Miss Katherina Elliott leads a simple life, teaching impoverished children, just as her parents did before her. Kate knows little of her family's past: only that every three months, a mysterious benefactor sends her enough money to pay the school's mounting bills. The envelope is brought by the solicitor across the street—a man Kate knows she shouldn't want but can't resist.

Lord Joshua Stuart, the second son of the Duke of Beaufort, has never fit in with the rest of his family. Though he has a practice on Bond Street, he's always preferred working in Cheapside, where he can make a real difference. It has nothing to do with his attractive, sweet neighbor across the street, or so he tells himself. But when Kate's school is threatened, Joshua knows he must help her.

As Joshua and Kate work to save the school, they grow closer, until their love for each other can no longer be denied. Their search brings them to the famed fortune teller, Madame Zeta, who holds the key to Kate's past. But when Kate's fate intertwines with Madame Zeta's, nothing will ever be the same. Will her love for Joshua survive fortune's twists, or will they end up as the final folly?

I like a true romance that does not involve crime and remains light hearted. This had some sinister moments, but in general was enjoyable.

Fate brought these two together at just the right time. The mystery of who is sending the money brings them closer and leads them answers they didn’t expect. You’ll never see who is behind the threat to the school coming or any of the surprises that pop up. Their love is a strong one that can withstand anything thrown at them. Kate just wants to teach the local children and be happy, but fate has other ideas. I loved her from the start because she didn’t back down from anything. She didn’t run when she realized her feelings. Joshua lives to help people and helping Kate is at the top of his list. I loved the work he did and how he treated everyone like family and friends. He wasn’t going to let her do anything alone. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review.

Miss Katherina Elliott parents have passed away, but she knows little of her family's past except a mysterious benefactor send her money every three months. Money she has needed to survive and help others. Lord Joshua Stuart, the second son of the Duke of Beaufort, has never fit in with the rest of his family. His office is across from Katherine’s school. Joshua and Kate work to save the school, they grow closer even as they search for her real father and family and fate intertwines with her life Madame Zeta's the fortune teller. Kate’s world is turned upside down by the unexpected news her father was a lord, and her parents were not really her family. I loved excellent story and one I voluntarily read and reviewed.

I rate the book between 3.5-4 stars for this read. I really liked Kate and how she knew what she was doing with her life and such. Joshua was a sweet, sensitive guy in the story. I liked how he watched out for Kate and how they both had feelings for each other that they had never spoke of. Their histories were well explained and you got a lot of information about why the characters were acting like they were and who they were! I disliked the inner monologue that seemed a constant throughout the story. I also disliked how after the Kate started learning things about her past and started thinking about her future, she almost became wishywashy and needed Joshua's guidance to tell her what to do. His response I loved, was always he'll do whatever she needs him to and will be there for her. I felt the ending was rushed a little. You spend the whole book with the heroine asking herself all these questions, and suddenly All the questions are answered in the last little bit of the book! I liked the characters, but didn't Love the characters, although Joshua remained constant throughout the whole book. Thank you for the advanced copy, the read was enjoyable!

Although I have not read them all, this Fortunes of Fate series has been awesome. All written by authors well know in the historical romance genre. This, the final one, brings us full circle to Madame Zeta, who has played an intrical part in each story. Bestowing a fortune on each hero or heroine with fate seeming to take place. Now, her story comes out but the focus is on two people who may tie into her. A schoolteacher who works teaching poor children in Cheapside, Katherine's parents had both passed away but she did not know a lot about her family history. Lord Joshua Stuart, the second son of a Duke focuses mainly on his law practice in Cheapside where he can help people. Their paths cross at least every three months when a package arrives for him with instrutctions to give to Kate. A sweet story that takes you on a journey of Kate, Joshua and Madame Zeta that will keep you turning the pages. Christina McKnight is one of my favorite athors and I am always glad to read one of her fabulous stories!! Lori D

Fortune's Final Folly by Christina McKnight is a fantastic historical romance. I do suggest readers read Fortunes of Fate (free at the time of this review) before starting this book. Ms. McKnight has produced a well-written book furnished with an excellent cast of characters. Katherina Elliott is the daughter of a vicar and his wife, serving the poor and teaching children alone since her parents are both dead now. Joshua is the second son of a duke and a solicitor and works part of the time for the poor. Joshua and Katherina's story is loaded with drama, humor, action and suspense. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Christina McKnight in the future. Fortune's Final Folly is book 10 of the Fortunes of Fate Series. It can be read as a standalone but like I said, I do suggest reading the prequel. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
