Book Review: Miss Lattimore’s Letter by Suzanne Allain

Looking for your next read? Check out Miss Lattimore's Letter by Suzanne Allain, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Swalena G.

There is the old adage, “No good deed goes unpunished.”  Miss Sophronia “Sophie” Lattimore learns the truth of this saying when she intervenes in the love life of two couples with unexpected consequences.  After accidently overhearing a clandestine conversation between one of the couples, Miss Lattimore feels that she can help untangle their misunderstanding and bring happiness to all.  So, she writes an anonymous letter to one of the gentlemen advising him that he may be choosing the wrong lady.  The letter has immediate success in uniting him with his true love.

Before long, Miss Lattimore’s identity becomes known to all of London’s polite society. Soon her advice is solicited by the intriguing Sir Edmund Winslow who is looking for a suitable wife.  She is also called upon to help her cousin Cecilia who has too many choices and former debutante, Priscilla Hammond is unhappy with her choice.  In addition, a long-lost love of Miss Lattimore who jilted her ten years ago is back and ready to ask for her hand in marriage.

Everyone is talking of Miss Lattimore’s matchmaking skills; the only problem is she's having trouble matching herself to the right gentleman. 

This is a delightful novel of misunderstandings, vanity and most importantly - romance.  If you enjoy Regency romance with humor, this is a must read.
