Reviews - What do customers think about Maid To Match?

Maid to Match Review  Sep 20, 2010
Maid to Match is a historical romance novel written by Deeane Gist. Set in the late 1800's, Maid to Match is a story about Tillie Reese, a maid at the Biltmore mansion. Coming from a lower-class family, Tillie has been working her way up the ladder of success since childhood. She is on the verge of getting everything she ever dreamed of, a position of lady's maid to the lady of the house. A life of adventure, prestige, wearing fancy clothes, traveling, reading, a life that is everything she has ever wanted. Or so she thought. When Tillie is enlisted to help tame Mack Danvers, a mountain man turned footman, she finds that her heart has opened up to new dreams. Torn between the world she has always wanted and the world she has never known, Tillie must choose which path she will follow.

As with all historical romance novels, competition is fierce and originality nearly impossible. Love is the universal language, and therefore will always carry a semblance of cliche. It has happened a million times before :) This book is no exception. However, despite it's general failings as a genre, I enjoyed reading this book. It was interesting, moving, and even inspiring. I liked the reality of Tillie's mother. Her human failings, her hopes and dreams she has placed in her daughter, and her attitude towards Tillie's end choice. They gave the book a ring of authenticity. Based on historical facts, Maid to Match was a great book for a rainy day.

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoy's this genre, or as a gift for any woman aged 14 and up. A message of following your heart, it promises to uplift you and leave you smiling at the end.

Another fantastic book by Deeanne Gist  Jun 9, 2010
This was adorable ... not only did I find it hard to put down ... our daughter, who is pregnant with their 4th child ... was up almost all night reading it ... boy did she regret not sleeping when their 1 & 2 year old got up the next day (thankfully her 10 year old can get himself going) ... Of course, I get the phone call the next day .. as I had given her the book before I got it ... telling me that it was "my fault" that she didn't get any sleep that night .... sure right ... but I have to admit I understood completely as I was reading the book ... I had trouble putting it down as I went to my dental appointment even ... it was so cute.

What a different setting .. a parlormaid set at Biltmore Estates ... Tillie thinking that she needed to get to the top. How many feel that is only what they are striving for ... what they "feel" success ... is ... but it is so much more ... and so many people miss it. I guess it is easier for me to say this ...as I have been exceedingly happily married for 40 years to the love of my life ... had a dream career that was cut down all to short due to health issues ... but we managed to be very careful, even with our busy & extremely successful careers not to forget that our marriage and our children needed to come first although our careers took many, many hours out of our lives. Now, the only thing I do regret is that I got so busy that our church life took a back seat ... I have seen so many other so that as well ... balance if others could only obtain it all. I felt that was such a great thing that Mack was trying to show Tillie was that obtaining success through riches was not success ... she was going to be so rich but she needed to see it... but Tillie needed to show Mack also that he needed not to strike out first and think later ... I think they balanced each other out fabulously which is what a great marriage is made of .. you have to swing back and forth to make it work ... but boy is it worth it ... another great novel ...by Deeanne ... my only complaint is that I don't get enough of them ... but maybe that is the balance in her life!
 
Deeanne Gist is now one of my all time favorite authors.  Jun 6, 2010
I read in order to be swept away by characters that seem real to me. All of Deeanne Gist's historical romances have been wonderful, but Maid to Match was positively un-put-downable. It is my hope that more readers will discover this talented author and help make her as famous as she deserves to be.
 
Our Dreams, God's Plan  Jun 4, 2010
*****
This lovely romance is set in Ashville, NC at the Biltmore estate at the turn of the century, and is rich with intriguing details about the estate, the servant class, the social order of the time, and so much more. The author, Deanne Gist, goes to great lengths to make the story historically accurate. Reading this novel is an adventure, exploring a portal to a world that none of us would normally know much about. Today we are in many ways class-less, but at the time this novel takes place, opportunities were carefully circumscribed by social class. The Vanderbilts (who built the Biltmore) differed from many other wealthy people in that they cared for their servants and treated them as people. Still, to be limited by one's birth was hard and this experience is explored in this novel.

It is the story of Tillie, the head parlormaid at the Biltmore, a young lady who has been raised and educated to fulfill a high position in the home of the wealthiest people in the area--an amazing opportunity. When she falls in love she must choose between this dream of her entire life and the man she falls in love with. She must also discern what God's will is in her decision.

Although this is technically a Christian romance, I would call it a "Christian lite" romance, as faith does not have an overt role in the story line. I would expect that this is a novel that would appeal to all fans of historical romance, no matter what their faith leanings.

Highly recommended.

Maid to Match  Jun 3, 2010
Excellent storyline, well researched and flows beautifully. A definite read in my opinion. Ms. Gist books have a slightly spicy flavor, so if you are offended by spice I don't suggest reading this one. It was expertly done and never taken too far, but she really makes you feel the chemistry between a man and a woman. It was not a book that I put down and walked away from. In fact, I stayed up late to finish it. I've stopped giving out 5 stars unless it is a terrific read because of the economy. I don't want people to waste their money. You will not waste your money or your time reading this book. I actually found it educational because she included a lot of how Biltmore was built and ran.
 
Another winner from Deeanne Gist  May 21, 2010
It was really nice to be able to read another Deeanne Gist novel, especially after having one in February, her book, Beguiled, written with another author.
This one is extremely rich in detail about Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. She has done some remarkable research and it is absolutely fascinating. However, that is just one aspect of the story. I never give away any plots of the books I review, but this one is full of all the goodness of a Deeanne Gist book. Mack Danvers is a wonderful man, caring of women and children in a time when they were mostly considered property. Tillie wants to spend her life as a ladies maid, not even thinking that maybe God has another plan for her life that includes love and a family all her own. That's all I'm giving away, but this book is rich in history and God's love, guidance and direction. And also a good measure of healthy, clean romance thrown in. Don't miss it.
