Fun, light book, as expected from Meg Cabot. Not a contemporary chick lit, but a historical one (although it did seems modern). It is nice that Meg Cabot writes a different genre, but because her heroines are so nowadays-teenager, I like her contemporary better.
Victoria is very independent, like I want in a heroine, but she was too much dense most of the times. As, it is obvious her Lord is interested in her money (and she knows it, but at the same time, doesn't?), it is obvious Jacob more than likes her, it is obvious what the evil scheme was, etc.
Not one of her best, pretty forgettable and predictable... but it was fun to read as always.
