I enjoyed this historical romance thoroughly. Kleypas sets up a lovely premise with the four wallflowers working together to snag a husband in the difficult market of the early Victorian era. Watching Annabelle and Simon's relationship develop is a thorough delight and the denouement was actually a surprise for me as the final conflict was not what I had anticipated. I'll be picking up the other books in this series and Kleypas has made my list of authors to pick up when I'm in the mood for a historical romance.

This is an excellent series-opening romance, focusing on four wallflowers who make a pact to help each other attract husbands. Annabelle Peyton is the heroine of this first installment, and the story of her romance with a wealthy man of common birth is unusually astute when it comes to social issues and the ways that the world of the aristocracy was changing in the face of industrialism in the mid-19th century. But beyond that, it's also just a really fun book! There's lots of witty banter and humor, and the hero and heroine are exceedingly well-matched. Highly recommended for fans of Julia Quinn and Eloisa James, though this setting of this one is a bit later than theirs.

Really enjoyed this first in a four-part series. I liked the tension and fun between Annabelle and Simon and I also liked the personalities of the other girls, especially the American debutantes Lilian and Daisy, who seem fiery and good heroines for future books in the series.

Many romance novels only have one main female character, and any other women who appear are irrelevant or evil. Lisa Kleypas starts off this series by introducing 4 women who are all friends and want to help each other! It's great to see a romance that addresses the many kinds of relationships that are important.
