Their love is, at the roots, a forbidden love. Eddie's mother feels that her daughter is doomed to a life of sorrow (as is their family) if she can't marry into money. Poor Ezekiel has none of that on his own. It takes a scheming cousin to give them a shove in the right direction. These shoves end up pushing them into hilarious encounters, where the butterflies are almost fluttering off the pages. I swear I got butterflies just reading about those naive first encounters. It was adorable!
It was definitely a case of mostly insta-love, and the plot progressed at a flat-out run, but it had the feel of a good RomCom in a historical setting. Definitely an easy, light-hearted, one sitting read. - George with GMB
Adorable is what this novella by Kathleen Kimmel is! It's book #1.5 in the Birch Hall Romance series, and it's well worth reading. There were so many scenes that would just make me smile from the cuteness.
Lady Eddie is a wallflower, but not by choice. Her mother is controlling and only ever points out Eddie's faults. The poor girl unfortunately has a low self esteem and no nerve to fight her mother and her dictates. Eddie's mother sets her focus on one particular lord who is about three times Eddie's age, and Eddie likes the idea because she doesn't feel she deserves more.
Mr. Blackwood (Ezekiel) is very close to a regency era Sheldon Cooper, but he isn't annoying. He is socially awkward and all of society finds him strange. At the young age of twenty he isn't looking for a wife and no one is nagging at him to settle down. The only exception is his cousin, who detects Ezekiels affections for Lady Eddie.
Because of their shy natures, the romance between these two is just too cute! Kimmel made the two so very perfect for each other that you're rooting for the match from the very beginning. Along with this adorable romance, Kimmel throws in a little sub plot and a dash excitement at the end.
It's my best understanding that the events in this book take place before the first in the series, A Lady's Guide to Ruin, but you can read either first and no spoiling will happen. This novella was a wonderful follow up to Kathleen Kimmel's debut, and I cannot wait to continue the series.

I loved this story as it tells the eventual love story of two people who just don’t quite fit into TON Society. What both find out is that they are quite compatible with each other. Eddie is desperate to marry and is even willing to consider an older man to get her out of the house and from under the control of her mother. She knows Ezekiel has input with his uncle so she schemes a way to let him help with the matchmaking.
Ezekiel is a scientist and would much rather deal with his plants than any social situation his uncle is always dragging him into. Eddie is fascinating to him as she shares his love of plants however when she asks him for help in securing the relationship with his uncle he reluctantly agrees to help. They both need help to arrange a meeting with each other in order to conspire, as social etiquette could not have them seen together. The greenhouse becomes their meeting place and there they learn a lot about plants, feelings and love.
The pace of the story and the setting drew me in from page one. The characters are grown so that the reader soon becomes involved and cheering for everything to work out. It is nice to see that the story didn’t need a handsome Prince and a beautiful Princess to fulfil the love story.
A totally delightful light Sunday afternoon read and I know I will look forward to other stories by Kathleen Kimmel.
