The Bride Hunt
This second volume in the Matchmaker series, set in early 20th century London, features Prudence, the middle Duncan sister: intelligent, serious, beautiful, with an excellent clothes sense. The sisters have continued the publication of The Mayfair Lady, started by their mother, as a way to eke out a living after their father lost the family fortunes. Trouble looms when The Mayfair Lady is hit with a lawsuit for publishing a scathing article about an unscrupulous peer of the realm. The sisters seek to enlist Sir Gideon Malvern, a young and extraordinarily successful barrister, to represent them. The milieu is vividly represented, though Prudence and her sisters are very forward thinking women and perhaps not typical! I found this volume to be even more delightful than The Bachelor List, Constance’s story.
