I’ve been a fan of Jen Turano’s regency romances for quite a while now, but this is the first time I listened to it on audiobook. WHAT A DELIGHT!! The narrator brought these characters to life so well.
I absolutely love a feisty heroine and Gwendolyn Brinley is one such terrifying lady – in a good way.
Whether in the ballroom or fishing with the children, she is right at home and being who she needs to be. But perhaps, in this story, she finds a renewed purpose than what she’d thought at first. Her match-making skills are put to the test and this delightful story will have you giggling along with the antics that occur.
Poor Walter! He becomes a better father because of it all and you’ll see why when you read this heartwarming, smile-inducing story.
This one is full of heart!
I listened to the audiobook from my local library, my opinion is my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Miss Gwendolyn Brinley accepted a temporary paid companion position for the Newport summer season, believing it would be a lark to spend the summer in America’s most exclusive town. She suddenly finds her summer turning anything but amusing when her employer expects her to take over responsibilities as an assistant matchmaker. Tasked with the daunting prospect of attaining advantageous matches for her clients, Gwendolyn soon finds herself in the employ of Mr. Walter Townsend, the catch of the Season, but a gentleman Gwendolyn finds beyond irritating.
Walter Townsend is reluctantly in search of a wife for the sake of his unruly motherless children who cannot keep a governess for long. What he wasn’t expecting was Miss Brinley, an amateur matchmaker who turns his quest for a new wife into a complete and utter debacle. Constantly besieged by society ladies on a mission to win his affection, Walter must find a way to overcome their inundating attention–and his unexpected attraction toward Gwendolyn.
The more time they spend together throughout the Newport Season, the harder it is for Gwendolyn to find Walter a wife when she realizes his perfect match might be . . . her.
