I really enjoyed this book, it contained two things that is almost always guranteed to make me like a book, a plain Jane heroine and humour. The humour was helped along by a very naughty cat named Sir Reginald and a pair of red silk bloomers two very unusual but entertaining plot devices.
The romance in this is fun and a little sneaky with Ned's mother a famous matchmaker nicknamed the Duchess of Love tries to pair of all the guests in her house party, especially Ned, her middle son, and Ellie. Although it was a little slow as Ned's thick male mind takes a while to realize that Ellie may be the woman for him, it was still entertaining to read, espcially as there were a few secondary romances going on as well.
I would recommend this book, the characters were all very likable, the romance was sweet and it made me laugh. I know can't wait to read the next book in the series.
