SPOILER ALERT: I love this series however I couldn't like Penelope. I greatly enjoy Willig's writing style and have enjoyed all of her heroines except Penelope. Penelope is ungrateful and spoiled. She asks for trouble and guess what, she ends up married to someone who doesn't love her and who cheats on her. Now, women can openly have sexual relationships but during regency England, women of a certain standing could not. Whether it was fair or not, Penelope knew that behaving in such a manner could result in much more worse situations than being forced to marry a gentleman. She is rude to numerous people who care about her and is stubborn beyond belief. One of her only redeeming actions is when she mourns Freddy (even though he was a cheating louse). I still kind of believe Alex was too good for her.
