What can I say? Mrs. Rachel really knows how to keep her readers enthralled! I cant wait for book three. I love how she plots the story, how entertaining her characters are and she always has one character that you love to hate. From beginning to end, I smiled through this story. A girl sneeking out to dance like a gypsy, causing her family scandal. Years later, ready to marry, she goes to stay with Sara and Nicholas (characters from the first story) and there she meets her perfect match! Sebastian, ready to settle, is quite taken with Emma, first as a friend, later deepening into love. These two make a wonderful couple, especially seeing how they like to have fun! From throwing grapes at people, kissing and getting busted at balls and causing a stir or two! The characters are enchanting and will keep you draw to the last page! Id recommend this story to anyone who adores fun loving people, a plot that doesnt stop and a love so sweet! Pick up a copy! Its just as good as the first story, The Ugly Duckling Debutante. Havent read it? What are you waiting for? Your missing out! ;)

I can't recommend this at all. I only read the free sample, but if that isn't sufficient indicator of the quality of the whole book then what is the point of offering the sample? Aside from the frequent misspellings and formatting errors that mar the presentation of the Nook version, this is so hopelessly written that I can't make sense of it. Supposedly a novel, it's so devoid of any detail that it reads like an overlong and directionless short story. When is this set? Is it fantasy? Historical fiction? Contemporary romance? There is not a single statement to indicate when this is taking place, and the rather ludicrous noble titles would seem to imply a fantasy setting. Entire chapters trudge by presented in the vaguest possible terms, featuring named but interchangeable entities bantering at each other without saying anything. Who are they? Where are they? When are they? Is it day? Night? Winter? Summer? Are they clothed? Naked? Indoors? Outdoors? The author makes no effort to define the characters, their circumstances or surroundings, and no effort to draw us into the story or make us care about any of it. Aside from this, the monolithic dialog consists largely of tortured passages of questionable grammar, tired cliches, and irrelevant utterances that don't seem to fit the supposed lofty origins (and implied intelligence) of the speakers. I've read other free samples that immediately made me want to buy the whole book. This one definitely did not. If the author can construct a plot (and I have no evidence to support the existence of such an ability) she might be better off sticking to short fiction, where the detail normally expected of a novel is not required.

    It was okay

    I struggled a bit to get through this book but it was cheap so it was worth the read.

    I'd give this 3.5 is possible.  Cute & entertaining.

    Nice book very quick read.

    Overall good book to relax with. Quick read, not a very complex storyline, easy to understand and good entertainment for a four hour flight.

    However, I wouldn't recommend this if you are looking for a very involved novel that'll hook you for days, just not that kind of book.
