The Merry Lives of Spinsters ~ Review

The Merry Lives of Spinsters
The Spinster Chronicles #1
By Rebecca Connolly

Georgiana Allen is determined to keep foolish young women from ruining their lives either by marriage by ruination or a life of shame by allowing her reputation to be reduced by scandal. Too many a young woman was lost to the momentary fancy of a rake with no consequence to the "gentleman"! Well, Georgie is determined to help out these poor innocents if at all possible and with her friends in the Spinsters (with a capital S, mind you,) she's going to offer what advice she can. The Spinster Chronicles is a much talked about column in the paper. A column that offers advice on social settings, fashion, and the like.

The gentlemen of London society are tired of the interference of the Spinsters when it comes to their entertainment. And it is to this setting that Captain Anthony (Tony to his friends) Sterling returns. HIs younger cousin Hugh begs him to enter the fray and stop these meddling spinsters before they know what has hit them. But upon reading The Spinster Chronicles for himself, Tony makes other plans. He determines to infilter this band of women and discover for himself just what is true and if possible to offer his services to these ladies.

Georgie is suspicious of this captain who happens to offer to join the Spinsters and to be their eyes and ears in society. What follows is a battle of wits and words as Georgie and Tony spar at every meeting but soon both are looking forward to these encounters. But marriage, not a thought on the mind of either. But when Tony's stepmother comes to town, he better be on guard because she's determined to see him married by autumn! And the lady she's chosen for him..., well, Georgie had better watch out or her status as Spinster may soon be at an end.

This is a delightful and fun read as society is tested by a group who should just stick to quiet corners makes its presence known. And known they are. Those who like anything Jane Austen will enjoy this book, which has a mention of her works and is set in the Regency era. This is a clean read and so is appropriate for most readers.

About the Book:
Spinster is as spinster does...
Georgiana Allen is a spinster and everybody knows it. She also happens to be one of the writers for the Spinster Chronicles, and everybody knows that as well. She's accepted her lot in life, and, along with the other spinsters in her circle, takes great pride in the articles she writes and the influence she has. Then Captain Anthony Sterling infiltrates their group, and her life, and Georgie impossibly begins to hope once more.
Tony Sterling had no idea what to expect when he agreed to break up the Spinsters for his cousin, but he certainly did not expect Georgie Allen. From the very first meeting, she upends everything he thought a spinster would be, and her beauty and wit keeps him on edge in thrilling ways. The more he gets to know the Spinsters, the less he wants to break them up. And the more he wants Georgie in his life. Permanently.
