Mr. Malcolm's List by Suzanne Allain

Genre: Regency Romance

Publication Date: February 2009

One Word Review: Fun

GoodReads Synopsis: The Honorable Mr. Malcolm has a secret. This elusive matrimonial prize, long the target of desperate debutantes and their matchmaking mothers, is well known for his fastidiousness. What is not well known is that he has a list of qualifications for his future bride. Can any woman hope to win the heart of such a hardened critic? Selina Dalton can only try her best. And when she begins to succeed, Jeremy Malcolm is not sure whether he has discovered the perfect woman... Or the perfect hoax.

Kathy’s Review: After reading Ingocnito by Allain I had to see what other books she had written, which is how I found Mr. Malcolms List. This was probably just as fun as Incognito, both are lighthearted regency novels. I thought the story idea was fun, the characters likable and of course I love the regency setting. I admit, I did not love Mr. Malcolm, but he did grow on my throughout the story. I definitely think it’s a good idea to have a general idea of what qualities you look for in a spouse, I just didn’t always like how he went about things or the items on his list (but, to each their own). Selina was really likable though, I liked that she was honest (for the most part) and held her own. They have good chemistry together and was not only happy for them, but for all the side characters as well. If you’re in the mood for a fun, light read then I’d give this one a try!
