THE LADY MOST LIKELY…by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway
12/10 - HarperCollins Publishers - Mass Market Paperback – 384 pages

Great concept with with consistent twists to keep the reader interested.

In this corner we have Hugh Theodore Dunne, earl of Briarly who is in need of a wife to produce an heir. In the other corner you have Hugh’s sisters ready to make this happen and devising a list of prospective candidates. Which leave two other corners of potential women of merit who can become his wife with each of them having their own story to tell.

Lady Georgina Sorrell is a widow who plans to stay that way until she meets the match of love she has searched for. Gwendolyn Passmore who is the stunningly beautiful belle of the Ton and the envy of every eligible female. Lastly there is Miss Katherine Petyon who tries to hard to be everything everyone wants and displays her displeasure with a flair for the dramatic this side of diva.

Hugh was to pick a wife based on their qualities that most match his beloved horses in that they are strong, reliable and willing to be tamed. He has friends who provide other advise and in fact move in on his potential candidates while Hugh is concerning himself with which horse is the best match for a race instead of wooing his potential brides.

A house party was never this much fun before and trying to see at the end of each story who will be left standing is fascinating.

This book is fun and the stories so entertaining and well written you find it hard to believe this was not written by one author instead of three. The chapters continue with a consistent theme and ensure the reader can keep the ebb and flow of the stories. While some parts may seem a little too well revealed this book regardless is so charming and the characters endearing you will soon forget any small flaws.

Joanna Aislinn Hi Mary,

I find anything with Eloisa James makes me want to read certain parts again and again, until I can almost recite the passages myself. Thanks for sharing your take on this one!
