About the Book
Poor, unfortunate Spinster…
Prudence Westfall, spinster, has unexpectedly had the greatest misfortune of all: she has inherited a fortune, and is now an heiress. But as a Spinster, and a stammering shy one, nothing could be worse than having a bevy of suitors pay her attention. Opportunity strikes at a house party when the most unlikely person offers the perfect solution.
Camden Vale is no gentleman, and he’s not prone to saving anyone, but something about Prue changes all that. When his offer to befriend her extends beyond the house party, and his feelings extend beyond expectation, no one is more surprised than he. Except, perhaps, for the other Spinsters, and they have much to say on the subject.
What a delightful tale The Spinster and I was. This is the story of Prue, who is a 25-year old spinster who has suddenly become very wealthy. However, that does not change who she is- a very timid and shy young woman who embarrasses easily and stutters when highly emotional. Enter Camden her rogue hero who sees her for who she is and has no other designs on her except to rescue her and to be her friend.
I liked watching these two strangers becoming friends and really not expecting anything else from each other, no romantic interests especially. I think it made them much more comfortable with each other and truly knocked down any walls that would have made them less than honest. Neither hid their faults from one another and that was a refreshing read. It was an interesting love story to watch unfold.
This is my first book I have read by author Connolly and I hope to rectify that soon. This story was filled with characters from other stories it seems, but even though I had not read them yet this one was still enjoyable. I like the idea of having a spinster like club, and I look forward to future stories as each one finds her one true match.
