The Importance of Being Scandalous, by Kimberly Bell is an entertaining historical romance, and the first book in the Tale of Two Sisters series.
After two years, Nicholas Wakefield has returned home, and he is finally planning to romantically pursue Amelia Bishop - his best friend from childhood whom he has loved for years. However, she's already engaged!
Even though her parents encouraged her engagement, Amelia isn't ready to marry, and she'd rather spend time with Nicholas instead of her fiance. After finding out about her fiance's true unappealing nature, Amelia (along with her sister's assistance) unsuccessfully tries to end their engagement in various ostentatious ways.
Due to the captivating characters, enjoyable conversations, and entertaining situations, I'm looking forward to eventually reading the next book, A Scandal by Any Other Name, in this series.
The Importance of Being Scandalous is recommended and geared towards those who prefer reading historical romances.
