Some of the things I liked about this book: I enjoyed her writing style. The interactions between the group of friends was heartwarming, and fresh. Loyalty to one's friends was a strong theme throughout the book, and I thought that was sweet, if somewhat frustrating at times. Their dialogue was witty, and clever.
There were some things about the story that bugged me. While I loved Lucy's dialogue with her friends, I find myself getting upset with her every time she spoke to the duke. For someone known for being so witty and clever, I found the way she spoke to him to be rude and a little off-putting. She chose to be mean, when there were so many more intelligent things she could have said. The other thing that really bothered me was about Julian (the dying soldier friend). Supposedly he was a friend of Cassandra, but basically promised to her cousin. However, he made his friend Derek promise to marry Cassandra. This was a real headscratcher to me, and I felt it should be explained better. I know that she didn't because she wants to right another book about it, but still, it annoyed me. Otherwise, I really liked this book, and am looking forward to Cass's story.
