2017 book 75

Cindy Anstey's Duels and Deception
This is a pretty cute YA Regency romance that I couldn't quite decide how seriously to take itself. At first I was like, this is going to be one of those sweet and pleasant books where a girl has some obstacles in her live and then squares everything away and everyone lives happily ever after--then she gets kidnapped and there's a vague mystery element sort of tacked on, which was fine but not particularly compelling. I wished the writing was a little more consistent--it kind of bounces between trying to be like Jane Austen and a much more contemporary tone--but it was entertaining overall. Nothing super special but a nice diversion. B/B+.
