Cute, fluffier than fluff book about a twenty-something woman who returns to the London finishing school she grew up in to save it from certain ruin. The setting is unique and the helpful hints sprinkled throughout are good fun. The writing is crisp and fast-paced. I found the four current students annoying but that is clearly the point. Unfortunately, it just meant that all four blended together and not a one stood out. I did not enjoy any scene where they were displayed prominently and wish there’d been a little more variation between them aside from looks. This is predictable in a way that chick lit books are, which means they always end the way you want them to. Although the big “reveal” at the end was kind of flat and pointless. All in, a fun book to read when you’re feeling like something light.
