My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love that even though this is A new series by Jen Turano it still has the same Laugh out loud comedy mixed in with a great love story!! This is a short and sweet novella and I love the introduction to the Wallflower section of the ballroom, and that not only do we get to see Wilhelmina’s story but we’re introduced to other ladies who will be in the next books…and I love that the unspoken rules of the wallflowers is shattered by these ladies!!
I can’t wait for Permilia’s story!!
After Miss Wilhelmina Radcliff’s father lost the family fortune in a poor investment decision, she finds herself banished from the fashionable set within New York society and directly into the wallflower section. Taking on work as a social secretary in order to help with family expenses, she spends her time penning out invitations to all the most sought-after events, wondering if her life will ever improve.
While languishing one evening at a ball given by one of the esteemed New York patriarchs, Wilhelmina is appalled to discover that Mr. Edgar Wanamaker, her oldest and dearest friend, and the first gentleman to offer her a marriage proposal, has shown up at the ball unexpectedly, having been absent from New York ever since she rejected his offer years before.
