Blurb; Can old-fashioned courtship survive in today’s dating world?
When Emma Love’s mother retires, it is time for her to take the reins of the family dating agency and build on its success. And she has a fresh new idea: to host a Jane Austen-style Regency Season of glamourous events where potential lovers can actually take the time to get to know each other in person, with no apps in between.
Emma has no intention of becoming romantically involved herself, of course; she is a matchmaker on the hunt for the perfect partner for ladies like Annie (who thought she had missed her chance at love a long time ago), Jane (recently divorced and nervously stepping into her new life) and wild child Lydia (more interested in hooking up than finding Mr Darcy).
As the Season unfolds, there is only one fly in Emma’s ointment – the irritating Mr Knight, with his casual attitude and gentle cynicism. Why is she allowing him to ruffle her calm, ordered life and why can’t she stop thinking about him? She is far too sensible to take a chance on love – isn’t she?
Jane Austen meets Sophie Kinsella in this laugh-out-loud, captivating romantic comedy.
My Review; This is a brilliant chick-lit, romance story. I devoured 60% if this in one go. It’s a lovely easy read which follows three single friends Lydia, Annie and Jane who decide to take part in an old fashioned season for love together, run by siblings Emma and Josh. Will the ladies fall in love the old fashioned way? Maybe the organiser will fall in love too? Anything can happen at these events. I loved all the characters and their crazy back stories and families all different in their own way. A happy ending for every character is a bonus. Really enjoyed reading this one. A well deserved four out of five stars.
