This is not one of my favorite Lynn Austin books but it was still good. I love how she bases her plots around real historical events. I love Lynn Austin!

A friend told me I should read this book. So I got it out. When I saw the cover I was kind of wondering what is this all about. I read it and I immediately fell in love with the characters. I laughed all the time when she made up names about everyone. It is a must read!!!!!!

I enjoyed this book for what it is- a light, historical novel with a touch of romance.

I had read this book a few years ago, I got it out by mistake, and starting reading it again, just because it was the only thing around at the time. It was just as enjoyable the second time around. I enjoyed the witty personality, the historical elements masterfully woven into the story of Victoria, her family, and her four suitors.
