Book Notes:

Now I understand why I'm loyal to my Kindle (which I finally found thank heavens!) and why I'm still old fashioned and enjoy purchasing actual books. It's just a far more enjoyable process in totality. I think I would've enjoyed this book so much more if my eReader was not lagging. It was rather irritating reading faster than the pages were loading... it was such a waste of my time! I was so vexed that I had to slow down my pace, and I had to stare at pages of text that I was so ready to move on from. 

As far as regency romances go, I think this was rather cute although I expected a little bit more quirk. The synopsis from Amazon made me believe it was going to be a love story with so much more spunky and charm, but it unfortunately didn't live up to my expectations. I expected it to have a little more dynamic interactions, a little more dessert and well a little more pizzazz. 

Overall though, its cute, easy to read and maybe something you can pick up at your local library or borrow from a friend.

Book Quotes: 

"It had been a feeling she hadn't even realised she'd been missing- of belonging, of place, of being with someone who utterly and completely and still thought you were worth laughing with."

"It is better to marry a good man than rush into a disaster..."

Rating: 2.5/5
