An Improbable Season by Rosalyn Eves Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ An absolutely charming story about three cousins who go to London for the season! Thalia is a poet. Charis is a naturalist. And Kalli hopes to find love and fun at the parties. Nothing goes to plan, but the young ladies learn who they are and discover love. I adored every word! A must read for Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer fans. An Improbably Season by Rosalyn Eves Discussion Questions 1.     In what ways is the character’s season “Improbable”? 2.     After Kalli is accidentally “compromised” should she accept the marriage proposal? Is her decision based on her own wishes or the good of the family? 3.     Why do you think Thalia ignores Adam’s advice about Mr. James Darby?

Book Review: Queen Bee by Amalie Howard

Queen Bee by Amalie Howard *Can you find the 5 bees that I added to the graphic?  Amalie Howard has created a delightful mashup of Regency England and a modern high school romance. Her diverse cast is endearing and empowering. Their clothes might be so 1817, but their speech is very modern. One can’t help but root for Ela as she extracts her revenge on the mean girl, “Queen Bee.” Set in the 1810s, the stakes are much higher. Lady Ela loses everything because of Poppy’s lies. Her good name/title. Her home. Her father. She comes to London under a new name and means to make everyone who betrayed her pay—Machiavellian style. Including the marquess who broke her heart. Themes of accountability and forgiveness and weaves seamlessly through the story. This charming historical romcom is the perfect Bridgerton for teens (and adults)!
