To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Times are hard for Elizabeth. Three younger siblings and no money. So when she finds a book in her employer's library on How to Marry a Marquis, she borrows it. The problem is that she tries to practice on the new estate manager. What could possibly go wrong? Well, this is Julia Quinn, so everything.
I enjoyed the story but found too many Americanisms in what is supposed to be book set on 19th century England ,having checked the meaning the some of some words I found that they were chiefly used in North America .May I suggest the author writes in the Queens English and not use American slang.
£1 40?! Does the author think that we made the currency decimal in the 1800s? There were 20 shillings to the pound and 12 pennies to the shilling so Lucas would have said £1 3/4d - one pound three and four. Lots of Americanisms, too.
