The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

As a crazy Downton Abbey fan, I enjoy all things British.  The American Heiress is the story of Cora, a rich young American, who goes to England to snag a husband with a title.  She falls in love, but has to learn to navigate the tricky English social scene.  This was a quick fun read for me.  I know some people did not love the end, but I was satisfied with it.

From Amazon:

Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals. Money, Cora soon learns, cannot buy everything, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage.
