Unfortunately it just fell short, which I believe was due in large part to the editing.

    [The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, 1)] Kindle Ü Mackenzi Lee A beautiful romp through 18th century Europe.

The moral notes do come across a little strong at times ("a black man, a gay man & a woman walk into a bar" it sounds like the beginning of a horrible non joke) but I'd rather have an author who includes these characters than be stuck reading yet another story about perfect, privile

    [The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, 1)] Kindle Ü Mackenzi Lee Well written adventure story with some captivating themes. Monty was possibly a bit too flawed for too long for my personal taste. His only draw card was that I was supposed to feel sorry for him and I did but I wanted from him, I guess. Felicity was awesome though. Looking forward to reading about her.
