Caroline is not looking forward to this year’s Season in London. Her mother already has schemes for her marriage prospects—and none of them include love, it seems. But when a dashing young duke begins to pursue her, Caroline has second thoughts. Caught between ambition and desire, Caroline may gamble her heart away without even realizing it.
The Second Season provides the story of young Caroline Hopkins who arrives in London for her second season with concerns about whether she is ready for marriage. But her mother is bound and determined to see her daughters paired off with appropriately titled suitors. Unfortunately for Lady Hopkins' plans neither Lucy nor Caroline is particularly concerned with titles. Both girls are more interested in finding someone they can care about. While Caroline has caught the eye of the Duke of Rembridge, she finds herself doubting his motives and rather uncomfortable with his attentions. Yet the talented shoemaker, Mr. Clark, she finds very appealing. Lucy also finds herself falling for someone beneath her mother's ambitions. Luckily for both girls, their father is very much on their side in the finding someone to love department. An interesting side plot revolves around the girl's parents and the misunderstanding that stands between them from the time they wed. This particular challenge weighs heavily on both Lord and Lady Hopkins' plans and wishes for their daughters. I think what I enjoyed most about the book though was how both Caroline and Lucy were willing to look for men who were good and could make them happy, titles or not.
I am currently working as a elementary school librarian which I love. I enjoy sharing books on my blogs of which I have two (Geo Librarian and LDS and Lovin' it). I also review for School Library Journal.
