On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Eloise Drake’s prim demeanor hides the turbulent past she believes is finally behind her. A mathematical genius, she’s now a successful accountant for the largest engineering project in 1908 New York. But to her dismay, her new position puts her back in the path of the man responsible for her deepest heartbreak.
Alex Duval is the mayor of a town about to be wiped off the map. The state plans to flood the entire valley where his town sits in order to build a new reservoir, and Alex is stunned to discover the woman he once loved on the team charged with the demolition. With his world crumbling around him, Alex devises a risky plan to save his town–but he needs Eloise’s help to succeed.
Alex is determined to win back the woman he thought he’d lost forever, but even their combined ingenuity may not be enough to overcome the odds against them.

In My Opinion
I love books that feature intelligent and capable women, and Eloise Drake is exactly that. A math genius who has worked hard to obtain her CPA certification, Eloise proves herself a force to reckoned with in a world dominated by men. But all work and no play defines Eloise’s life.
Returning to the town where she spent much of her youth as a representative of the state of New York puts Eloise back in the orbit of Alex Duvall. The boy she once knew and loved once upon a time is now mayor of Duvall Springs.
Alex and Eloise are opposites in many ways. She’s straight-laced and follows the rules while he is a dreamer and jumps into schemes both feet first without any plan whatsoever in place. She’s from a wealthy, but emotionally distant family while Alex comes from the working calls with strong family ties. Yet the two of them together can move mountains (or at least towns).
An enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining conclusion to the Empire State series, A Desperate Hope encourages us to dream big and reach for the seemingly impossible.
