If you've been pining for a period romance novel with the sense of humor of Dumb And Dumber, including the fart jokes and toilet humor, this is the book for you! It features an adorably clumsy protagonist who can't tell when she's talking and when she's not, a brooding antihero control freak who shares my confusion about why he doesn't strangle his wife, dogs that suffer from extreme gastrointestinal distress, long conversations that are purposefully ambiguous to enable hilarious misunderstandings, and pages upon pages of characters refusing to take very simple steps to get themselves out of situations that they find upsetting because it's funny if they don't.

If that sounds appealing to you, you will definitely enjoy this book. If not, run away. Run away now.
