THE TROUBLE WITH HONOR
(Cabot Sisters: Book 1)
Written by Julia London
genre: historical romance
Honor Cabot has never wanted to fall the rules and living under stepfather's roof and money allows the eldest Cabot daughter some freedom. Now that her stepfather is on his deathbed and her stepbrother is to marry her rival Honor is being forced to marry.
Knowing all the consequences she goes to a well-known rake, George Easton to have him woo Monica, her sister-in-law, so she can break off the engagement. Instead Honor falls for George but of course he keeps her at an arm's length.
I have to say I could not like Honor Cabot no matter how much I tried. She was very selfish and a bit of a bully. I felt bad for her rival, Monica who we were supposed to see as the bully and selfish. George Easton was also self serving so I guess in the end they made a good pair. The last half of the novel dragged a bit in trying to get a HEA ending. As much as I like Julia London's writing I will not be continuing with this series.
