The Perks of Loving a Wallflower

The saga of a group of quirky orphans adopted by a foreign baron continues in delightful fashion in this second book of Ridley’s “Wild Wynchesters” series (after The Duke Heist). Tommy, who is excellent at disguising herself, takes on the mantle of the baron’s reclusive and handsome heir, to help bluestocking heiress Philippa find a groom that meets her parents’ approval and correct an injustice. As the two women work together, their feelings for each other grow and make their lives increasingly complicated. The cute central romance is propped up by fantastic side characters, particularly the other Wynchesters (readers will hope to see the siblings get their own happily-ever-afters) and a cat named Tiglet who steals the show and furthers the plot.
VERDICT This clever novel will delight readers looking for queer historical romances and or a series featuring a group of unconventional romantic leads.
