#BookReview: The Girl with the Pearl Pin (The Society for Single Ladies #1) by @lynneconnolly

Synopsis: Founded by the wealthiest woman in London, an unconventional crime-solving club brings together single lords and overlooked ladies from every rung of society. It’s a perfectly scandalous match...

As London’s most sought-after bachelor, the Duke of Leomore stuns society when he announces his engagement to a woman who has just been branded a thief. Yet as his painfully shy “bride-to-be” understands, it is merely a ruse until The Society for Single Ladies apprehends the true culprit—and a ploy to further delay Leo’s obligation to wed. For him, marriage will be a purely practical affair. Still, why does a stolen kiss with his faux fiancΓ©e conjure such tempting visions of romance?

As if being falsely accused weren’t mortifying enough, Phoebe North is now the talk of the town. And while she knows Leo did the honorable thing to protect her reputation, she can’t help but long for more. It would be an impossible match given their unequal stations, and Leo has made his view of marriage quite clear. Yet his kiss and flirtatious ways say something else. If only she could persuade him of how delightful it would be to thumb their noses at convention—and become fools for love...

My Review: This one I almost DNFed but finished it in about two days.  I was so invested in the story and what was going to happen I just had to finish it.  I do think that the story could have been better but overall I think that this was just a little slower than I would have liked.  I really loved the connection between the two main characters. It was a very fun read as well as funny.  But, it was nothing new to the field of historical romance and mystery. I do however, think that I would pick up the next one. 

I can definitively say, even if the storyline is more then great, this book is a must-read because of Leo.  
The mystery of who actually stole the jewels is a nice side story to the romance, although readers likely will figure out the motive before the on page reveal.
