I reviewed Joanna Shupe’s A Daring Arrangement yesterday, and in the author’s note at the end she discusses some of the real history that went into the book.

The story opens with the supremely rich hero hosting a birthday party, a party where the men are all riding horses in the middle of a famous restaurant. This is based on a real event (that happened in 1903, not 1890 as it does in the book).

You can read a detailed account of the party HERE.
