Description from amazon.com:

Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye. The dowager, no less, has invited her for a season in London, where she will attempt to catch a husband.

Thus begins our heroine’s tale as she attempts to tackle the London season with all her rustic finesse. Unfortunately, her rustic finesse turns out to be as delicate as a fat bear trying to rip apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees.

What follows is a series of misadventures, love affairs, moonlit balls, fancy clothes, fake moustaches, highwaymen, sneering beauties, pickpockets, and the wrath of a devilishly handsome duke.


The title should tell you right off that this is going to be a wildly funny ride.  Penelope is a heroine that cannot put a foot right and cannot manage to stop talking when she is nervous.  She embarrasses herself and everyone around her.  The Duke wants to ship her back to Finnshire, The Dowager Duchess and Lady Anne want her to stay and try to make her into a lady ala Eliza Doolittle.  Penelope falls in love, her objective in coming to London, but it is with the one person who wants nothing to do with her. (Isn’t that always the way of things?)

This was a fun light read.  Well written with entertaining if over the top situations.  The Duke’s name calling was a bit off putting especially in light of the stories outcome.  But enough of my dithering here or there will be spoilers!  Read this when you are looking for something totally fun.

  1. This was a fun read, but like you said, the hero’s name calling and general attitude towards the heroine put me off. I felt like I could’ve very well done without the hero 🙂
