Thanks to Wolf Publishing for an ARC of this book, the second in the new series, A Gentleman’s Guide to Courtship.” Just like in the first one, this one makes it clear that the Duke of Clearford, Samuel Merriweather, the man writing the guide, hasn’t a clue about how to woo a woman. And his sisters are there to prove his assumptions wrong, even if they won’t criticize him directly to his face. First, Tristan courted Andromeda, quickly discovering Samuel’s book was bunk. Now, Quinton is using the manual, ostensibly to court other women (not Lottie), and Lottie decides to sneak a look at the manual and use it on Quinton (hence, the title of the book).
Tldr: I recommend the book. It’s everything I’ve come to expect from Charlie Lane—humor, poignancy and spice. (I have a longer review, but space is limited on this website.)
