This book made no sense. Some wtf the moments:
At the very beginning, the crotchety old patriarch makes it very clear that he dislikes the aristocracy. BUT, in order to gain his inheritance, his female relatives must MARRY A DUKE.
Idiot Phoebe accepts a marriage proposal from someone who's first name she doesn't know
Even more idiotic Calder proposes to a woman he's NEVER EVEN MET! Then invites this stranger AND HER FAMILY to move in with him...that day!
Maybe this thing made more sense after the 100 page mark..but I doubt it.
