Book Review: Keeping the Castle by Patricia Kindl


Seventeen-year-old Althea is the sole support of her entire family, and she must marry well. But there are few wealthy suitors--or suitors of any kind--in their small Yorkshire town of Lesser Hoo. Then, the young and attractive (and very rich) Lord Boring arrives, and Althea sets her plans in motion. There's only one problem; his friend and business manager Mr. Fredericks keeps getting in the way. And, as it turns out, Fredericks has his own set of plans...

Charming and cute - a pleasant trifle with witty observations.  Pride & Prejudice Lite.  I was having a very bad afternoon and after a couple hours with this book, I was in a happy mood again. Made me smile and laugh.  The reader knows how it will end but the journey is worth it.  The romantic denouement was not unexpected but ***SPOILER ALERT*** the two lovebirds spend most of their time vehemently disagreeing, which left me unconvinced of their future happiness.
