One Minute Book Review: Do You Want To Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare

Do You Want to Start a Scandal (Spindle Cove, #5; Castles Ever After, #4)

The Summary:

Charlotte Highwood’s mother is determined to marry her off to a gentleman of the highest rank. Charlotte Highwood is in no way the Desperate Debutante the press has made her out to be, which is what she wants to assure Lord Granville of. Which is why she was in the room with him to begin with when the mystery lovers entered and did their dirty deed. But, of course, no one believes her! So she must discover the identity of the mystery lovers before she is forced to marry the cool, proper, and annoyingly handsome Lord Granville. Can she find the mystery lovers? Or will she be relegated to fate she can’t stand?

What I Liked:

I’m gonna be honest: I love me some Tessa Dare. Ever since I read Romancing the Duke earlier this year, I have been a fan. She has a good sense of humor, and her books are so light and lovely. You feel good after reading one, and you don’t feel all angsty during it. It’s just a feel good romance, which is what I come to her for.

What I Didn’t Like:

So, there’s not much I don’t like about Tessa Dare’s books. However, if you’re coming for a hard and fast historical… appropriateness, you may be annoyed to find that she definitely writes with modern sensibilities. I think it’s funny and charming, but someone who insists on historical correctness may not.


I like it, but then again, I don’t think you can go wrong with Tessa Dare. If you want a light, funny historical that’s going to leave you feeling good, then read her.
