The Season

Alex is dreading "the Season." Her mother can't wait to introduce her to society and find her a suitable match. Alex isn't interested in marriage, she doesn't want to be on display or hide her intelligence. Between her three brothers teasing her; she sure it will be a disaster - despite the fact that she has beautiful gowns to wear. Her two BFFs Ella and Vivi help her navigate the waters. Soon she's dancing with friends of her brothers, out riding with her honorary brother, and making social calls. At first, it's exciting and horrifying at the same time, but then, Alex begins to look at Gavin (her honorary brother) in a different light. She never noticed how handsome he was before. But things are different between the two of them all of a sudden - first, his father just died suddenly, making him an earl and secondly, they've been fighting about suitors. Gavin believes that his father's death wasn't an accident. He wants to proof it. Alex tries to help him, but he pushes her away. Can he really be the "one," or is Alex imagining that he feels anything more for her than a sisterly affection?

The Season is Sarah MacLean's first novel - and she's found her niche as she perfectly combines the romance of the Regency Era with a mystery. I'm already looking forward to her next book. I'm wishing that this book is part of a trilogy, each featuring the three friends and their pursuit of romance in society.
