Publisher's Summary

Behind every little secret....

Mary Hamilton has had enough of being passed over by all of the eligible men in London, though she's had years and years of practice, and she's ready to give it up. But before she hangs up her dancing shoes for good, she wants one season of everything she's never had - invitations, flirtation, and suitors. But will all of that actually give her what she's always secretly wanted?

There's another secret waiting....

Geoffrey Harris is more than happy to spend his time being permanent escort to Mary during her final season in London. After all, she's been his best friend for years, and what better way to send her off than in grand style? But when her plan actually starts to work, he isn't so sure he wants any part of it, leaving him to wonder what it is he does want. Or who.

Sweet and clean

I enjoy friends to lovers stories and this is a nice, clean one. She's not quite a blue stocking who gets a makeover and almost lies herself. However, her handsome best friend and sister inevitably keep her grounded and we get a HEA that's just right.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Once again, the author did not disappoint. I loved the banter, humor, impatience, rage, heartache, turmoil, devition of friendship, and love that ran through this entire book. The narrator did a phenomenal job at remembering the tone and rhythm she assigned characters from books past. Beautiful story.

Soooo Booooooring

I would get bored and realize that chapters had passed. It never got to the central action. Stopped with 4 hours to go and it still hadn’t gotten to any appreciable point.

First two books in this series are so much better

Have you ever suffered through an audible book thinking “it must get better?” Save yourself the mental calculus. This book does not get better. I very much enjoyed the first two books in this series but this one was a dull.

A well-written book!

I have not found any well-written Regency Romances in many years. "Secrets of a Spinster" by Rebecca Connolly came as a surprise for me. The book was well-written, had an interesting plot, was not too simple, and not easily anticipated. The characters were well developed, interesting, and fun. The narration was very well done. I am going to get another book by Rebecca Connolly hoping it is as well done as this one!

about 3 hours too long

Not the best nor the worst; the performance was ok. A few too many characters to really develop the story.

Corny

This book is so corny. The hero and the heron are best friends and their little banter back and forth is extremely corny.

Good, but not my favorite...

Good, but not my favorite so far of this series. The heroine acts completely out of character in the middle of the story. During that portion of the book it was all I could do to listen, to get to the “good” part, because she grated on my nerves! Other than that it ended well and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

Love the hero and heroine

I wanted to finish this. I really did. The characters were so likable and the story line was interesting, but the etiquette and pure ness of the English people was too much for me. I couldn’t go further than chapter 17.... not even a kiss or tension filled moment had been exhibited. I might delve into some of the other books in the series, because so many characters were likable, but there were a lot of characters too and not much suspense.
