I love a good revenge story and the fact that this takes place during the Regency era just made me so happy!
Lyra has a difficult past. She had a friend that she thought was trustworthy when she was young. But, when a new and rich (and handsome) boy moves into town, Ela doesn’t realize the overwhelming power of jealousy, particularly in her best friend, Poppy. Poppy not only starts a rumor but “finds evidence” making Ela look like she was with a boy, therefore Ela loses all respect from her peers and even her family and is sent to a small, country, boarding school for problematic girls.
However, like I said, this is about revenge. When Lyra (Ela) returns for the season years later, she immediately grabs everyone’s attention. But is dragging down Poppy and lying to the boy from her past worth it? Some would say yes and some would say no. I suggest read and find out!
This was a great read! A really delicious, often humorous look at what makes real friends so important. I loved this story!
