Genres: Historical, Regency, Romance
If life were a fairy tale, Daisy Montgomery’s stepmother and two stepsisters would surely be cast in the wicked roles. For years, they’ve made life miserable for Daisy. But when she discovers she has a godmother, she’s determined to ask her for help. Little did Daisy expect her godmother to play matchmaker with her very own grandson—who happens to be a viscount!
A freewheeling playboy, Charles Thorpe, Viscount Lumley, is bored with his wealth-seeking female admirers. Not only that, he’s been cut off from the family coffers. One day, on a bet, he rids himself of what little money he has left in his pockets and vows to solve problems using his wits alone. But when the Impossible Bachelor is confronted with Daisy’s plan to save her castle, the payoff is more than he could have bargained for. Sometimes, if you give a girl a viscount, you just might find love….
Satisfying conclusion to the Impossible Bachelors
Thoughts on If You Give a Girl a Viscount
And we have the conclusion of the Impossible Bachelors! If You Give a Girl a Viscount has a Cinderella vibe, but with a few twists that keep it from being overly Cinderella-y. (Because that’s a word? It’s totally a word.)
I’m a wee bit disappointed we didn’t get more of the godmother. She sounded like a treat with her fourteen (FOURTEEN!) goddaughters. But Kieran Kramer has an ability to write super fun supporting characters, from the Spinster Club in book 2 and Otis from book 3. It’s just I want more of them.
Daisy’s doing everything she can to save her family’s home, despite the lack of help from her stepmother and stepsisters. (See? Cinderella vibe!) And her godmother gives her… Charlie, the Viscount Lumely. Who, despite being rich, has given up his money.
But this is good, since Charlie needs to, essentially, grow up and find who he is. Daisy, on the other hand, needs a champion…with money. Which is where much of the tension lies. I was able to guess some things, like the identity of the Keep’s owner, before it even became an issue. But that could just be me and guessing how things had to go for plot purposes.
Definitely a satisfying conclusion to the Impossible Bachelors series.
