Though she’s only 25 years old, Diana Boyle is content to while away her widowhood in peace, but then a sudden onslaught of suitors leads to the outrageous discovery that she was featured in a recent publication listing rich women who might make advantageous marriage matches. Initially affronted by her inclusion, she gathers a group of women in similar circumstances to alert them that they might receive attention from bachelors with dubious intent. Soon, however, the cunning ladies craft a plan to turn the tables and beat the fortune-hunters at their own game. Allain (Miss Latimore’s Letter) presents a compelling, character-driven historical romance. The intimacy level is kissing-only, but there is no shortage of chemistry. Narrator Elizabeth Knowelden gives an expressive performance of the upbeat, engaging story. Her winsome portrayal of the witty women and their escapades yields an enchanting listening experience.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a charming Regency romance about independent, intelligent women and the friendships they forge. Recommended for fans of Julia Quinn, Virginia Heath, and Martha Waters.
