No woman in her right mind would consent to wearing a corset for a month. Especially a "skinny-challenged" woman like Tessa. But dreams of being debt-free dance in her head at the offer of appearing in a reality TV show. A Month in the Life of a Victorian Duke is about real people pretending to live on an English estate, circa 1879. And Tessa's leading man—a real-life duke—is so handsome she can barely breathe, with or without the corset . . .
I made the mistake of taking this book with me on an airplane flight. During the complete silence that comes when most of the passengers are either asleep or reading, I bust out laughing at the antics of the heroine in this book. After I get myself under control, I wipe my tears away and begin apologizing to those around me. I start reading again and here comes the laughter. I just couldn't help myself. So after three rounds of I'm sorry, I'm so sorry to the other passengers, I put my book up and settled on a dry boring magazine till I got to my hotel where I laughed myself silly reading it again. The part of the book where Tessa goes to early morning prayers after eating a traditional English Breakfast is priceless! I love this book and have enjoyed everything that Katie MacAlister has put out so far.
If you want to read a very entertaining book, this is it.
