Miss Delacourt Has Her Day is a sequel to Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind, but it felt almost like Part II of the same book. After Ginny Delacourt and Anthony Crenshaw’s engagement, Anthony finds out to his chagrin that the death of his cousin means he will be the next Duke of Marcross…and Ginny is not on the approved list to be a duchess. While his mother does everything she can to sabotage Ginny’s social success in London, Anthony’s uncle sets him three herculean challenges (Regency-style) that he must overcome before he can publish the banns.
Just like the first book in the series, this novel is full of clever turns of phrase and just the right amount of humor and romance. Favorite characters from the previous novel–like the vacuous Lucinda–resurface to delight the reader. This lighthearted Regency does not disappoint, and if you’ve read the first one, you won’t want to miss watching Ginny tread the perilous path to becoming Lady Crenshaw.
