After finishing It Takes Two to Tangle, I was really excited to pick up To Charm a Naughty Countess by Theresa Romain.
Romain’s heroes in the Matchmaker Trilogy all seem to be broken in the eyes of Society. Michael cannot function in a crowd. Michael is trying to find any way he can to save his dukedom from financial ruin. He uses methods that are new and untested. Combine ingenuity with social anxiety and you have a mad eccentric. Caroline seemed to be so mysterious in It Takes Two to Tangle and I couldn’t wait to read her story.
Perhaps I am more like Caroline’s puppies than I care to admit. I was sort of disappointed with her story. I expected her story to be more exciting than it was. Romain makes up for it with great characters, fun settings, and a small twist in the story that I hadn’t seen coming.
While I didn’t love To Charm a Naughty Countess quite as much as It Takes Two to Tangle, I’m still looking forward to the third book in the series!
