I liked the start of this new series and anticipate enjoying it more than the author's previous series based on this first installment. I'm now impatiently awaiting the rest! I was a little irritated by Georgie's lack of trust, though it was in character. But I still await a book where a lover has sufficient faith to listen and fairly judge the explanation of a misunderstanding before making a drastic decision. That's what I expect from someone who's made a serious commitment - or they shouldn't have committed. Though this book was better than many in that respect. Still I might have to try my hand at writing my own story of trust... Overall, a good book with clean romance. A lot of stealthy kissing though, which was ironic considering the source... :)

This is such a great idea for a series of books! I already can't wait to read the next one. It was fun to get to know each of the very different young women in the group that has bonded together as friends and supporters. By today's standards, mid-twenties are not old maids, but in Regency times they are past their prime. Each woman has a unique personality and situation that has brought them to this point, whether it's too selective, too shy, too opinionated, too independent, too cynical, or undesirable family. For some it's a mystery why no man has taken an interest. Georgie has had a desire to marry and have a family, but she never received any offers, despite her beauty and moderate dowry. We get to see her conflict and angst over her pride in what she has created with the Spinsters, but also her regrets and unfulfilled dreams. The first part of the book was slow for me and I felt it was too wordy, with lots of inconsequential conversation, even though it was giving a good feel for the dynamic of the group of friends. I would have liked to see more plot-based action with their role as Spinsters and models/mentors for the younger girls of Society. Tony really livened things up and the more time he and Georgie spend together, the more I became interested and involved in the book and their relationship. Their romance was unexpected for both and their delight in those falling-in-love feelings was a pleasure to read. They both revel in the affection they have for each other and the joy in expressing it, especially with sweet kisses ;) I liked the first part of the book okay, but I loved the second part!
