    3.5 stars This is a witty, somewhat fluffy British romance written in 1918 There s a meet cute Patricia Brent, a secretary in her twenties, lives in a boarding house with a bunch of rather catty gossips One night she overhears a couple of them snidely commenting on her lack of dates Incensed, she announces that she won t be at dinner the next night she ll be going out to dinner with her fianc It causes a sensation, and Patricia is quite pleased She heads out to have dinner on her own, but she made the mistake of telling them where she was supposed to have dinner When she sees a couple of the worst gossips there watching her, she impulsively finds a man sitting on his own and convinces him to act like he s with her It works like a charm The only problem is, this young man falls for her in the course of their evening, and now he doesn t want to disappear from Patricia s life.Patricia was raised by a man hating aunt, plus this being 1918 she s mortified about the way she and Lord Peter Bowen met Finding out he s a lord somehow makes it even worse In fact, no matter what Peter does, she gets angry with him Could she be mistaking feelings of attraction for anger Hmmm On ...

    A cute romance It s set in the early 1900 s so we have to look past all the sexism Besides you can t smack a fictional character upside the head no matter how much we want I assume the author was trying to bring up her intense pride as a barrier to her romance with the handsome and sweet young lord But he brought her across as a bitch intent on not being made to look ridiculous Most of the humor fell flat but there were a few good scenes Some of the side characters were a bit interesting But no...

    Just what I needed to get out of a reading slump This book was delightful Patricia Brent little knew that when she announced to her nosey neighbors she was engaged, that they would spy on her to see if it was really so Dreading them finding out her lie she grabs the first man in uniform she sees at a restaurant and pulls him into her tale Lieutenant Peter Bowen s interest is peaked by his sudden fiancee , especially when she expects him to forget all about her after their dinner something he has no intention of doing What follows is an amusing account Lord Peter Bowen s attempts to win Patricia, and her determination that it can t be because of their embarrassing meeting When Bowen brings in reinforcements, they plot how to convince PatriciaSpecial thanks to my friend Alisha for recommending this to me I lov...

    I enjoyed this book a great deal despite it showing its age occasionally Written in 1918, it s the story of a woman well on the road to spinsterhood who steps off that road in a fit of pique and catches the eye of a wonderful young man who has a hard time taking no for an answer The story is charming and the characters are fun and dynamic if somewhat idealized in a British classist kind of way.While I had a good time with the book, some markers of the era are telling and a little off putting One of the early chapters, for example, is an exposition heavy background on Patricia that is so very early 20th century Worse, though, is the unthinking misogyny that sneaks in on authorial wings and describes certain unflattering characteristics as essentially feminine This happens frequent enough to be intrusive, though not so often that I found it terribly annoying Interestingly, while Jenkins female characters occasionally fulfill their ascribed roles, they also frequently flout them and in ways that work to refute the author s own narrative assertions which would have been terribly clever if I thought he d done it on purpose In short, while it seems that Jenkins has some unflattering assumptions about female motivations, he s an astute enough observer that his female characters are solid than expected given that bias.Unrelated historical detail It was interesting to stumble upon Herbert Jenkins biogra...

    I really like this book and I have given it five stars because of 1 the humor in witty conversations and funny characters well chosen Circumstances might alter, thrones totter, but Miss Brent s decisions would remain unshaken we women are all as unreasonable as the Income Tax 2 a charming love story She put her cool hands to her hot cheeks, wondering why her heart should show so little regard for her feelings3 the writer s observant eye it is a marvelous social satire4 the way the story which took place in the time at the end of IWW was described I mean, it is new to me that people then could have almost normal life, those times remind me rather of tragedy and sadness Here I have different perspective very interesting experience.This book is engaging, lovely, enjoyable wit...

    I couldn t help but make connections between this Lord Peter and the famous one created by Dorothy Sayers The comparisons were entirely favorable Intelligent, kind, persistent, recognized as different by other members of their class these were some of the qualities that the two Peters share.This book is set during World War I in London Interestingly enough, the war doesn t figure too much into the story, except when it makes a guest appearance near the end.Patricia lives at a boarding house One day she overhears two of her fellow boarders rather catty women gossiping about her and pitying her lonely life She is so irritated by this that at dinner she announces that on the following night she will be dining out with her fianc Her neighbors are shocked, and for a moment she is gratified at having silenced them But then they bombard her with questions, and she rashly invents details about her imaginary fianc By the end of the night she wishes she hadn t done it Not wanting to be found out, she decides to go ahead and dine out the next night But some of her fellow boarders follow her in a taxi to the restaurant these are some seriously pathetic people because they want to know about this man who seems to have appeared out of nowhere.When Patricia realizes she ha...

    I feel like a Scrooge giving this three stars when my friends liked it so much , but the truth is, Patricia annoyed me to the point where I didn t see what Bowen could possibly see in her I think I was taking it all too seriously when it was supposed to be a...
