Book Review: When to Engage an Earl

When to Engage an Earl, by Sally MacKenzie is an fascinating historical romance set in England in 1817.

Jane Wilkinson is the new lady living at the Spinster House, and her focus on independence and anti-marriage viewpoint is constantly unraveling due to Alex, the Earl of Evans, who is searching for a wife.

As the story unfolds, Alex and Jane are forced to deal with his jilted fiance and her spinster declaration, meddling friends and family complications, as well as legendary curses and an almost supernaturally odd cat.

When to Engage an Earl is geared towards those who enjoy reading unusual historical romances. Since it's the third book in the Spinster House series, it's recommended to start with the first book to fully comprehend the frequently mentioned characters from previous books.

Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
