The Lady and the Barrister by Ruth A. Casie

I seem to have drifted in April towards a more vintage type of read, going back to Victorian times somewhat and though I do enjoy these reads, it may get monotonous for readers Lady Anna Ravenscroft knows exactly what she wants from her life. Having gone through two Seasons she knows the horrors of scheming Mamas, bankrupt barons, and prefers a quiet life till she meets or does not meet the man of her dreams. She is an accomplished hostess and is much in demand arranging receptions and soirees and she enjoys helping out. Dragged into helping out a distant relation, against her better judgement for him to make a political debut, she is unwittingly dragged into a scheming maelstrom where her future will be compromised and where her fortune will be taken over by an undeserving man. Her old friend who has been a confirmed, very eligible bachelor has begun to realise his developing feelings for Anna and can see clearly how her loyalty to helping a cousin, is going to drag her into a greater mess. How Anna with the help of her friends unravels herself from the impending mess is a nicely told happy ever after. Sent by Caffeinated PR for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.
