The second entry in Feather's Matchmaker trilogy (following The Bachelor List) is a charming romp through 19th-century London featuring the Duncan sisters, who are trying to hold their family together financially by running a matchmaking service and producing the suffragist scandal sheet The Mayfair Lady. When the paper is sued for libel, Prudence Duncan enlists the help of fierce barrister Sir Gideon Malvern. Gideon is convinced their case is hopeless, but he can't deny the attraction he feels for stubborn, strong-willed Prue. Because she can't afford his fees, Gideon agrees to argue the case if she finds him a suitable bride, but before long, Gideon finds himself as involved with Prue as he is with the Mayfair Lady case.

The Bride Hunt is the 2nd in the series (The Bachlor List 1st) and was intertaining. It was just as good as the first. This is a story about 3 independent sisters that decide that they do not want to get married but help others find their mates for a fee.

The intriguing and lively Duncan sisters that were introduced in The Bachelor List have returned in The Bride Hunt. Even though this book focuses on Prue, the middle sister, all three sisters play key roles in the story and all keep it amusing, interesting, sensual and lively, while they fight to keep their newspaper, The Mayfair Lady, from being destroyed in a lawsuit. Readers who haven't already read the Bachelor List, the first book in this trilogy, will be sure to run out and grab it up after finishing The Bride Hunt. And readers who have read the first two books in this series will be anxious to read The Wedding Game, Chastity's story. I know I am. :)

Enjoyed the series - light romance

The is the second book in the trilogy even though I've read the other two. I actually found Gideon more enjoyable than Prudence. He had a fun side to him while Prudence was just that, a little too uptight. I wished Feather did more with Gideon's ex and daughter. But overall it was a decent, fun romance.
