This book is set in the early 19th century England, specifically London. The main character, Kitty Charling is put in a predicament by her adoptive father. She is to inherit his fortune, but only if she marries one of his nephews of her chosing. Her choice seems to be Jack, for she has had feelings for him, but he has not offered for her. In order to get to London her and another nephew, Freddy say they are engaged, but she has another plan in works. 

This is my first experience with this type of novel. The writing is witty, quick, and mostly dialogue. I liked the quick pace and the charming story. It's a very light hearted and easy read, and it will definitely make you feel good.

The problems I had with it were some of the dialogues and how they were written; they just weren't in the style that I liked. I felt some of the characters spoke in odd ways and some parts of the novel were boring.

But I recognize this would be a great and fun read for people who like this type of novel. In this case I do recommend it. But if you're like me, and like more traditional or regular style of book, then you might not enjoy the story enough to overlook the style.
