The Second Season
By Heather Chapman
Even the perfect match may not be enough to win her heart...
Caroline Hopkins is about to enter her second Season in London and she's not looking forward to it. Caroline prefers the freedom and open spaces of Whitefield Hall to the restrictions of London. The one relief will be leaving behind the Jaspers. Mr. Jasper's attentions to her sister Lucy are becoming unbearable and his mother insufferably arrogant.
Caroline's honest and unguarded comments bring her the attentions of the Duke of Rembridge. Pursuing the Duke is the furthest thing from Caroline's mind, but her mother is determined that this is the match that Caroline was born for.
Determined to protect her daughters from fortune hunters, can Eleanor allow them to follow their hearts? Or is title and wealth the only consideration she will allow?
Get ready to enter the latest season in London - a dangerous scene for the innocent and the unprotected. Broken hearts and ruin are waiting for one misstep or one ill spoken word. Be careful who you trust when your heart is the prize.
The Second Season is more than just Lucy and Caroline's season in London. It is a look at the Hopkins family as a whole and even the changeable nature of their mother. We are given glimpses of the courtship of Eleanor Davenport and Phillip Hopkins which is an important current of influence throughout the story of their own daughters paths to marriage. This is a sweet story and one in which the hopes and dreams of a few are played out for all of society to see. This is also a second chance at discovering the heart's desire.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
