Another clever romantic comedy by Joan Smith, featuring a sophisticated Merry Widow and an 'out of his depth' Earl previously betrothed to a shrewish control freak. The story focuses on this love triangle, but also on an array of well drawn and amusing secondary characters. My favorites are the horse-mad younger couple who can speak of nothing but horses; bloodlines, racing, reins, bran mash, and the quality of stable straw. Also interesting was the characters' journey from Bath to Bournemouth ...more

I read a review of this at Dear Author, and since I was in the mood for humor, I downloaded it. I was thinking Georgette Heyer (remember Bath Tangle?)and got something similar, but... It's like when you're really wanting Chocolate Turtle Ice Cream and instead you can only find chocolate frozen. It's similar, but... Overall, light and humorous read. I might read more in the future, but not going to rush to do so.

I enjoyed this story, though, it was rather flat. Only the two main characters had any real depth. The two secondary characters, who drove the plot along, were two dimensional and completely uncharacteristic of what would be expected by their station. I understand that people do have a personality, regardless of their status in nobility, but a duke who dresses in rumpled clothes? There are definite hints of Georgette Heyer.
