Earning the nickname Lady Agony was no minor achievement for Lady Agatha Bolingbroke. It required a great deal of effort to make herself so disagreeable, but she did it for a good cause: The fewer invitations she received, the more time she had to paint.

It required a great deal of effort to make herself so disagreeable, but she did it for a good cause: The fewer invitations she received, the more time she had to paint. Her mother, refusing to accept an unpopular daughter—or, worse, a talented one—insists on dragging her to every event of the season. To thwart her parents and to vent her frustration, Agatha creates a wicked alter ego: a caricaturist whose mocking illustrations take ruthless aim at the ridiculousness of the ton. Her most recent target is Viscount Addleson, whom she dubs Viscount Addlewit for his handsome but empty head. Then one of Agatha’s drawings goes too far and a villain threatens to reveal her true identity if she doesn’t comply with his demands. Now she has an impossible choice—ruin herself or an innocent young lady—and to her utter amazement the only person who can help her is Lord Addleson, whose handsome head, upon closer inspection, isn’t empty at all and whose eyes are full of mischief. Suddenly, she finds it very difficult to be disagreeable to him....

    I love the interactions between Messina’s characters – they are funny and sweet and entertaining – and she delivers again here. While we missed some of the suspense elements in The Other Harlow Girl, Messina brings it back to us with The Bolingbroke Chit. The Harlows are here and there throughout, but this time we focus on Agatha (who was mentioned in the last book but I don’t think we actually met her). Now, of course, she plays a starring role, with a wonderful new hero in Addleson. The first half of the story is all about getting to know our couple and having them get to know each other. We (and they) learn what makes them tick and get a few surprises along the way. But the second half is all about the troubles that Agatha finds herself in. It isn’t really that much of a mystery because we know who the bad guy is, but they why isn’t there and it’s fun to figure that out along with Agatha and Addleson.While it isn’t important to this story to have read the other stories (Messina does a great job of filling in the pertinent details), I highly recommend it because they, and this one, are some of the most fun I’ve had reading a book in a long time. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.)

    Regency-era funIf you like Jane Austen, you will probably enjoy the Harlow Holden series by Lynn Messina. This is the third book in the series and possibly my favorite. It involves secret caricaturists and an intrigue concerning plagiarism. It's a bit saucier and a touch more modern than an actual Austen novel, but I'd say it's written with a feminist Austenite in mind.

    I LOVE this series. Messina keeps me coming back for more because her writing style is just perfect for the genre and her character SO delightful to read. I really liked that we got to see a lot of the Harlow ladies. I absolutely loved those books and enjoyed seeing them again. This novel does have a very unusual aspect to it, namely the two main characters seem entirely incompatible with each other. One very sour and straightlaced (except for her secret identity) and the other hiding behind an air of stupidity. More unlikely characters to fall in love i havent seen. But they do! And in a way Messina can only make realistic. Fun drawings, secrets and absurdly boring characters from the hortecultural society- this novel has it all. An outstanding read!

    Really this is a 3.5 star book for me. I thought it took a while to really get going and spent too much time with characters from earlier books in the series, when I just wanted to see how Agatha and Jonah could really, believably connect. But once things did finally focus on the protagonists, this book got a lot stronger. I liked that the heroine is pretty unlikable (not just to the people in her life, but to the reader too) at first. And that her growth arc really encompassed what she'd allowed herself to become. And I thought the dawning realization of just how he felt, really worked for Jonah.

    Actually Book Three in my opinionInternally this book follows immediately after the Other Harlow Girl, I chose to read it as book 3 of the series. The actions conclude the events that started in book one: The Harlow Hoyden and deal with the villain still at large, although the primary focus is on Lady Agatha and Viscount Addison. As with the rest of the series, the plot is original, the writing witty and humorous, and the characters distinctive. The next two books are connected to this main branch but not in the direct line of the main plot. I am looking forward to reading them both and will be following this talented author in the future.

    Oh yeah, give me more of those ones!!The writing style was clearly phenomenal.The characters weren't perfect and I loved that! They both had their faults but I adore that they just wanted to make things right. Plus, they were so witty and there was soo much sarcasm in there, I had to laugh out loud quite often.The plot was elaborate, there was a lot going on and I liked it. Unfortunately, at times it was also a bit too confusing but hey.The ending was really nice but I would have loved a glimpse into the future... *sad*

    Wonderful SeriesI am enjoying this series immensely. The Harlow Hoydens are endlessly entertaining and I love the author's expansive vocabulary. For example in describing certain colors, she uses the descriptors "vermilion", "puce", and "dun" instead of the prosaic words red, purple, and gray.

    The h was too hard to like thru most of the story, which I get, because she eventually changes into someone more likeable, but it took so long I just couldn't enjoy her. And I didn't understand the H's attraction to her, since she made herself so unapproachable. Enjoyed the Harlow twins cameos, though.

    A little bit of a slow start, but then I enjoyed it.

    I could not get through this book. I had to stop half way. It was so back and forth with storylines/back stories/perspectives. I enjoyed the first book in the series, this was a disappointment.

    Another good taleI had read previous books by third author. This one is a good story and made me laugh out loud.
