Holiday, best known for contemporary romances like Canadian Boyfriend, turns to Regencies with this first book in an expected series. The hook is three friends, all earls or in line to become earls, who take an annual trip dedicated to relaxation, favorite pursuits, and their devotion to and support for one another. This year their trip is knocked off course when a family friend asks Archibald Fielding-Burton, the Earl of Harcourt, to help save his imperiled daughters Olive and Clementine. Olive has run away with a bounder, and Clem, having been engaged to that same bounder, is hot on her heels. Archie and his buddies Simon and Effie change course and save the women, quickly setting things to rights. All’s well that ends well, but now Archie is back in the company of childhood friend Clem, and it turns out there is a lot more at stake on this trip-gone-awry than Clem’s and Olive’s reputations.
VERDICT Powered by feelings and friendships, rather than plot or pacing, Holiday’s latest deftly sets up a series that shows potential.
