual point of view, beautifully, sea [...]

    12. Lucinda is a young woman who has recently learned that her father passed away. She is conflicted with feelings of affection for her father and gratitude that she no longer has to help him in his schemes as a con-man. She is looking forward to the opportunity to have a normal life and get away from fraud.She finds her way to her mother's sister near West Point Academy. While there she learns about love, respect, friendship, family, gratitude, and God. Many of these are foreign attributes. She gre [...]

    13. This book is a classic example of judging a book by its cover--hence my desire to read and review it. It's rare nowadays to see covers in this historical romance genre that don't show the character's faces. There is something more alluring to me when we are not allowed a glimpse of the character's faces and, in turn, are given a sense of place and destination of the characters. So it is with Flirtation Walk.We open to New York pre-Civil War, the antebellum era--a favorite--at West Point Military [...]

    14. Not having read any of Siri Mitchell’s books before, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel. So many historical romances seem lacklustre to me these days for a variety of reasons: flat characters, clichéd plot lines, too much expository writing, and so on. Fortunately, none of these descriptions applied to this novel. I was also concerned that a plot with a character deliberately sabotaging his academic performance would, in turn, sabotage my enjoyment of the story. It didn’t.Seth w [...]

    15. Flirtation WalkI thoroughly enjoyed this historical romance set just before the Civil War at West Point. Siri Mitchell did a great job researching and bringing the era to life. It took me a few chapters to get into the story, but then it took off at a good pace. This novel rotates between the main characters POV, but they are very unique and easy to differentiate. I especially enjoyed watching Lucinda's story unfold and her character grow throughout.The themes of redemption and grace are promine [...]

    16. Siri Mitchell continues earning her place on my Must Read list, as "Flirtation Walk" is both thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining.Lucinda Pennyworth has been raised by her con man father and has been very well-trained to get people to do what she wants them to do. When her father's death leaves her alone in the world, Lucinda decides to see if her mother's long-estranged family will take her in. Her uncle is a professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and Lucinda has never k [...]

    19. This is a comedy plot that takes place around the Civil War era, at the West Point Military Academy and a small nearby town, Buttermilk Falls.

    20. Do you like surprises? I know I do, if they are pleasant ones! When I first discovered Siri Mitchell’s new Historical Romance novel from Bethany House entitled “Flirtation Walk”, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Delightfully, it turned out I was in for a sweet surprise. Within the first few pages it captured my imagination, and by the end of the book it had become one of my favorite historical novels so far this year. Just what was so special about the story? Well, let me share 3 of my favo [...]

    21. Unexpected heroine meets a hero that's bent to be bad? How can that be? I'd say that's Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell. It's almost like a dance, that I'm quite enraptured with. We have Lucinda coming to terms with a life that is so different than the one she was taught, but one that showers her with God's grace and the knowledge between right and wrong. As she's trying to be good, why is the man she's falling in love with, Seth, top of the class so determined to be the new bad boy resident of [...]

    22. Siri Mitchell has long impressed me with her vivid imagination and her ability to craft characters that are utterly unique and thoroughly likeable. "Flirtation Walk" is no exception, as I found Lucinda in particular to be quite a compelling character as she wrestles with her past and her present on her quest to discover how she will define her future. I will be honest that at first I just wasn't sure what I thought of this book, as I didn't quite buy Seth's reasons to give up his hard-earned pla [...]

    23. My tummy did a backflip after reading the synopsis on the back of the book and I knew I was in for a challenging read. Goodbye peace of mind, hello emotional combustion! Both Seth and Lucinda are wrapped up in deceit and oh what a tangled web we all got caught in. A right angsty mess! Lucinda has a very calculated way of looking at things -- people are objects to be manipulated to achieve an end. At least that's how things start out. Needless to say, I didn't cotton to Lucinda in the beginning, [...]

    24. When I first saw the cover of this book in an email from Bethany House publishing I knew this was a book I wanted to read. This cover is so pretty. I loved the colors, the way the characters are facing, the placement of author and title, and the font. I loved everything about the cover! Since Siri Mitchell was a new-to-me author I was wondering if I would find the inside as pleasant as the cover. The answer: Yes!!!This story caught my interest from the first page. Lucinda was a very relatable ch [...]

    25. In my opinion you can always count on a novel by Siri Mitchell to be not only entertaining but informative as well. Flirtation Walk continues that tradition with a twist on the old con artist story line and a peek inside the life of a cadet at West Point in the mid 1850s.In most historical romances we are used to seeing the male be the con artist, but in this instance it is the main character Lucinda Pennyworth. At the beginning of the story she learns that her father is dead and she decides to [...]

    26. First sentence: The churning of the steamboat was relentless as it chugged down the Hudson River. Premise/plot: Our heroine, Lucinda, is mourning the loss of her father and struggling to find her place in the world. First step, of course, finding a place to stay--at least temporarily. This leads her to her mother's family. Will she be accepted by her uncle and aunt and cousins? And even if she is accepted, will she feel accepted? After all there is a difference between the two. Lucinda's past is [...]

    28. I have probably said this on the blog before, but I’ll read anything Siri Mitchell writes. Actually I’m positive I’ve said that before. She just has a way of taking any era and bringing it completely to life. So naturally her latest release is no different – I love the creative ways she tells this story. I don’t know much (read: nothing) about the history of West Point, so on that aspect, this novel was a delight. Knowing how much tradition plays in the school, it was really fun to see [...]

But when his sister is swindled out of their family farm he takes risky measures to get to the bottom of his class so he can go out west to search for the man wh [...]

    30. I thought this book was different than other books that Siri has written. I loved reading about West Point and its cadets. In some ways, it is just like any other high school. You have your top students and then you have your bottom students. In this case they are called the Immortals. They are funny, daring and plotting all at the same time!! Then we meet Lucinda's mother's family. They are ok. I like Phoebe a lot. Lucinda and Phoebe become fast friends. Seth is a serious guy until something ha [...]
