My Review: I really enjoyed this romantic novel, Sti did a lovely job bringing all the characters together and setting the scene. In a world full of dating apps do old school dating services still have their place? All that swiping vs face to face meetings. Emma aka Stilts is taking over her mothers business, as she settles into her new life abroad after the loss of her husband. Josh her stepbrother who lovingly calls her Stilts since she isnt very tall. Jane, Josh’s ex and her two friends also feature. There’s some incredibly funny moments, a lovely escape with great relationship ties.
A Season for Love
Can old-fashioned courtship survive in today’s dating world?
When Emma Love’s mother retires, it is time for her to take the reins of the family dating agency and build on its success. And she has a fresh new idea: to host a Jane Austen-style Regency Season of glamourous events where potential lovers can actually take the time to get to know each other in person, with no apps in between.
Emma has no intention of becoming romantically involved herself, of course; she is a matchmaker on the hunt for the perfect partner for ladies like Annie (who thought she had missed her chance at love a long time ago), Jane (recently divorced and nervously stepping into her new life) and wild child Lydia (more interested in hooking up than finding Mr Darcy).
As the Season unfolds, there is only one fly in Emma’s ointment – the irritating Mr Knight, with his casual attitude and gentle cynicism. Why is she allowing him to ruffle her calm, ordered life and why can’t she stop thinking about him? She is far too sensible to take a chance on love – isn’t she?
Jane Austen meets Sophie Kinsella in this laugh-out-loud, captivating romantic comedy.
