The Scoundrel and the Debutante review


The Scoundrel and the Debutante by Julia London gives us an unusual pairing. Instead of the American girl seeking a noble to wed, we have an American man and a British lady.

Poor Roan has trouble understanding much of what the locals say to him and vice versa. It’s true; English and American really are two different languages. As a result, he’s heading south to a town to find his missing sister when he should be heading north. Pru enlightens him that Wesleigh and Weslay are not one and the same. Then, starved for adventure, she decides to accompany him.

The twosome grow close crammed into a coach and then closer still as the adventure continues. They are quite likeable, and the people they meet along the way are amusing. So are the rest of Pru’s family and Roan’s sister. There’s not a whole lot of conflict, but it doesn’t much matter.

This is the third of the Cabot Sisters series. I don’t remember reading book one or two, but I will be looking for book four.
