In general, I'm not a fan of an anthologies or short stories. I know that some people love them. My husband, for example, would rather read an anthology than a full-length novel. But I digress. I picked this up because I'm a Julia Quinn fan, I'm not familiar with the other authors. I'd rate Quinn's story as five stars. However, I couldn't really get into the stories by the other authors. But I am giving them the benefit of the doubt because they wrote these stories around one of Quinn's characters, Lady Whistledown, and not their own. I plan to read a full length novel by each author before I judge their other work. ( )

"Susannah Ballister was the most popular debutante in London... until Clive Mann-Formsby jilted her in a most callous fashion. Now that she's older and wiser, she wants no contact with any of the Mann-Formsbys... but what can she do when Clive's brother David, the Earl of Renminster, decides that Susannah will make a perfect wife, after all... for him.

Nicely done, though Hawkins’s story was my favorite, telling of a lifelong friendship troubled when the young woman decides to marry, and her best friend realizes he’s in love with her. ( )

A wonderful anthology with four stories all equally worth reading and, of course, the witty commentary from Lady Whistledown interspersed within them. (Pay attention and you might notice Lady Whistledown's alter ego has a "walk-on" in a couple of stories!)

I'm torn between two as to which is my favorite--both Julia Quinn's and Karen Hawkins's stories are wonderful. Suzanne Enoch's story comes in a close second. Mia Ryan's story was quite good as well, although I think she glossed over the eviction issue a little too quickly at the end of the story.
