    5. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Carina UK and Netgalley.)Grace is a party planner at a Regency-themed New Year’s Eve ball, and she hasn’t had a break all night. Throwing caution to the wind, she drags a handsome man into the corner for a new-years snog, only to somehow find herself transported to 1813, Regency London.How did Grace end up transported back in time to 1813? And what does she do now?This was an okay story, but it felt [...]

    6. *Review can also be found Jackie's Book World :D*Rating: 3.5/5As an event manager, Grace Lancaster is hard at work making sure that the New Year's Eve ball is a success. But at midnight the lights go out and she accidentally suffers an accident that will cost her to time travel back in time to an actual Regency ball.

    7. This was completely a guilty pleasure read. Grace, an event planner, ends up unknowingly and unwittingly traveling from 2013 London to 1813 London. She ends up entangling herself in a scandalous situation with Jasper, who is an earl set to propose to a woman he's been expected to marry for years. However, when Grace ends up taking him behind a pillar at the ball they're both attending and things get steamy -- and then they're caught -- Jasper's stuck doing the honorable thing by offering for her [...]

    8. Originally posted on:> lauraslittlebookblog.Débutantes Don't Date tells the story of Grace. She is an event organiser and is currently organising the New Year's Ball at Kensington Palace. Then on the stroke of midnight after picking up a peculiar broach, Grace finds herself not in 2013, but in 1813 and in a very awkward position!Even though the title of this book does not exactly go with the story, I still enjoyed the story that I found inside.I like time-travelling novels and this one was f [...]

    9. I’d like to thank NetGalley and Carina UK for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.When I first read the synopsis of this book, I was reminded of the movie Kate and Leopold, which featured Hugh Jackman and Meg Ryan. While the movie was very sweet, with some funny scenes, this book fell a bit short.I would say my biggest issue was with character building. I felt some of them, such as Jasper, acted inconsistently. I do not know if it was because wanted to write a racy b [...]

    10. I found this book on a list of time travel romances and it was available through my local library. So, that was a plus.I don't really have much to add that the other reviews haven't listed before - lots of anachronistic references, lots of jumping between points of view, lots of presumptions / arguments that could be solved with simple conversations, and not a lot of growth between the characters beyond lust at first sight. The villain was a mess and that entire story line was a bit convoluted. [...]

    11. Grace is in the middle of working a party in 2013 when she gets transported to 1813. She causes a great scandal and is betrothed to one of the most eligible men in town, but can she keep her cool while trying to get back home? Or will she get sent off to Bedlam for blathering about showers and cellphones?It was a quick read, but the story felt like it was hurried. Jasper's sister too easily accepts the idea of time-travel and everyone miraculously is ok with a woman having no money or connection [...]

    12. Review Posted on Harlequin JunkiesDebutantes Don’t Date by Kristina O’Grady: “Debutantes Don’t Date” is a time travel romance, which can often be really fun if you like your romances tinged with a touch of the paranormal, and some fish-out-of-the-water humor. In this case, the “fish” is Grace Lancaster, a party planner who on New Year’s Eve, 2013, is working at a party for the Duke and Duchess of Kensington. Grace, dressed in a Regency costume, has been hard at work all evening, [...]

    13. I liked the idea of this, being a fan of the concept of time travel in general, but this book does not appear to have had professional editing or fact checking at all.The mistakes are numerous - firstly, when the heroine finds herself back in 1814, as soon as she opens her mouth everyone instantly knows she is American. Hard to believe this would have really happened in that era. Then, even worse, the real Regency characters seem to speak more or less the same as she does, with no distinction gi [...]

    14. Falderall and fiddle-ee-dee. The author didn't really take a stab at using period appropriate language, was more of a sprinkling really. A short, predictable romp. It was pretty remarkable that Victoria encouraged a stranger to marry her brother after just meeting her-and believed the whole time travel bit. I learned a new word "chook" from this novel. Unfortunately, it is an offensive term for women meaning hen. Quotes:My God, he looked like Ryan Gosling in "The Notebook" -v. goodThe mystery ma [...]

    15. Yeah Ditto - What everyone else saysHead Hopping all over the place and I've only read the first few pages.I had to Google Ryan Gosling as I don't watch many movies (I read instead) He's SO not dark and handsomeThe heroine hasn't touched a man for three years and drags a stranger into an alcove to make out ? Even the erotica writers aren't that fast !I'm only 6% into this story, so I'll finish the review later - and the book.I'm going to read something by Stephanie Laurens in the meantime.

    16. I'm not really an historical romance fan, but the concept of time travel to the regency era fascinated me. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms O'Grady's book, particularly the introducing of technology to Regency folk. There's a crazy villain thrown in for good measure with a bit of a twist involved too, along with an unlikely friendship. If you haven't read regency before and would like an excellent introduction to it then this is the book for you.

    17. Debutantes Don't Date is delightfulrryuldn't resist LOL.This book is so awesomely fluffy and fun to read. It was a wonderful break between not so good books, mysteries and biographies. So I tremendously enjoyed reading this cute story.As my mom would say, this is "something for the heart". Reading left me smiling, and thinking that all is right with this book.

    18. This debut novel is cute and sexy and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kristina O'Grady's story is one of time travel and Regency romance, a combination I certainly hadn't read before. I found the novel to be original and well thought out. It is the second book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading her other novels.

    19. The ending in some ways was abrupt but still a good read I enjoyed. I wish the writing flowed better; transitions definitely need work (a line break or something between character point of view changes). I felt like the book was written too fast and the author missed some creative opportunities.
