Obviously at 102 pages this was a quick read, but regardless of the length, TYCOON was an excellent read and one I totally enjoyed. Starting it, I hadn’t realized that TYCOON was novella length but the writing was so crisp and dialogs so witty that I just immersed myself to enjoy a great story.
Ted Harper was simply minding himself on a train platform when a beautiful young lady rushed up to embrace him and give him a smack on the cheek and talking a mile a minute so that he couldn’t get a word in edgewise!
Clara Dawson, shop girl from a department store hadn’t been intending to board a train fleeing from New York but after witnessing her bosses murder by a notorious politician and his police bodyguard who would believe her!
The chemistry between Ted the stranger, and Clara was great especially when he offered her a seat in his private car. He’s everything she ever desired even if a little stiff, but as a very nice bank clerk, she supposed that was how he should be. However as the danger slips in and Clara doesn’t tell him the truth of why she’s anxious to leave the city, Ted suspects she is just another female trying to ambush him into marriage. By the time he does come to believe her story, will it be too late to see her and lose the one female he has come to adore?
Bottom Line: I loved this story, the character fleshing, and great writing! Can’t wait to read more of the Knickerbocker Club!
