Review: Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right
Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right by Kieran Kramer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An unabashedly silly, lighthearted romp. Our heroine, Lady Poppy, has been putting off her many suitors by pleading a previous engagement to the "Duke of Drummond"--a man she believes is a fictional invention of her cook's. That way she can save herself for Prince Sergei, her childhood crush. However, the Duke of Drummond turns out to be real--and decides to claim the lady for his own. Hijinks ensue, along with a secret agent subplot that is more in the spirit, though not particulars, of Dufenschmirtz vs. Perry the Platypus than the Scarlet Pimpernel. If you want something lighthearted and completely unbelievable, this is your book.
