I started reading this book because I wanted to read something not too long that I could use as an escape during a work break but I wasn’t impressed by it at all.
Miss Caroline Hargreaves, a bluestocking, is forced to pretend to court the notorious Lord Drake to save her brother and family from bankruptcy but ends up falling for him in the process. I enjoyed the book up to the point where her character suddenly changes from how the author portrayed her at the beginning to this very desperate person I didn’t seem to recognize. I didn’t feel like she was the same person anymore and that distorted the story for me. Another problem I had was how the story seemed rushed at some point. I know that it is a novella but I had expected it to have some more occasions where Andrew and Caroline interacted during the time they were supposed to be courting to better highlight their characters.
I couldn’t pick one character I liked that much. They all had one issue or the other and I couldn’t root for anyone. This made it worse for me.
Reading this book filled in my time but didn’t entertain me as I would have liked . Thus my low rating,
Rating: 2.5 Stars
