Duchess by Design
by Maya Rodale
It took a little while for me to get into this story (I’m not a big fan of historical romance, so this was no fault of the book’s) but once I did, I really enjoyed it. Smart and sassy is the perfect way to describe Maya Rodale’s writing – and the heroine! I also enjoyed the incorporation of British aristocracy but on American soil, so nothing was as it was expected to be. A fun twist!
I loved that so much of this book focused on the revolution of putting pockets in dresses! At first, I thought it was cute and funny, but then I began to realize just how important pockets really are and how limiting it is for women not to have them. What an eye opener!
