A bit implausible, the plot is more Victorian than Regency. Still a solid light read.

Sophie is a fun character, abandoned at the altar and forced to make a new life in London. She ends up writing about weddings for a living and has no romantic prospects in view.

She accidentally runs into a Mr. Brandon, thinks he's delightful and hopes to see him again. Well, she does, but now he's a duke and she's reporting on his wedding.

Wonderful characters, especially the mothers for the wedding. Good character development for Sophie and the Duke. Plot is fine, a bit madcap. ( )

About halfway through I had to speed read just to plow through. Could really have ended halfway throughout th the book as the second half was just super repetitive dithering. Also filled with stupid capitalization about an Awful Truth, and toward the end "we need to have a Serious Discussion" and "it was a Noble Sacrifice." Please. How pretentious. Just shut up already. Also, saw the Awful Secret coming from a mile away. Ugh. ( )

Really liked this book! Haven't read anything by this author before, but I'm wanting to look more into her books now. The heroine verged on obnoxiously head-in-the-sky at times, but it came off as sweet and endearing. The hero was similarly dense, but still adorable. Wasn't sure how exactly it was all going to resolve until the end, which was also a huge plus. ( )
