About the Book


Jen Turano is great at creating giggle-worthy situations for her heroines, which encourages me to keep reading. As one crazy thing after another continued to happen, I kept thinking of a friend of mine who similarly tends to attract unusual chaos and also sees the brighter side of things. I think she and Poppy would be great friends. And the hilarious reference to Pride and Prejudice! The storyline was delightful, the supporting characters were eclectic and wonderful, and I love how the author brought redemption to a less-than-stellar character from the first book. Truly well done.


When Miss Poppy Garrison accepts her grandmother’s offer of financial help for her family in exchange for Poppy joining the New York social season, she quickly realizes she is far less equipped to mingle with the New York Four Hundred than even she knew. As she becomes embroiled in one hilarious fiasco after another, becoming the diamond of the first water her grandmother longs her to be looks more impossible by the day.

Reginald Blackburn, second son of a duke, is in New York to help his cousin find an American heiress who can help save his family’s estate. But when his very proper British manners lead Poppy’s grandmother to request he teach etiquette to Poppy, he quickly finds himself in for much more than he bargained for.

And while they couldn’t be more opposite, Reginald and Poppy just might find they have more to teach each other than they ever could have expected.
