Keeping Up with the Cavendishes #1
Maya Rodale
Releasing February 23rd, 2016
Avon Books

In the first hilarious entry in her brand new series, USA Today bestselling author Maya Rodale re-invents a love story we all know and cherish.

Lord Darcy is the epitome of perfect

Lord Darcy is the quintessential Englishman: wealthy, titled, impossibly proper and horrified that a pack of Americans have inherited one of England’s most respected dukedoms. But his manners, his infamous self-restraint and better judgment fly out the window when he finds himself with the maddening American girl next door.

Lady Bridget is the opposite of perfect

Lady Bridget Cavendish has grand-but thwarted-plans to become a Perfect Lady and take the haute ton by storm. In her diary, Bridget records her disastrous attempts to assimilate in London high society, her adoration of the handsome rogue next door, her loathing of the Dreadful Lord Darcy and some truly scandalous secrets that could ruin them all.

They cannot stand each other-and yet they cannot stay away

It was loathing at first sight for Lady Bridget and Lord Darcy. But their paths keep crossing…and somehow involve kissing. When Lady Bridget’s diary goes missing, both Darcy and Bridget must decide what matters most of all-a sterling reputation or a perfectly imperfect love.

Don’t Miss More of the Cavendishes
Review (4.5 Stars): Lady Bridget’s Diary was an absolutely delightful romance that I devoured from beginning to end.  Lady Bridget was a fun, vibrant character that was thrown into London society with her sisters after learning that their family inherited a well-respected title.  I loved her personality and the way she interacted with others was a joy to watch.  When Lady Bridget and Lord Darcy meet, sparks fly, but not in a good way.  They immediately disliked one another but after a period of time, their mutual distaste turned into mutual attraction.


I didn’t like Lord Darcy at all in the beginning because he was exactly as Lady Bridget described.  Cold, impassive and a bore to be around.  It took some time for Lady Bridget to get him to crack a smile and his personality began to grow on me over the course of the book. There were scenes in this book that made me smile as it reminded me of a certain movie about another Bridget’s diary and finding love with someone you would never expect to.


This is the first book in Ms. Rodale’s new series and I am curious to read what happens to the rest of her family.  Ms. Rodale is such a talented author and I can’t wait to read some of her backlist until we get the next book in the series.
