The Season by Sarah MacLean

If you think Jane Austen meets Nancy Drew sounds like an entertaining romp of a book then you'll adore The Season. 
As the back cover states, "Boys, ballgowns, murder...This year's season will be unforgettable!"

I have always loved historical fiction, murder mysteries and those lovely Jane Austen novels with strong female characters who still yearn for true love.  Well, The Season has it all---and does it quite well IHMO.  Just enough romance to make it interesting--not enough to make it a mush-fest. 

Alex, Ella, and Vivi are young ladies making their society debut--it is, after all, The Season.  Wanting nothing to do with becoming the prim and dutiful wife of some dreadful bore, Alex is completely uninterested in the balls she must attend.  When the Earl of Blackmoor is killed in a strange and highly suspect accident, she decides to help his son Gavin--a longtime friend of her family solve the mystery--whether he wants her help is another matter altogether. 

Did I mention Gavin is young, brooding and "devilishly handsome"?  A yummy recipe for romance, I say. 

Girls, grab this one.  You'll love it.  The perfect book to curl up and read on a rainy day with a bit of fall chill in the air.  Enjoy!
