Overview

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.

If you like witty words, funny twists and lighthearted romances, this book fits the bill. Penelope Fairweather is a country bumpkin who has been invited by her dead mother’s best friend, the dowager of Blackthorne, to come to London to have a season with the ton and hopefully find a husband. Right from the start, you get a good dousing of this girl’s eccentricities. She brings her pet goat, Lady Bathsheba, who always gets her into trouble. She is accident prone, prattles when she gets nervous, and earns the wrath of her host, the Duke of Blackthorne, within seconds of meeting him. The Duke’s character is one that is easy to love/hate; he can be a jerk at times, but then will go and do something nice and confuse me (and Penelope too; poor girl). It was a fun confusion though. The side characters are delightful. There is the duke’s idiosyncratic grandfather who believes a man is to be judged on his mustache, the goat who eats men’s underthings, a quirky highwayman, Lord Boying (that rhymes with Annoying), and the most charming and unique character of all, Madame Bellafraunde.  I’d compare this story to a good blend of hot cocoa (crazy charming characters), Andes mints (delightful word play), and chocolate chips (wit) all stirred together to perfection. I inhaled this fun treat (goats, mustaches and all) and left my troubles and stresses behind for a little while. Yummy!
