I was fortunate enough to have been invited to a zoom program with these two new authors. Their book caught my interest thus I checked our library’s copy out. On the night of their program, I had read the first 5 chapters. Needless to say, I was hooked! While listening to Jenny and Danielle, it made sense that these two women are huge fans of Jane Austen-Pride & Prejudice being their favorite! So…with this said, if you enjoy historical fictions, Downton Abbey and are a fan of Jane Austen novels/movies, “The Last Season” is for you!
Well to do Cassandra Drayton first met Crispin St. John when they were adolescents. At that time, Crispin was working as her father’s stable boy. A friendship forms between them only to be forbidden when discovered by Cassandra’s father. Crispin is sent packing and ends up traveling to India while Cassie is locked in her father’s world. Years later, they meet up again.
Have their circumstances changed? Did their friendship survive? Hmm. You’ll need to read this book to find out! I enjoyed this book very much! And, I hope that Jenny & Danielle write a sequel!
