    One thought on “The Dress of the Season”

    1. The Dress of the Season is childhood-friends-2-lovers romance so I hoped I will like it. Plus some of my friends gave it 5 stars. But It was not bad but nothing spectacular either.Mediocre historical romance. Only praise I can think of is that it was well written for such a small number of pages. I will probably completely forget it in a couple of weeks.

    2. One of those reads that remind me why I started reading romance-for the happy sights of pleasure over a well written book about true love.It can be read as a stand alone and still shine in all of its glory.Still, I recommend to readers to try out this author in general. She knows how to spin a story and portrait good three dimensional characters.

    3. This little bit of fluff was fun to read, but not really one of the abiding classics of romance.It's just terrible how the wealthy young bachelors of the world are so oppressed by their responsibility for their beautiful wards that they are forced to visit ladies of a certain reputation for the release of their needs.In this case, the whole thing is complicated by a mis-delivered scandalous dress made out of magical wish-giving cloth. I hate it when that happens.Also, Lady Worth ends up looking [...]

    4. His body was coursing with the knowledge that he and Felicity Grove wereembracing .He had been too long without a woman. That had to be it. Needs had been building for months—hell, it was the reason he had sought out the widowed Mrs. Grace to begin with. Felicity did not look like Mrs. Grace so much as Mrs. Grace looked like Felicity.He had the hots for the girl (childhood love) under his guardianship, so he he had to have his needs taken care of by a mistress. The poor dear, how dreadful to b [...]

    5. For the life of me I cannot think how this book fits into the Blue Raven canon but fine. I'll go with it. It's a lovely novella between a woman whose lost her family and a man who is cracking under the burdens of his responsibilities, including responsibly raising his ward, who happens to be his deceased best friend's younger sister and our novellas heroine. Novellas work best, in my opinion, when a history is already established between our hero and heroine because it establishes a beginning an [...]

    6. I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.This was a joy to read. The characters were wonderful and the plot was smooth. I chuckled a few times with Faith's behavior especially for the time period. It was a quick read and thoroughly "scandalous"!!!! This is the first book from this author that I have read. I will have to pick up another as it was fun. I could see every scene being played just vividly in my mind. I especially enjoyed one of the last scenes in [...]

    7. Loved it!Normally I don't read many novellas or short stories as I prefer full length novels but the synopsis for this particular story really drew my interest and I have always enjoyed Kate Noble's books and so I decided to read it and I am so glad that I did! This is a gem of a romance and I loved every minute of it and highly recommend it.

    8. Good book, but could have been longer. I would have liked to have seen more development of these characters. Still, if you're looking for a quick, light read, this is for you.

    9. So much potentialI felt there was so much potential to develop these characters. All we got was a hint into their lives. The ending was extremely disappointing. The ending was so abrupt. Again so much potential to add depth to the story and the characters.

    10. I thought for a Novella Kate has done really well at character developement if you are looking for it. Not sure it's there as obvious as it may have been in a longer book. At first you think here we go, another skirt chasing nobleman after a new mistress gets reformed by falling in love. But it couldn't be further from the truth. Once again it's a brilliant reminder that people aren't always what they seem on the surface and that experiences often make them become something they aren't and the s [...]

    11. Very cute short story from a "new to me" author. Parts of this story moved really slow but the sweet feel of two friends rediscovering each other and becoming something more made up for the pace. I only wish that Harris would have made up for his callous behavior towards Felicity in some way. I got tired of her always being the one pursuing him. I would've liked to have seen some effort on his part. I'll probably be checking out one of the authors full length novels in the future.

    12. A sweet little Regency romance novella, adroitly handled by the author, and quite a nice way to pass the commute to work. It’s so short it can be read in an hour or so. I downloaded it on to my e-reader while caught with nothing to read in an airport, and finished it just as the gates opened for boarding. Nice.

    13. My full review here.The Dress of the Season does a pretty good job with pacing, the chemistry between the characters, giving us a different-enough story to hold my attention throughout.My favorite thing about this novella was the strong-willed character of Felicity.

    14. My first e-book. Very fun, sweet book, with an easy plot to follow. Just the right thing for a couple of hours reading on a rainy day. Kate Noble is witty and smaart in her writing. I always enjoy them. Can't think of better way to spend $2.99

    15. A little bit of fluff over an unfortunate mix up over a revealing silver dress that brings together a gentleman and his younger ward and the discovery that perhaps they're meant for one another. Some poignant moments, I liked it.3.5/5

    16. My first Kate Noble read and it was great. I really enjoyed this novella and will definitely be reading more of her books!

    17. Short and formulaic. Nothing spectacular. Nothing bad. Good for passing time if you don't have anything better to do.

    18. One of the better Novella's I've read in my time Usually I'm not a fan of them, but this one flowed nicely and was a quaint little addition to the Blue Raven series of books. :)

    19. Good story, interesting characters a bit on the short side, but that explains why Kobo had it at the low cost. I think these characters would hold up well in a longer book.

    20. Good charactersShort but cute story. Loved the main characters. Funny moments. Can't wait to read more stories from this author. Thanks

    21. I really enjoyed this story. Just the right amount of romance and I loved the interaction between the h/h.
