I enjoyed how this novel progressed w/the character development & romance. Instead of Miss Tonks meeting the perfect someone, she learns a bit of confidence in herself while also caring for her niece. The romance is actually between spunky Cassandra, and likable Lord Eston. My one issue was that the plot seemed to JUST KEEP GOING. Each time I thought the book was over, I realized that they hadn't married yet. I still enjoyed it though.
