Miss Cresswell's London Triumph
Freddie and Ned return from success in India causing a sensation and Cassie can hardly believe how grown-up and full of finesse her old pal Ned is, nor how handsome he has become. Cassie, Freddie and Ned's former childhood playmate Arabella Taylor is the belle of the ton and determined to have Ned by her side. Ned happily plays Arabella's game, using his new found skills to flirt and charm the lady, which annoys Cassie. Cassie believes she dislikes the Season and all London Society and what it stands for.
She longs for the carefree days of childhood until, like her sister, she receives help from her nearest and dearest to realize her feelings and bring her to the notice of a certain gentleman. Cassie is an admirable character and I liked her and what she stood for and happy that she was appreciated for her mind before her beauty.
Frances is unfortunately too busy to appear in much of the novel and instead the reader is subjected to her rambunctious five-year-old-son who speaks with a lisp. I think the author made some mistakes in titles and inheritance which need to be overlooked in order to follow the plot. This sequel is worth a read to find out what happens next, but otherwise is slow moving and almost identical to The Education of Lady Frances.
Mar 07, Griffinyarn rated it it was ok. Reading this book was a bit of an endurance run There was very little romance - both hero and heroine were frustratingly obtuse about their feelings - and there was a lot of verbose "telling" at the expense of the dialogue. I also don't know why you would let a duck have the run of a London townhouse - as far as I know, they're not toilet-trained.
May 03, Liz rated it really liked it Shelves: We have a vivacious and intelligent heroine who has been friends with the hero for a long time, and neither realise they are the one for the other until after various escapades and intrigues. So Cassie would have to learn something new to outwit the little enchantress.
