A School for Brides

A School for Brides: A Story of Maidens, Mystery, and MatrimonyI enjoyed Patrice Kindl's Keeping the Castle, so I was delighted to stumble across her companion novel, A School for Brides, in which eight young ladies have been sent to the country for a school to train them to be proper brides: the only problem? There are no eligible gentlemen in the country. So when Providence (in the form of an accident) drops a young man into the school for convalescence and his two good friends show up to keep him company, the girls are delighted and set to work winning them at once.

I thought this was a fun, clean YA regency. It wasn't particularly complicated (though I admit one of the romances did surprise me a little), but it was a great fluff read. Some of the characters were drawn more deeply than others, but all were affectionately characterized.
