I had read the first book in this series and while I was confused by the setting, I figured I wanted to give the series another try. I’m really glad I did. Here is my review of The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan.
Now that I had a better idea of the time period and conflict between the nobility and the working class, I felt like I was really able to appreciate the story. I think the legislation to expand the right to vote was a great backdrop to the romance of the story.
I also thought Jane was great. It’s so interesting to see the problem of having so much money and wanting to stay single for a woman. The way she managed her problem by putting on such a show was really fun to watch. She was always really certain of who she was and what she wanted and I really enjoyed that.
This was a big improvement compared to the first book as far as I’m concerned. I also got a glimpse of what the plan is for the third book and absolutely have to read it. I give it four out of five stars.
