A group of unconventional women band together and declare their independence in this new series by Caldwell (“Wicked Wallflowers” series). Lady Sylvia Elton is eager to escape the control of her philandering late husband’s detestable family. Taking her son, she sets up house in London with a pair of like-minded ladies intent on living by their own rules. Soon they attract more women who chafe at society’s constraints, and the next thing she knows, Sylvia is president of the infamous new Mismatch Society. Their mission, above all, is to avoid marriage. The Society soon becomes fodder for gossip, and the bachelors of London are up in arms. To infiltrate the Society, the men send in Clayton Kearsley, Viscount St. John, a perfectly agreeable gentleman and the best friend of Sylvia’s late husband. Yes, Clayton has been in love with Sylvia forever, and yes, his traitorous sisters have already joined the Society, but Clayton is sure he can make this lovely widow change her mind about marriage.
VERDICT Humorous, tender, and altogether fun, Caldwell’s latest will have wide appeal among romance readers.
