About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Foibles and Follies of Miss Grace (Lords for the Sisters of Sussex Book 6) by Jen Geigle Johnson

The Foibles and Follies of Miss Grace

A woman who can't trust herself to make a good marriage choice asks for an arranged marriage, but then falls in love with someone else.

Grace standish is the youngest of the Standish sisters. Years ago, she became flattered by one of the men of the ton, only to find herself rescued from a carriage ride that could have ruined her forever. Since then, and watching each of her sisters marry, she isn't confident in her ability to know what would be best for her. She trusts her eldest sister June completely and knows that she and her husband Morley, will help her. But a new, young, Vicar enters the scene and she finds herself so incredibly curious about him. He's obviously handsome. But he's so much more. Is she correct in her thinking? Her family talks of titles and wealth and security. They seem to overlook the excellent Vicar until it's almost too late.

Lord Stewart has long since tired of the ton and their selfish ways. Though he's only participated in two seasons, he's watched brother after brother have their seasons. Nothing about the elaborate gowns, the entire waste of money on lavish balls, and the backbiting, gossiping ton appeals to him. And so he decides to do everything he can to steer clear of the lot of it. His family is in great need and so he takes a position as a Vicar and dedicates himself to his work. He does nothing to try to appeal to anyone socially, and even still, women are always near, their mothers, guardians and grandmothers as well as the new debutantes. As he attempts to navigate these new relationships while remaining single, he notices one woman who stands out in every way. As they find themselves thrown together, and he at last finds his heart yearning to make her his, he learns she is about to be betrothed to another in a match most anticipated by her entire family.

Enjoy this final book in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex series and introduce yourselves to a new family of BROTHERS who might just might steal your heart.


What should you do when you can't trust yourself to pick a suitable husband? If you're Grace Standish, you just might turn to your family for help. Her five sisters have found love and marriage, so they can surely find her a mate. They should be able to arrange the perfect marriage!

And then, Grace meets the new vicar. He cares for his congregation, he's certainly appealing to women, and he appears to be attracted to Grace.  He may not be wealthy or belong to the upper class, but does that truly matter? Is Oliver Stewart the suitable match that she's been hoping for?

The Foibles and Follies of Miss Grace is an entertaining Regency romance that kept me engaged until the very end. I loved watching the friendship that develops between Grace and Oliver. Friendship that turns into a strong physical attraction, but there's also a Lord Featherstone in the picture. He's been handpicked by Grace's own family, so what will she decide? 

This is the last book in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex series, and author Jen Geigle Johnson ends it in a delightful way. If you enjoy historical Regency fiction and 'take-your-breath-away' romance, you'll want to grab a copy of The Foibles and Follies of Miss Grace.

I received a complimentary digital copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


An award winning author, including the GOLD in Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards and LDSPMA Praiseworthy's top award for Romance, Jen Geigle Johnson has more stories circulating in her brain than can possibly be told. She discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager. HIstory is her main jam. Her literary heroes include the greats: Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. But she has modern sensibilities as well. Six children and an inspiring husband keep her going and make certain she doesn't stay glued to a keyboard or lost in obscure fascinating details of old castles. She once greeted an ancient turtle under the water by grabbing her fin. She waterskis like a boss and hits the powder, falling down steep moguls with grace. During a study break date in college, she sat on top of a jeep's roll bars up in the mountains and fell in love with the man who would become her everything.

Now, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
