My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sometimes you don't want huge drama in romance, but instead want an entertaining read about nice people figuring out they were meant for each other. The drama comes from their navigating through the process, and their internal conflicts more than the external.
It takes a talented author to navigate the simple without losing the reader, and Julia Quinn's a pro. Billy is an unusual miss, more interested in running her family's estate than making her come-out. George is the eldest son of the family next door, and also happens to be heir to an earldom. He doesn't have career options as his brother do. He can't fight for king and country, he needs to stay home and prepare for the role he'll take on someday. These two were meant for each other, but it takes them forever to figure it out.
It's a sweet story, and that's a high compliment. I found myself smiling at certain scenes because they were so delightful, and it was a perfect read for a relaxing weekend.
