In this highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, Felicity Montague must use all her womanly wits and wiles to achieve her dreams of becoming a doctor--even if she has to scheme her way across Europe to do it. A must-have for fans of Mackenzi Lee's extraordinary and Stonewall Honor-winning novel. A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind--avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science. But then a window of opportunity opens--a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes if she could meet this man he could change her future, but she has no money of her own to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity's way, so long as she's allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid. In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl's true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.… (more)

Loved this. I liked Felicity’s voice and that there was real girl power in this story. When I thought I knew where Felicity’s story was going once she decided to pursue a position with Platt, I imagined the standard plot of smart, serious girl vs. pretty, flaky girl, and I wasn’t excited at all. What I got was so much better.
I love Mackenzi Lee’s sense of humor, but even more than that, I love that her characters have enough complexity that you can see them grow, you can see the layers peel away as the story progresses.
This one was a page-turner as much as the first was, and I have high hopes of spending time with the Montagues and their friends again. ( )

I loved this adventure so much! I love how much research and care was put into these characters and details. It is wonderful to see a good relationship/friendships. ( )

Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

This books was a bit better than the first. I found the story and characters more enjoyable. There were some twists I didn't expect, and the plot captured my attention moreso in this novel than the last. ( )

This book was nothing like I expected. The new characters that I met are now so precious to me that I would commit arson if anyone even thought of hurting them. I also got more stories from my previous favorites so that was welcomed. I truly liked this book because it was a plot with like a little bit of romance hinted throughout, while the first book was romance with plot. I enjoyed both very much but I loved my baddies in this story. I highly recommend this book. I can't wait to read more of these adventures. ( )

Don't tell me women

For Janell, who would have loved this.
