An Improbable Season: Unexpected Seasons (Book 1), by Rosalyn Eves — A Review  

From the desk of Laurel Ann Nattress:

During the Regency-era, two sisters and a cousin do their first London Season searching for husbands, or their own agency, by stretching the boundaries of society, and their own expectations.


When Thalia, Kalliope, and Charis set off to Regency London for their first Season, they know exactly what they want. Thalia means to make her mark among the intelligentsia and publish her poetry. Her sister, Kalli, aims to take high society by storm, with parties and gowns galore and a proper husband at the end of it all. Their cousin Charis hopes to earn her place among the (nearly exclusively male) scientific elite. But it doesn’t take long for things to fall apart. Kalli finds herself embroiled in scandal and reliant upon an arranged marriage to redeem her reputation, Thalia’s dreams of becoming a great poet are threatened by her attraction to a charming rake, and Charis finds herself an unexpected social hit—and the source of a scientific dilemma that her heart might not survive. Can these young women find their happily ever afters in this turbulent London Season?


Crackling Dialogue & Engaging Characters

A clever, witty, delightful, story. I can’t find enough adjectives to praise An Improbable Season. The dialogue is crackling, the characters are engaging, and the historical context and references were spot on.

I have two minor quibbles. The alternating points of view from three different heroines can be confusing to follow, coupled with their unique character names that I could not get my brain to accept. This is the point of view of an adult reading a young adult novel. Maybe young brains will keep it all straight.

A Diamond of the First Water

An Improbable Season is a diamond of the first water. Readers who enjoy witty banter and the maneuverings of the Regency marriage market will be delighted and anxiously awaiting the next novel in the series, An Unlikely Proposition, releasing on March 5, 2024.
