Nothing-Ventured is a warm and vibrant rendering of a story about a young woman out to prove her worth to society. Although she came from a very wealthy family, she had a falling-out with her father who thought that she could not handle what life had in store, so she set out on her own. She developed a small business utilizing her love of restoring old Victorian mansions and made quite a name for herself in the business world. As they say, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Her father was also quite a mogul in the business world and famous for his investments and enormous wealth. While looking for investors for her development project of building a group of Victorian reproductions, Molly makes the acquaintance of Paul, who is a lawyer for an investment consortium. Love at first sight was incorporated in this charming tale including a steamy romance. Molly’s independence and fear of her own self-reliance added to the daily problems that tried to keep the lovers apart. I was gifted this novel in the hopes of a good review and I would be delighted to read it again.

What a lovely book! Molly is too swept up with work to worry about romance until Paul comes along and they turn each other's worlds upside down.
Molly is someone that I can identify with, and one of my favorite main characters as of late. The detail offered by Oldaker makes the story pop off of the pages. I feel a different cover could really add to the value of the book, though. I'm a sucker for beautifully done covers, and this one doesn't do it justice. All in all, everyone should give this book a chance. It's a perfect, quick read.
**I was gifted this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to the author and/or publisher.

This book was such a great read. I'm not usually a romance reader but this was so well done I couldn't put it down. The plot was extremely interesting and the characters had so much depth that you felt you knew them. I enjoyed how the author put some conflict in and really loved the two main characters as well as the others. It flowed smoothly, although things were repeated at times but only when necessary. Loved the epilogue as well. A very good read.

This was an ok book. It jumped in a bit to fast with the characters immediate attraction to each other and was a bit predictable as to how it was going to turn out. Also the female character Molly was not consistent with what she said she wanted and what she allowed to happen with Paul during the Christmas party.
The writing was ok also, but the author repeated things that had been stated or said previously. When a character is retelling another character what happened they give all the details, almost a cut and paste of the previous event. Also does this with things the characters think. With a bit more condensing of these items it would make the book a more enjoyable read.

This was a very good story about family, woman in construction, and romance. The story shows how much effort all three of these things takes to make work. It will keep your interest from start to finish and leave you with a good feeling when it is over. Looking forward to the next in the series.
