Hello Fellow Reader,

Oh my gosh, how have I been sleeping on Alison Goodman? I now have to scour the internet looking for all her novels because if they are anything like The Benevolent Society of Ill-Mannered Ladies, Goodman may be my new must-buy author. This cover doesn't do this book justice, the pretty pastel colors make you think this may be a light-hearted cozy mystery but little do you know this covers some dark heavy topics in its pages.

Goodman has absolutely hooked me with this book, which I hope is a series (I am pretty sure it is) because I will need to read the right away. I immediately fell in love with the logical, witty, and brave Augusta/Gus who although she takes a lot of risks in her need to help people (some of which I didn't agree with) is just absolutely divine. I even love Julia who plays the straight-woman to Augusta's rashness. I even loved the romance with Lord Evan, who I also really liked.

There are three cases, plus one over-arching case, all of which were incredibly interesting and different from each other. I love that despite the restrictions that Gus has because she is a woman she still goes above and beyond and gets things done. There were a few times that Like Gus I wanted to rage at how dismissive and stifling some of the men were, especially Duffy, Gus and Julia's brother.

Overall, I loved this book and will be waiting with bated breath for a second one.

A charming Regency-era adventure that is, hands-down, the most enjoyable thing I've read this year. Spinster sisters Gus and Julia rescue women and children from exploitive and abusive situations with the help of their butler and an old friend who is on the run from the law.

I felt a little lost at the beginning of the story but I persevered and found it interesting, it is a bridging novel and I can see some things being set up here. Helen has to choose between duty and devotion and is building her support team while at the same time the built-in sexism is annoying everyone.

I'm interested in what happens next.
