The Season

The Season - Sarah MacLean I picked this book up purely for the fact that it was a regency aimed at a teenage audience. I was curious, but also didn't have much hope. I had just finished The Luxe a few days before and was expecting another fashion, backstabbing, frenemie, based book loosely woven around a thin plot. I was pleasantly surprised. The Season is a well written, interesting story for those who might be taking their first step into the regency world, but aren't sure if they're ready for the likes of Jane Austen or the romances of Georgette Heyer. The plot had some weaknesses, namely being that the mystery was very loosely woven and felt rushed at the end. Much of the book was predictable, but the story was still a fun read.If you're looking for the greatest novel of our century then of course you won't be interested, but if you're looking for an enjoyable romp with innocent first love, a pinch of mystery, and a whole bunch of regency this is a good book for you.
