Publisher's Summary

On the eve of the London season, Jane Chance is about to make her entrance into high society. And after a childhood riddled with poverty and hardship, Jane intends to make a good, safe, and sensible marriage. All goes according to plan until a dark, dangerous vagabond helps her rescue a dog.

Zachary Black is all kinds of unsuitable - a former spy, now in disguise, he's wanted for murder. His instructions: to lie low until his name is cleared. But Zach has never followed the rules, and he wants Jane Chance for his own. If that means blazing his way into London society in whatever guise suits him, that's what he'll do.

Jane knows that she shouldn't fall in love with this unreliable if devastatingly attractive rogue. But Zach is determined - and he's a man accustomed to getting what he wants.

    "Pleasant but predictable"

    Third book in an ongoing series, and in my view the weakest of the series, so far. But it's a pleasant enough post-war romantic mystery, set in London 1817. Contents include one sex scene, minimal violence, minimal swearing.

    It was good to see old familiar characters again: Aunt Beatrice and the four Chance sisters, Max, Freddie, the butler Frothby and the footman-cum-bodyguard William. The mutt described in the synopsis played a starring role for a while but then he faded into the background.

    THE SPRING BRIDE was pleasant but predictable. The murder charge somehow never felt like an honest theat, and I frequently felt one step ahead of the plot lines. Emotionally I felt little connection to the lead characters.

    Still, I'm probably going to read book 4 when it's published — Daisy's story.

    I loved Gracie's other series, especially The Perfect Rake and The Perfect Waltz. These two series are similar in many ways, with orphaned or otherwise homeless youth, mangy but loyal animals, "great dame" adoptive aunts, and cast-off servants.

    Narrator Alison Larkin was great, but she portrayed the heroine in a somewhat childlike voice, and she needs to learn how to say "laudanum" if she plans to read more historic novels. Also, the quotes at the beginning of each chapter are annoying. They interrupt the flow of the story, in audio format. I skip such assorted quotes when reading, unless they are highly relevant to the plot.

    "Another winner by Anne Gracie!"

    This story is solid, smooth, and well developed. The characters are our co-workers revisited. If you've read the first two, you will enjoy this one a lot. If not, you will become motivated to get the backstory on Jane. No spoilers, just be aware that the publisher's summary is lame, the book is so much more fun than that!
    This is the same audio performer as the other two, and while she is quite good, and enhances the character's personalities, sometimes she is a bit too syrupy for my tastes. It is still a good thing that there is the consistency of audio performer.

    "a bit lacking"

    compared to the first 2 books I found this one lacking.. might be because the heroine was too young

    "You Cannot Go Wrong With Annie Gracie"

    I loved the story, characters, and the humor. When a story makes me laugh and escape it is special. I enjoyed the performance as well.

    "Immature Heroine!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the first two books from this series both heroines were in their early twenties and mature in experiences and mind that it goes well with their individual plot lines but this story line is so dumb, predictable and already been used so many times by different authors that it's not worth the money to buy it nor keep it.. sorry.. perhaps someone else will say different, but this is my personal take on this book. The author should've made the main female lead grow up like her sister and become more mature, but for obvious reasons only known to the author she didn't, plus this isn't an original plot line..so does that make it more interesting? No....!

    "Great!!!!"

    I certainly enjoyed this book! I have read each of the series so far, and I am impressed - both by the author and the narrator. With each of the books, you are completely drawn into this world, and the character's lives.
    I can't wait for Daisy and Flyn's story!
