Five minutes into Miss Eugenia Talbot’s presentation at court, notorious rogue Mr. William Grant made her laugh, ruining her debut. To hush up the scandal, Eugenia’s aunt hires a matchmaker to quickly find a suitor— anyone except the infamous William Grant—to help restore Eugenia’s reputation. But amiable Eugenia shows a disturbing tendency to follow her heart, and is again caught in the company of notorious Grant. When a traitor creeps closer, threatening to ruin more than just Eugenia’s reputation, her kindheartedness may be her ultimate undoing…

One of the perks of working at the county library is having access to advanced reader copies. Every so often, a cart of ARCs will be placed in the lunchroom for us to pick through at our leisure. Needless to say, by the end of the day said cart is bare. Lucky for me, during my first month of work I was able to snag quite a few advanced reader copies, including A Wedding in Springtime by Amanda Forester. While I am not normally a huge fan of historical romance, this one captured my interest simply because of its lovely cover. And while it is true that you cannot judge a book by its cover, I found this to be a delightful read nonetheless.

This was a fun read. Debutante Miss Eugenia Talbot is a fascinating character and her social faux pas sets in motion a grand love affair with one Mr. William Grant. After making her laugh at the most inappropriate moment, Eugenia finds herself with a ruined reputation and is forced to search for a husband on her own. She seeks the assistance of William Grant but he finds that he has no interest in helping her find another man. He has already been captivated by her kind heart and wonderful sense of humor.

The plot to this book is original and fun. One truly feels as if they are in London during the spring of 1810. The tagline of A Wedding in Springtime says it all: Mischief and weddings are the perfect mix. Readers will surely agree with this statement the moment that they delve into this scandalous read.

Chrissy fell in love with books at an early age. It all started with Judi Barrett’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. At the tender age of five she decided that she wanted to be a writer. Later, she graduated to books like A Wrinkle in Time, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and the Goosebumps series, participating avidly in her school’s Book It program. High school brought on new challenges and loves. She began writing for the school’s newspaper and literary magazine. The works of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Shirley Jackson quickly overran her bookshelves. But when Chrissy was introduced to the world of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, a grand love affair was set in motion. She is an avid reader of romance, urban fantasy, horror, erotica, and cozy mysteries. After working for the city library for six years and being surrounded by the works of greatly admired authors, she decided to devote her life to writing full time and hasn’t looked back since. When she is not devouring book after book, Chrissy loves to cook, bake, volunteer at the local animal shelter, and feed her addiction for horror movies. She lives in Maryland with her family and beloved pets.
