I thought this book was average to be honest. Alice was annoying, constantly trying to set her friend up with a man. Why couldn’t she take Emily at her word and leave her alone? Despite that, the strong friendship between Alice and Emily was evident and well-written. Emily was likeable but she got lost too many times – it became irritating. Archie and Tom were interesting characters, as was the wicked stepmother! In fact, I fou ...more
This was a cute read. The characters were delightfully created and there were plenty of funny moments. I really enjoyed it.

Apart from that, I really liked this book. It's believable, just fluffy enough, has a bit of an old crime being solved, and of course: it has a castle.
With a library AND a suit of armor!
What's not to love? :)
A great fun easy reading book, I loved the characters and the humour, perfect for the beach
A charming book perfect for a lazy summer afternoon or beach holiday read.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was intrigued by the summary and I am happy to report that the book did not disappoint. This was a fun read - and a quick read - that made time fly by.
My younger self (and friend) identify with Emily and Alice, and Francelia sounds just like another friend’s mother-in-law. Emily and Alice rely on and support each other in many ways, as real friends do, and Alice’s insistence on trying to find a boyfriend for Emily is in equal measure annoying and adorable, as are Emily’s reasons for dumpin ...more
