And now to a 2nd opinion review. Carole reviewed this book on my blog here, and then I read it and wanted to review it too ;)
It's 1839, and Lord Eglinton's tournament in Scotland is the most anticipated event of the year: He and some of his noble friends will don medieval armor and joust like knights of old. Does this mean a revival of true chivalry? Miss Florence Marsh thinks it might. Or is the tournament mere tomfoolery and the greatest folly of the century? Mr. Robert Beaton thinks it is. But when Flo and Robbie meet at Eglinton Park, they'll soon learn that a dash of romance can make the greatest differences look rather small and that true love might find you in the most unlikely place. If only Robbie wasn't working for that scandalous new magazine Allan's Miscellany! If only Flo's father didn't detest the periodical press! And if only they had remembered to bring an umbrella!
I have to agree with Carole R who has been reviewing Schwab's books on my blog (and her own) that these books are dang cute. So freaking cute. You just get happy by reading :)
It's a short novella. Florence, our heroine goes to Scotland with her dad to watch quite the show. There she meets Robert and with a glance, and with a laugh and smirk they start to talk to each other. And then talk some more. It's not insta love. They just really find each other's company pleasant. She is witty, he is funny, she is smart, he is an artist. And they decide to give this a chance, because you never know if you do not decide to get to know one another better.
So...cute? Yes. They way they talked, that was it. They just talked and laughed but it was so natural. They were quite adorable together, and they will fit each other well.
I'd totally read more. Light, fun and most of all cute!
