Let’s hear it for the aunts

Published January 29, 2014 by francesothomas

It probably says a lot about me that I found the most entertaining characters in Elizabeth Boyle”s book If Wishes Were Earls to be the three (or maybe four) aunts of the hero. They are charmers in a Dame Maggie Smith, dowager countess kind of way. I want to be them when I grow up. Oh, wait. Maybe I already am. I think I can master the repartee. All I need is a castle.

The plot itself was a bit predictable although there were a couple surprises near the end. It was also a bit choppy in the use of flashbacks.

All in all though, it was a good read with a heroine who was far more resourceful than her hero.
