February 22, 2011 The Finishing Touches by Hester Browne
I was adding books to my GoodReads account when I realized that the Hester Browne, whose Little Lady series I had enjoyed, had written more books since the last Little Lady book. I scoured the interlibrary loan and after a long wait, The Finishing Touches arrived. Unfortunately, life intervened and I didn't have the time to read that I wanted. Luckily for me, I had my monthly trip for a pedicure today, which helped me polish off more than a hundred pages. And then, I just couldn't put it down.
There were a lot of things going on, but they were all handled well. I really do wish there was a "finishing school for the 21st century" because I would definitely love some of those classes. Each chapter started with a "hint" and I felt like I should write them down. And I was actually surprised at who our heroine ended up with; usually I can tell from the first chapter.
It was a great read and I'm sorry that my interlibrary loan doesn't have her other book available. But I'll definitely keep my eye out for it!
