My Fair Spinster ~ Review with Snippet and Giveaway

My Fair Spinster
Spinster Chronicles #4
By Rebecca Connolly

Grace Morledge is a failure and her father is determined to discover why before it is too late to rectify before all possibilities of marriage are impossible and she is forever a spinster. What he doesn't know is that Grace is a Spinster with a capital "S" and if he should ever discover it...

Aubrey Flint, (aka) Lord Ingram has been acquainted with the Morledge family since Grace was a young girl and in his opinion Grace is perfect. When Grace's father approaches him about examining her for faults or flaws his first reaction is to refuse the request. But when presented with the alternative he agrees so as to save Grace from as much pain as possible.

With help from the Spinsters, Aubrey has a list of things on which to examine Grace for - dancing, talking, socializing, writing... and he is going through the list very carefully. Though he took on this task most reluctantly he soon is having a most enjoyable time of it. After all spending time with such wit, beauty, and perfection is no hardship at all. Now if only he could find some trivial reason that Society's gentlemen have not sought out Grace he would be well pleased.

My Fair Spinster is the fourth book in The Spinster Chronicles and as anyone who has read the previous books knows the Spinsters are a most unusual group of friends who have been drawn together over the years by their lack of gentlemen with whom they have an understanding. Instead of letting their unmarried state define their existence they have embraced it and used their combined voices to guide Society through the printed word. Each Spinster is slowly changing their status but the pass to love is not easy and marked by misunderstandings and potential heartbreak. This offering from Rebecca Connolly is just as much fun to read as the previous three books. And you really should read the previous books to fully appreciate the Spinsters and their antics.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the author with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.

The spinster next door…

Grace Morledge is a failure. Or so her father believes, as she is unmarried despite her advantages. In his mind, Grace must have significant flaws to be a spinster and something must be done about them. To her mortification, he demands she be fully examined and all flaws recorded. And the man he chooses is the worst possible candidate of all. 

Aubrey Flint, Lord Ingram, has known Grace since childhood, but he never anticipated Lord Trenwick demanding he examine her for flaws. How can perfection have faults? Reluctantly, he accepts the assignment and finds far more than he bargained for, and perfection becomes more and more tempting.

“They were smart to include you.”
Grace jerked slightly to look at him again. “What?”
He nodded fervently. “I mean it. Georgie is no fool, Grace, and I have no doubt she made a study of the other unmarried women in Society. You are the best of the lot. It was only natural they should choose you.”
Her heart leapt for joy and seemed to be burning within her. “You don’t know the rest of the lot, Aubrey.”
“Don’t have to,” he quipped. “I know you.”
Oh, but the look in his eyes made her feel like a lovesick girl of twelve again, and it was all she could do to keep from smiling an accompanying lovesick smile that would have been entirely too obvious.
Not that she was lovesick. She was simply touched. And embarrassed. And perhaps a bit feverish.
That was all.
Aubrey blinked and the look was gone. He slapped his thighs and rose fluidly, running a hand through his hair and disheveling it in a way that reminded her of the boy she had known in Derbyshire, and her heart lurched.
“Well, I suppose that’s enough for today,” he rambled, his words not quite as crisp as normal. “I will see you tomorrow at the Sterlings’, and I will assess your interaction with various people at that point.”
Grace slowly rose, watching Aubrey curiously. “Very well. Miranda will be there, you know. We could confront her.”
“Yes, yes, excellent thought,” he replied absently. “I’ll bring my suit of armor for whatever she tosses in retaliation.”
Grace laughed at the image that brought, and Aubrey seemed to shudder at it.
“Right,” he said, turning to her and bowing. “Good day, Grace.”
“Good day, Aubrey.”
He left before she finished, and she stared after him, still curious.
What in the world?
Then her mother crossed the corridor, casting another knowing look at Grace. All curiosity and delight evaporated swiftly, and Grace snapped back into discontent, moving quickly towards the music room.
He was not good for her.
He couldn’t be.
