Review: Annabelle, the American by Lavinia Kent

Regency England just got real(ity)

Episode 3: Annabelle and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad rumor

Annabelle, Marchioness of Tattingstong, always thought she was a good wife. She’s put up with all the titters and stares in the ballroom that go along with being a rich American married only for her wealth and looks. But, when it’s rumored that her husband has a secret family, one he is using her money to keep, Annabelle may have finally had enough. A proper English wife would grin and bear it, but playing by society’s rules hasn’t worked for her so far.

Will revenge be as sweet as American pie?

Another quick installment of The Real Duchesses of London series by Ms. Kent.  While I liked learning more about Annabelle, the token American heiress, I didn't feel as connected to her or Thomas as I did to the previous duchessess featured.  I also wanted to know more about how and why Mr. Swatts became involved in the publication of the cartoons.  Perhaps these are questions that will be answered as we continue the series.  I am most interested to learn more about Elizabeth and am pleased hers will be the next novella (September 2011).
