Newton Hughes has long dreamed of pursuing a career in law, an acceptable choice for a gentleman of status and wealth. His parents, however, disapprove of his ambition, urging him instead to take his rightful place as a gentleman of leisure—with a suitable wife of their choosing, of course.

Ellie Napper would like nothing more than for her parents to abandon their incessant efforts to marry her off to the greatest possible advantage. Her lack of matrimonial enthusiasm drives her family mad, but she refuses to feign frivolity in order to make herself more palatable to potential suitors.

When Ellie and Newton are introduced through their mutual acquaintance, Charlie Jonquil, they commiserate over their shared plight. In desperation, they hatch a plan: Ellie and Newton will feign an interest in each other—enough to convince their parents not to push them toward unwanted matches but not enough to cause whispers or expectations. Their plot quickly spirals out of control, but the greatest complication is the one they didn’t see coming: their plan never included falling in love.

One response to “The Best-Laid Plans by Sarah M. Eden

    I admit upfront that I love any book that has a Jonquil in it and though this is not Charlie’s book I loved having him in it. Reading this book and seeing the interaction between Artemis and Charlie just makes me more excited to get Charlie’s book.

    And I thoroughly enjoyed Newton and Ellie’s story. What an awful family she has and thank heaven’s Artemis befriends Ellie. I loved Artemis and her group of friends. (Again, looking forward to her book).

    This is a quick read and clean. It has some lovely humor and fun banter and is a lovely way to spend a couple hours reading. While you don’t have to have read the Jonquil or Lancaster series prior to this one, I do think it more fun that way. As this makes reference to a number of characters from those books it is just fun to have an understanding of those characters so I do recommend reading them first. This book will stand alone though.
