So, I have been low on books lately, so I stole one of my moms books… and I actually enjoyed it! The book is romantic but it’s funny romance! And I LOVE reading funny romance! (Honestly, I really dislike any romance but this one was ok, cause the girl in the book was hilarious!!!)

The book was really good and I loved it sooooooo much I read the rest of the series. All of the books are very appropriate, but I don’t think younger girls would want to read them. They are not inappropriate, but I think these books are supposed to be for older girls.

Over all, I loved this book and I totally suggest it to teens and adults. (But I don’t think boys would enjoy it… sorry!)


  • Funny, very enjoyable romance


  • For older girls and women.

Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day she can open up a shop selling refashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. Unfortunately, when an errand for her millinery shop job goes sadly awry due to a difficult customer, she finds herself out of an income.

Mr. Oliver Addleshaw is on the verge of his biggest business deal yet when he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and wed. When Oliver witnesses his ex not-quite-fiance cause the hapless Harriet to lose her job, he tries to make it up to her by enlisting her help in making a good impression on his business partner.

Harriet quickly finds her love of fashion can’t make her fashionable. She’ll never truly fit into Oliver’s world, but just as she’s ready to call off the fake relationship, fancy dinners, and elegant balls, a threat from her past forces both Oliver and Harriet to discover that love can come in the most surprising packages.
