Austenesque novel My Dear Sophy by Kimberly Truesdale so I was super excited to find out she was coming out with a Regency romance Of course, one of the things I loved about My Dear Sophy was its focus on an unlikely heroine Sophia Croft from Austen s Persuasion Leave it to Ms Truesdale to bring us another story with the unlikeliest of heroinesand to totally rock it.In The Wrong Woman Isobel Masters isn t the type of heroine you usually find in a Regency romance She I read and loved the Austenesque novel My Dear Sophy by Kimberly Truesdale so I was super excited to find out she was coming out with a Regency romance Of course, one of the things I loved about My Dear Sophy was its focus on an unlikely heroine Sophia Croft from Austen s Persuasion Leave it to Ms Truesdale to bring us another story with the unlikeliest of heroinesand to totally rock it.In The Wrong Woman Isobel Masters isn t the type of heroine you usually find in a Regency romance She s too old in fact, she s firmly on the shelf she s too chubby, she s got her head in the clouds and her nose in books of poetry, and worst or best of all she s as klutzy as all get out In her first season she was given the unfortunate nickname Dizzy Izzy after a series of spectacularly klutzy moments All is against the idea of Isobel every making a decent match and she is resigned to acting as her younger sister s chaperone Her younger sister, Catherine, is everything Isobel isn t young, slender, gracefulbut luckily for the reader, and for Izzy, Cat is actually a sweet and caring sibling Cat attracts the interest of Miles, the Baron of Revere, who has decided to finally settle down and get married because it is what society expects of him Miles is not planning for his heart to be involved in his decision Miles s heart is rarely involved in anything Cat seems to be an excellent choice for a bride other than being related to Dizzy Izzy who seems to have an inexplicable dislike for Miles Inexplicable that is, until he s reminded that HE was the one who saddled her with that name ten years ago as he and his friends laughed at her expense While Miles courts Cat he finds himself drawnandto Izzy s warmth, humor, and passion Izzy is surprised to find out that there is actually a warm heart beating under Revere s cold exterior They can t even admit to themselves the attraction they feel simmering between them Even if they could there s a huge problem Miles is very publicly courting Isobel s sister.Just as Miles is realizing the depth of his own feelings, a danger from his past threatens to tear Izzy away from him before he confess his love.I absolutely loved both Miles and Izzy Izzy is a refreshing heroine She s smart and funny, but still a bit awkward and self conscious Miles starts out really unlikeable, and then Truesdale peels back the layers revealing the true hero underneath The dynamic between the two was great Miles truly doesn t get Izzy at first and Izzy can t see past the hurt he s caused her in the past Their banter is fun, and then sweet, and then HOT By the end of the novel, Miles has made the journey from kind of a jerk to complete and total hero The kind of hero found in the poetry that Izzy is so fond of.The supporting cast of characters in The Wrong Woman is fabulous It would have been really easy to short change Catherine and make her the annoying, perfect arm candy kind of girl in opposition to Izzy s character But Truesdale managed to create a realistic and loving relationship between two women you can actually see yourself being friends with And then there s Aunt Hetty who is hilarious and fun and Miles s younger brother Jack who is sweet and handsome and so in love with love.All in all, this was an engrossing read with several surprises and swoon worthy moments I m sure after reading it you will all envy Izzy her dance with Miles I sure did.Five out of Five Stars Yeahthis is a no from me dawg And I m sad because it starts with promise The hero, Miles, is what we call a jackass He s a rich baron, good looking, entitled, and carelessly cruel in his quest to play up to his cronies He mocked the heroine, Isobel, ten years ago during her debut Season, christened her with the unfortunate nickname Dizzy Izzy and basically treats her like a fat, frumpy, unattractive wallflower and guess what During the past 10 years, she s become the laughingstock, m Yeahthis is a no from me dawg And I m sad because it starts with promise The hero, Miles, is what we call a jackass He s a rich baron, good looking,

basically treats her like a fat, frumpy, unattractive wallflower and guess what During the past 10 years, she s become the laughingstock, mocked for her clumsiness and weight, and generally settled on the shelf Until he decides he s interestedin her little sister Ok, cool All the elements are here for an excellent redemptive love type of story, yes There is angst, there are genuine moments where the characters connect and their big romantic moment no sex, just kisses fyi did work well for me However, it falls apart because there s no follow through He s such a jackass that I needed to see him accept what a horrible person he was, and then actually redeem himself by righting the wrongs he s committedexcept he doesn t He admits his mistakes, but the entire arc of remorse and redemption isn t satisfying to me The way his love for Isobel plays out is very much about making sure HE was ok, and even when a very dangerous event happens, it s all about HIS FEELINGS Even the supporting characters basically pushed the heroine s feelings aside in service of the hero I wanted to see him claim her, to proclaim his love for her publicly and to see him put his friends who are basically trash in their place I wanted him to focus solely on her and make up for being such a jerk But it doesn t happen The story takes pains to make sure that the hero is ok, and the heroine is simply there in service to that.Essentially, if you re very hero centric and don t care about the heroine, this is very much in that style I m just not that person.But hey, I ve cleared my kindle of onebook, so there s my silver lining Otherwise, I didn t enjoy the ending and I can t recommend this.Forreviews, visit I did not like this book I was angered that the h s sister was on the H s side after finding out that the H treated her sister so badly and the sister pushed the h to forgive him and get over it Basically so that the h wouldn t ruin the sister s marriage prospect with the H It also angered me that the H asked the h s sister to marry him out of obligation even when he knew he loved the h He really wasn t even pushed very hard to offer, but for some reason he grudgingly did It was all very I

much to this story Two things did annoy me about the book firstly, the heroine kept being called fat Just check out Reynolds and other portrait painters of the time to see that thin was generally only for the poor The other thing is the cover, it gives the impression that this book is a sensual romance, it isn t Other than that, I found The Wrong Woman to be an enjoyable easy going quick read.
