    Delightful Love Syory!

    I have adored every book in The Spinster Chronicles, and Charlotte and Michael’s story was the perfect ending to one of my favorite book series of all time. Michael has been in love with Charlotte practically since they were children. She, however, has been quite satisfied with being a spinster - with a capital S. She enjoys her independence and has gleefully turned down 15 proposals, including poor Michael who has continued to stay by her side year after year. After Charlotte sees the last of her close friends marry, she decides its time to focus her efforts on obtaining a husband for herself. Too bad she doesn’t see the man who loves her is right in plain view. Unable to watch the woman he loves launch a campaign for a spouse, Michael decides to find a woman of his own to court in an effort to free his heart of Charlotte Wright once and for all. This delightful story brings all the Spinster characters together again as they help Charlotte navigate her course for true love. You will find your self laughing out loud and groaning in frustration with these characters who are stubborn and authentic. But, as I’ve come to expect from Rebecca Connolly’s books, there’s lots of love (and amazing kisses) at the end of the journey. This is one book you don’t want to misS!

    Such a fun read!

    Such a fun read! Charlotte is the headstrong character who knows exactly what she wants (she thinks) and has no problem going after it. Her best friend, Michael is expected to go along for the ride and when he doesn’t, Charlotte is left re-evaluating her heart’s desires. I love the friends to more and the way the story unfolds. Connolly writes with wit and humor and in such a way that all the characters truly come to life. The secondary characters are just as enjoyable as the main ones and add levels of depth that enrich the story. It was wonderful to revisit some of the previous spinsters, although it is not necessary to enjoy this book as a standalone. I highly recommend this clean, regency love story with a bit of sass and humor. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and all opinions expressed are my own, freely given.

    Not a stand-alone/Clean Regency Romance

    Spinster Ever After by Rebecca Connolly (4.5 stars) *Not a stand-alone! You will be horribly confused about who’s who if you don’t read the preceding books.* I was late to this series and didn’t start with book one. It made the plethora of characters confusing in the extreme. However, if you’ve read all the novels and know the characters, it should be delightful to see the people you have come to know and love living out their HEA’s. Charlotte, the heroine, is a strong character who had gathered other similarly situated female friends and has had success, along with these friends, writing The Spinster Chronicles. They were spinsters only in the strictest sense of the word; they were in their mid to late twenties and unmarried. All of her friends have, one by one, changed their spinster state by falling in love and getting married. Charlotte sees all the newly-married love surrounding her and wants to experience love, too. But only the deepest, all-encompassing true love will do. So, she decides to enlist her formerly-spinster friends to find a man to fall in love with. Her friends try to tell her that that is not how love works and that their own love journeys were not smooth, but she is determined. Charlotte wasn’t a character that I particularly liked much. Thankfully, the author writes in enough vulnerable moments that Charlotte is at least human. She tends to walk all over others to get her own way; she does it a bit unintentionally because her strong personality seems to have always helped her get her own way in most things. I’m glad the author chooses to grow her character a bit. Michael is the more likable character of the two. He has loved Charlotte since they were young and even proposed to her many years ago and was refused. Yet he still hangs around, becoming a good friend and someone her family is very comfortable with. Michael has waited and waited for Charlotte to realize that she loves him, too. But when she asks him to help her sort through the plethora of men and choose one or two to focus her efforts on, he’s done. He can’t stand by and watch her pursue love, when it isn’t him. He decides to try to start a new life that doesn’t include Charlotte (‘grow a backbone’ as another reviewer so astutely put it). He finds a couple of male friends to help. He will start to be more sociable, perhaps even find a lady to court. Both our intrepid protagonists undergo make-overs (mostly in the form of clothing and hairstyles) and both find someone to court or be courted by who is good-natured, well-suited in personality, clever and relatively unaffected by society. Michael is rather miserable whenever Charlotte is around, but otherwise is finding his way nicely. Charlotte is clueless until she realizes that she can’t have Michael if she marries another. Then she’s miserable when he’s around. It’s a bit of a comedy of errors. And there is one really passionate kiss when separation anxiety comes to a head. They eventually get together, of course, and it’s a very lovely happily ever after. It’s certain that they are suited; after all, they’ve been friends for most of their lives. As one reviewer mentions, there’s some fall-out to their schemes in the form of the two people they had become attached to. The author didn’t really give us any sort of idea how hurt, or not hurt, these individuals were by the sudden change of heart that Michael and Charlotte had. Every character from her other novels makes an appearance sometime in the book-many at the very end. That should be fun and satisfying to those who have read the entire series. Reading this book was quite a ride and well-worth it. The author writes the changes in character/attitude/love at a pace that seems natural and not rushed. *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special
