4.5 stars This book was such a fun read. If you're not willing to suspend a fair amount of disbelief, this might not be your book, but for those willing to roll with the story setup, the writing is sharp and hilarious.
Told in the first person by Gwnedolyn, we learn that she has been betrothed to easygoing Bertie Milburn and when she shows up at her wedding, she figures that's who she is marrying. It is only after the wedding that she learns she has instead married his brother Cambourne, the older of the twins and a future duke. To make things even crazier, Cambourne has to impersonate his brother for a time for reasons that everyone except Gwen already knows. She's not terribly thrilled about this development, and it takes her some time to realize that she wasn't so much in love in Bertie, but rather had a firm idea of what her future would hold and is having difficulty coping with that rug being pulled out from under her.
For his part, Cambourne is the voice of reason in this book. When you meet Gwen's family, you'll understand that such a voice has been sorely needed. The repartee between Gwen and Cambourne is wonderful and even if Gwen is a little scattered sometimes, being inside her head is laugh out loud funny quite a bit of the time.
This book features quite a lot more talking and more muted love scenes than the average non-inspy historical that I've read. Since I liked listening the characters, I enjoyed it quite a bit. I only wish Jessica Benson was still writing, but when I check online, she seems to have vanished.
