Harry, the charming H, became just as boring as the story lurched along. The "mystery" of the story was so sadly revealed, I could hardly believe I had been interested. It was just plain silly. Not even silly as in laughable-- silly as in stupid.
I haven't the slightest inclination to continue with the series, despite being left wondering about the other females in the "Club." To be blunt, who cares? After reading this first book of the series, the other cardboard characters aren't the least bit interesting.
Also: Edited to note that of the almost 50 reviews to date, only FOUR came from those of a Verified Purchase. I firmly believe that this may well speak to why the book is rated far more highly than it deserves.
The first story features Merry Bradford, who desires nothing more than to be independent and left alone, and Harry Easton, her brother’s rakish best friend. When Merry’s father dies while her brother Daniel is sway on his wedding trip, Harry, who, by the way, has fallen head over heals with her, comes to help and protect her. Well, Merry will have nothing to do with that. Will Harry be able to convince her to let him help her? Will he be able to convince her that his rakish days are over, that he loves her, and that they belong together? She will not make it easy on him.
The characters in this story are great. The girls are so different from each other, yet are true friends. Their friendship is beautifully portrayed. Harry is strong and determined, the perfect hero for this story. Harry’s friend Grif is a typically Ton gentleman. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him. Harry’s mother is funny and not so subtle in her effort to help both gentlemen find a bride. The story moves along at a steady pace and has a bit of mystery and danger, and a lot of humor (the girl’s attempt at renovating the dower house is hilarious). There is a bit of sadness, but this is a happy story. I think the other stories in the series will follow suit, and I look forward to them all.
The ARC of this book was gift. The review is mine.
Merry is more or less a social outcast. She and three friends swear off men based on their experiences, forming the Spinsters Club. While Merry's brother Daniel honeymoons in Spain, an urgent message arrives for him. Merry learns that her father has died. She sends word to her brother and then assumes the reins for the estate until her brother returns home. In the mean time her brother's good friend, Harcourt "Harry", has come to the realization that he is ready to settle down leaving his rakish ways behind. He has found that Merry is the woman for him. The problem is that she hasn't realized her desire for Harry, though Harry makes his desires known. Will Harry be able to woo Merry, or will he give up? Will she be "ruined" by spending so much time with Harry?
