Lady Ludmilla's Accidental Letter ~ Review

Lady Ludmilla's Accidental Letter
Merry Spinsters, Charming Rogues #1
By Sofi Laporte

Lu has been living as her aunt's companion since the death of her parents. Her long-ago season in London was a disaster that she blames entirely on Adrian St. Addington. She's given up on being anything but a spinster, spending her days in a closed-up house with her Great Aunt Mildred and letters from her secret friend Addy. Her correspondence with Addy started by accident when a letter to a friend went to the address's newest resident rather than its former. Correspondence with a man was a social no-no but Lu was not willing to give it up. And that her correspondence was with a man she had never met was even more shocking but she longed for more than a shut-in existence. What she never expected was an opportunity to actually meet Addy face-to-face.

His correspondence with a most intriguing lady has filled his days with something delightful. Unsure of her true identity, Madame "Lu" has helped him get through the last three years. But a chance to actually meet her is something he is unsure of. Could Lu want to know him if she knew who he really was? Highly doubtful with his reputation.

But what neither is aware of is that there is an incident in their past that has linked them together though no one is aware of it. Could the past destroy what was a perfectly lovely friendship by correspondence? Or could they have something more?

Lady Ludmilla's Accidental Letter is a delightful Regency read that is not to be missed. I love how Lu changes as the story progresses and how her growth helps those around her as well. There is an interesting situation as to who Addy is and as the story progresses it is even more interesting to see what a tangle results. 

This is the first book in what I hope will be a most enjoyable series Merry Spinsters, Charming Rogues. I love the idea of an accidental letter leading to a friendship that would not have been and that it was also the catalyst for a potential happily-ever-after. This is the kind of book you want to have on hand when you are having a down day because it will leave you with more than one smile on your face as you read through it. 

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

About the Book:
Lady Ludmilla Windmere, spinster extraordinaire, has a dilemma. She has fallen in love with her best friend, and that cannot be. The problem? She hasn’t met him. Not once. For they have only ever corresponded by letter. When she sets out to uncover the identity of her secret correspondent, her world shatters. For Addy turns out to be none other but London’s worst hellrake.

Adrian St.Addington, hellrake extraordinaire, has a problem. He is developing a marked tendre for a spinster, and that cannot be. The problem? He suspects she is taking him for someone he is not. Or is it that she knows precisely who he is? Either possibility he finds profoundly disturbing. For he has a role to uphold, cost what may. And a depraved heart like his surely cannot fall in love…least of all with a plain, outspoken spinster.

Determined to discover the truth behind the man she loves, Lu does what she does best: she sits down and writes a letter…

Escape into the world of the Regency ton with Sofi Laporte's new series, where spinsters are merry, rakes are charming, and no one is who they seem.
