I honestly wasn't expecting much from this book I have read Doyle's previous two Leland sister books and they were OK but a little disappointing to me No disappointment with this book though I loved Sophie Parthenope Amelie and Peregrine I loved the friendships between Amelie and Sophie and Parthenope and Sophie I thought the romance between Sophie and Peregrine was perfectly donesweet and believable and not rushed It's a lovely fun book that brought to mind Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot And although this is technically a preuel to Doyle's other two Leland sister books Bewitching Season and Betraying Season it stands perfectly well on its own In fact it took me awhile to even figure out what the connection was Definitely recommended to readers who want a little Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer plus magic
