Glamour is a lady-like talent just like art, music and good conversation. Jane excels at glamour but her sister Melody is the pretty one who gets all the attention. Set in an Austen-like world with magic, this story explores the life of these two sisters.

Why I picked it up: The cover fooled me, and I avoided it for a couple of years. It wasn't until I saw the covers for Glamour in Glass and Without a Summer and realized that they were in the same series that I checked out this book.

Why I finished it: This was a delightful romp, paying attention to correct behavior and the stirrings of first love. And it was a reminder of how important the cover can be on your selection of a book.
