Great novel!
I enjoyed getting to read Charlotte's story, she was trying to publish her writings and struggled to be in society finding a husband.
Edward was such a gentleman! I already had my suspicions of him when he always helped her!
It was so amusing seeing her struggle in navigating all the society rules and etiquette that she did not have!

The only thing I would say is that I was not to happy in reading this story in a first person point of view. I wished I could have known Edward more.

I've read all of Siri Mitchell's books and this one is the best of all of them. There's a touch of humour in this one.
