Good Man, Dalton Kindle Edition
Greta Hansen has arrived in Manhattan to intern with the Vanderhaven Corporation, a company owned by distant and very wealthy relatives. But she soon realizes she's actually been hired to keep watch on their capricious daughter, social media celebrity Cece. No last name required. Why bother? The entire Twitterverse already watches every fabulous move she makes. Including an unfortunate shoplifting mishap when Cece decides to go off script. It's then that a handsome--and homeless--stranger comes to the rescue.
Dalton Bishop has a secret. A man of privilege, he's been living on the streets as a social experiment. Now, in gracious payback for his chivalry, Cece invites him to an elegant fund-raiser called the Forgotten Man Ball. It's Greta he's taken with, however--and to Greta's surprise, she's taken right back. But Dalton has one more secret up his tattered sleeve. For right now, though, he's just happy embracing the woman of his dreams. It's only the beginning of a romantic and revealing adventure that will take them to a place where money, class, and fame matter far less than true love.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
She referenced an acknowledgment to her Beta Readers, and I personally think they did her a big disservice. Although maybe I don’t understand what a Beta Reader is supposed to do. It is
not the same as an editor, which in my opinion, they or that person did not do what they were paid to do.
The conversations that took place were really forced, most of them hard and awkward to read. Again, in my opinion, the conversations should have been complementary to thoughts.
This should have been corrected through the editor doing their job.
And finally I got very little emotion from the story. It was almost as if it was a “rote” book. And I’m sure that was not McQuestion’s intent.
I believe that she would do herself and her readership a service by taking some writing classes or at the least really read and study what some other top tier authors are doing. A few that I really appreciate are Christina Tetreault, Catherine Bybee, Julia Kent, (not my favorite but Debbie Macomber) Susannah Nix and many other excellent authors that write Romance stories that grab the reader and don’t let go. These are just a few I can think of quickly.
Anyway that’s my opinion, but I’m not an author I just know what I like to read and enjoy.
Don’t quit, just get better, please.
I gave 2 * for the effort although it probably should be 1*.

The beginning of the book i found interesting because it began by not being a love or romantic tale at all. I thought from a few reviews I’d read it might be.
I loved the way Greta is such a regular girl and Cece has a lot going on personally and I became keen to find out what was going on with her.
Moments were touching for me and funny at times. There’s a very real point going through the book concerning ex veterans, which highlighted a real problem that is true in a lot of countries.
To me Good Man Dalton-
Is a feel good story (which could so easily be a film) with more going on besides.
