'Something Old' is a quick prologue (basically one chapter) which takes place in 1818 England, and tells how four teenage friends who attend Madame Rochambeaux's Gentle School for Girls discover a hundred-year-old sixpence they hope is lucky and will aid them in finding their future husbands. It also gives a little background with regards to ages, family history, and how each girl ended up at the boarding school. Although really short, I found it very endearing and by the time I finished I couldn't wait to watch Anne, Cordelia, Elinor and Beatrice all find their true loves =)
SOMETHING NEW by Stefanie Sloane - 3 Stars***
'Something New' takes place almost ten years later in London and has Miss Anne Brabourne unexpectedly befriending Rhys Hamilton, the Duke of Dorset, during his aunt's ball. She needs to marry in a hurry, and he offers to help her in her search of the perfect husband... Right away I was distracted by a discrepancy with Anne's age which threw me off and had me going back to the prologue and checking what I'd previously read. While I liked both Anne and Rhys and I thought their romance was sweet, this was my least favorite of the bunch. I did enjoy the author's writing and there were some charming characters, however, I felt like the story was short on plot as there's ultimately nothing really keeping these two apart. Then there was the ending with its obligatory sex scene which I thought was rather unnecessary. Overall this one was just okay.
SOMETHING BORROWED by Elizabeth Boyle - 5 Stars*****
'Something Borrowed' picks up less than a week before the wedding of Anne and her Duke. Cordelia has just received the lucky coin and finds herself in a fix. To avoid a trio of matchmaking aunts she invented a fake betrothed and now needs to 'borrow' a fiancee for the upcoming wedding. Who better than her childhood friend Kipp, except he's now an Earl and about to propose to another woman... I loved Cordelia who was so full of zest and life and who brought Kipp back to life too. All the characters practically jumped off the pages, including Cordie's companion and Kipp's brother. This story made me laugh, smile, and simply melted my heart. The romance was both tender and passionate and beautifully written. There was also a nice surprise at the end which I didn't see coming. All in all I thought it was a true joy to read and I look forward to reading more from Ms. Boyle soon!
SOMETHING BLUE by Laura Lee Guhrke - 4 Stars****
'Something Blue' takes place a few hours after the wedding of Cordelia to her Earl. Lady Elinor Daventry needs the coins luck to make an advantageous marriage. Then its stolen by Lawrence Blackthorne, her former fiancee and the man intent on proving her father guilty of treason... I really liked this story which was well written and had a bit of a mystery to it. I adored Ellie whose loyalty to her father was admirable, and even Lawrence, whose honor and duty cost him the woman he loved. Although it was a bit more angsty than I prefer, it was nonetheless an engaging and heartfelt read. I loved seeing these two get their second chance at love, and watching the sparks they created whenever they were together. There is one sex scene but I thought it was an emotional and lovely reunion. In the end I enjoyed it and found it intriguing and compelling.
...AND A SIXPENCE IN HER SHOE by Julia Quinn - 5 Stars*****
This story picks up immediately following the wedding of Elinor and Lawrence. After a bit of cajoling by her friends Beatrice Heywood accepts the coin, even finishing off the rhyme by putting it in her shoe. Then fate suddenly throws her into the path of the damaged Lord Frederick Grey-Osborne... I pre-ordered this book because of Julia Quinn since I always hope for a little of her old Bridgerton magic. Although this was the shortest story in the collection (besides the prologue) it was written with charm, wit, and heart. I found Bea's enthusiasm and joy for astronomy contagious, and loved seeing her bring light back to Frederick's life. The declarations he makes at the end were utterly beautiful and literally brought tears to my eyes. This was the only story without a sex scene, but honestly it didn't need one. It was a touching and lovely romance all on its own, and an absolute joy to read!
The first story - something new - was interesting but there was no obstacles for them not to be together and to take them so long to come to that conclusion, even for a short story, was a bit disappointing. I did enjoy it nonetheless
The second story -something borrowed- was adorable and one of my favorite of the bunch. Thankful there were no misunderstandings really. Although the heroine is suddenly you know what at the end, wasn't necessary.
The third story - something blue - I really disliked. Ellie and Lawrence are the most frustrating heroes. In the beginning I stood by Ellie, how dare Lawrence the man who supposedly loves her is willing to betray her that way. She was right, it would ruin her reputation, they do not live in our times. I hated Lawrence from the start so I knew I wasn't going to like this if they ended up together. Whether her father was guilty or not, I don't think Ellie should have end up with him, he will always be the man who tried to ruin her father. Her father may have done something greedy and evil but in the end he was a father to her or she wouldn't be so loyal so even if she came to terms with it Lawrence would always be the man who didn't tak her feelings or the time period or her reputation into consideration. She should have married someone else. They weren't meant for each other.
Lastly, the last story was lovely and another favorite of mine. I thought it was super sweet.
Overall, except for "something blue" I did enjoy this but couldn't rate it higher. If you do read it, just keep your expectations low and you'd enjoy it.
