light and entertaining, but ...

by GoluxGirl on Mar 11, 2009

MacLean plays a little fast and loose with historical details. It's obvious she's very well-versed in the Regency time period, substituting workable modern phrases or descriptions for esoteric terms without getting in the way of the flow of prose. But, she seems to be using the era as a veneer rather than an actual setting. Notice how the girls on the front cover actually look terribly modern, like they're about to go to prom rather than to Almacks? Yeah, the whole book is kinda like that, a high school senior prom story in fancy historical dress. MacLean does a good job of giving her characters individual voice, and the plot develops like any good historical romance. But the mystery is pretty superficial, book-ending the real plot without disturbing the characters or causing the reader any alarm. Overall, a fun read, light and breezily romantic. Not heavy on all the historical accuracies, but I'm kind of a Regency snob so fell free to take that with a grain of salt.
