  1. What I liked The relationship that built up between the h h He was very loving and caring which she needed from her abusive family history I liked her relationship with her cousins I am looking forward to their stories.What I didn t like Her abusive history It was a bit hard to read about her past.


  2. 3.5 starsA book that walks a tough line Regency romance but with a social issues twist Catie might be the oldest, but her sister Elizabeth Lizzy has always been the darling Their father is a second son, a drunk, and a man who uses his fists He beats Catie, locks her up in a small closet with spiders and vermine, and mocks her whenever it suits him And it suits him often Her younger sister Lizzy is as much a tormentor as her father it gives Lizzy great joy to tattle on Catie and to be her warden [...]


  3. My favorite book okay one of my favorites UI love this book and author I re read this all the time and especially when I need cheering up The scene with the sister in the bushes is priceless and Lord Valentine is swoonworthy But the true stars of this book are the Spinsters Club members especially Catie If I were a heroine I would want to be her The whole series is excellent A definite friend on my keeper shelf.


  4. At the risk of sounding insensitive, I think the fact that the heroine, Catherine, was abused by her family, was the best thing going for this story Everything else was just too over the top and painfully unrealistic that I lost interest in the story.Catherine had a legit reason for not marrying, seeing the risk of marrying a man like her father, a worse evil than being under his thumb forever Her sister, is also a pain, who has managed to make the suffering with her family even tragic Somehow, [...]


  5. 3 I re read this, because I couldn t remember it at all but I like the author, and I wanted to check out later books in the series.Okay, so It wasn t bad But it was a bit flippant with Catie s recovery she just seemed to snap out of a lifetime of abuse And then after her miraculous recovery, it felt very cheeseball Lots of melodramatic why oh why can t he just stop trying to help poor suffering people in his career, and be happy with me instead It was selfish and petty, and it felt very thin to [...]


  6. Great story of betrayal and loveThis was a beautiful story of finding love in the most unexpected ways Catherine had endured years of abuse at the hands of her father and the ultimate betrayal when he married her off She is torn between her dislike of men and the growing attraction to her husband Quint was betrothed to Catherine s sister and was shocked at what had transpired on his wedding day Torn between his political aspirations and the feelings he was developing for his wife Quint had some [...]


  7. As usual Ms Galen did not let me down Her books are always filled with a vivid picture of history, well developed characters and the tortured romance one comes to expect From the initial meeting of Lord Valentine and Catie the reader gets the sense of their chemistry though the two obviously are in denial With each new contact you route for the two to find the happiness they deserve and after their marriage your heart will go out to Lord Valentine as he tries to woe his wife to his bed and into [...]



  8. Entertaining to read, but a bit too melodramatic.Catie s abusive past was pretty well handled, and her reactions to it being mistrustful, acting out even with the expectation of receiving abuse were well written and believable Quint Was a pretty forgettable character and outside of him being non abusive, I didn t much like him He was completely obsessed with his political career, which made him seem a little bit interesting than he actually was All of his supposed kindness and generosity was r [...]


  9. DNF Could not get past the premise of getting them married Just couldn t get past it Ridiculous


  10. 3.75 STARS The story itself was good However, at one point, I just didn t enjoy reading about Catherine There s either the complaining how she doesn t want to marry Quint, thinking that Quint wants Elizabeth her sister , she wants to runaway from this loveless marriage, or that she was scare though she won t admit it of meeting new people and of course Quint himself thinking that he ll punish her, hit her, lock her, etc.At first, all these problems that was wrong with her and how she acts was fi [...]


  11. I ve read a few of Galen s later books The Making of a Duchess and The Making of a Rogue and liked them a lot better than this one This is an earlier book and it definitely felt rough the characters didn t feel as rich and fleshed out and things happened just to happen, not because there was any true character motivation to them For example, the end of the book has a scene view spoiler where the heroine upturns the punch bowl amusing and well deserved, though it was But I didn t feel that the he [...]


  12. Firstly I want to say that overall I really enjoyed this book At first I wasn t so sure I am a big fan of SG s writing and I have read all of her newer books It was quite easy to tell this was one of her first It started out a little silly and girly and threw me a bit As it fleshed out, the book grew on me and I liked the romance and the interaction between characters There a 3 other books in the series all about Catherine s friends and I am now looking forward to reading them This book did feel [...]


  13. Quint was good but not great He had his hands full dealing with a woman who has been physically and psychologically bullied by her father and younger sister Even her mother never defended her She is alone except for her three cousins who are outstanding in their loyalty and personalities.Catherine, Catie, held up well considering the abuse she d grown used to I did not sense any martyrdom syndrome so I found myself clearly in her corner.Alas, for all that I found the story a bit dull I did not f [...]


  14. A lovely story about Catherine, a Cinderella like girl who is abused by her family Because if that abuse she has sworn never to marry until her father forces her into marriage with her sister s fianc , Lord Valentine I really liked the way Catherine and Quint s relationship develops as the story unfolds The learn to trust and respect each other and the attraction they tried to deny While not a great book, I still found it entertaining, especially Catherine s cousins I look forward to reading the [...]


  15. This book has quick scenes of major cruelty, and OH MY FREAKING GAWD I ve never wanted to choke someone as hard as the little sister, who unf shares my name Quint is a twat from the get go, but eventually stops thinking I shoulda married the prettier sister If you can resist throwing the book or ereader, it ends well, though little b tch girl never gets her propers Seriously, even at seven she is VILE So much so that even with a good ending, I still want nothing than to choke a fictional charac [...]


  16. I have to say that I liked the concept Shana Galen was working with here and also a number of the interchanges that took place While the general story had a lot of potential, though, the execution was very clumsy and unfinished Key plot points were rushed, a lot of the action was slip shod, and the attraction between Valentine and Catie was not very well presented I would like to read a re write of this when Shana reaches a experienced point in her career as an author.


  17. Great Book.I really enjoyed reading this book I enjoy her books because they always have history mixed in the story and they are just fun to read The characters are likeable and interesting For me this book kept my interest and I had a hard time putting it down I would recommend this book to everyone.Thank You Shana Galen for an enjoyable book to read.


  18. This was suppose to be a Quartet but something happened not sure what and the fourth book is on hold possibly permanently Fortunately the way the 3rd one ends you are not left with a major feeling of disappointment at knowing what happens next because you have a very real sense of the final Heroine s happily ever after If its ever published its a definite buy IMO.


  19. I love Shana Galen s writing and this is one of her best It s the first book in her Misadventures in Matrimony series so I recommend reading in order The series follows the romantic happy endings of childhood cousins For my full review bit 1cg0ZnM


  20. I loved this book so much that I couldn t put it down The only problem I had with the book is Ms Galen didn t explain why Catherine s father hated her so much I think the reason I liked this book is that it dealt with abuse by a parent, which alot of books don t deal with.


  21. An eligible man is tricked into marrying the non favored sister and they both find love in it I didn t like the way that the girls, Catie and her cousins, were always trying to escape their problems, and coming up with cockamamie ideas to get out of trouble.


  22. While this sort of book isn t usually my thing, I picked this up because my cousin is the author and I wanted to sample her writing I enjoyed the book, but I was also reminded why I don t read much romance.


  23. The description of this book is extremely deceiving Nowhere do you see anything about the physical and emotional abuse that the protagonist Catie goes through It was very disturbing to me and is the reason I m choosing not to finish this book.


  24. Come on, who can believe the wedding could happen that way Author lost me there, but I finished the book Only wanted to stick around and see the father and sister get their comeuppance, but that was disappointing as well.


  25. A pleasant story Weak writing, a rather ridiculous plot, irregular character development Truly a very average book.



  26. I read this book when it first came out a few years ago Nice story and characters On reading it again, I felt it was a little dated Still a good story though, and enjoyed reading it once



  27. I really liked the relationship that built up between the h h He was very loving and caring which she needed from her abusive family history.
