I love historical romances by Katie MacAlister! She has the most engaging writing style that keeps me smiling even when the spunky heroines I am reading about are facing turmoil and tension. Plum is one of those fantastic leading ladies. Even when things are not going as she hoped she's optimistic and I couldn't help but cheer her on knowing if anyone could get just what they wanted it would be her. Lord Harry Rosse is practically perfect with just the right amount of realistic features as to not seem caricature-like. He isn't flawless but he is an ideal match for Plum. the children and the staff kept my eyebrows in a permanently arched state and choking on laughter. It has been a few days since I finished this story and I'm still smiling which is why Katie MacAlister has a permanent spot on my must-read list and should be on yours too.
