I skipped quite a bit, as the theme of spolied, manipulative, scorned woman telling the h that she herself is secretly engaged to the H, then tells the H that the h is engaged to another man, is old and overdone.
Lady Isolde has a single nephew,Andrew Clayton, the Marquess of Somerset, that she has tried to find him a wife. Andrew is not interested in getting involved with another woman after his heart was broken by his ex-fiance. Then he meets Sarah the day she meets Isolde and he is not impressed. Fast forward several days later and he meets the transformed Sarah, he is surprised that she is the same woman he met earlier.
This is where I lost interest in Sarah and Andrew falling in love. Andrew is so shallow that he's only interested in Sarah when her appearance changes. And when an old "friend" of Andrew, Lady Constance, returns to London with the plan to marry Andrew, things get even more chaotic. And Andrew lived up to his shallowness when he believes the lies Constance tells him about Sarah without even asking her about it.
Personally, I think Andrew deserved Constance. And Sarah has proven to be popular with the single men that attend the various balls.
The relationship between Sarah and her mother verses Sarah and Isolde bidding friendship is my favorite storyline. The different life Sarah lived before be father was killed at Waterloo and after his death is like night and day. Sarah's mother does not support Sarah's dream of taking ballet lessons and maybe someday becoming a professional ballerina. And the way Isolde helps prepare Sarah for her debut is also a touching storyline.
Although I was not impressed with Sarah and Andrew, in the beginning, I did enjoy the book enough to binge read it last night. And reading other reviews, I seem to be in the minority in regards to Andrew's not being quite right for Sarah.
Then again, I admit that I tend to get wrapped up in the various characters and their storylines. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I do recommend that you read the book. And I look forward to reading any comments, please be kind, as well as additional reviews. Bottom line, Fanny Finch is one of my favorite authors and I have more of her ebooks to read and review in the future.
I received an ARC of this ebook to read and give an honest review. I also purchased an ebook when it was published on Amazon.
I generally enjoy the author’s books, and I did enjoy reading this book, but in the end, the reader needs to fall in love with the characters for a romance to truly work.
