Review of Ridiculous By D.L. Carter


By D.L. Carter

Millicent and her sisters have been taken in by Mr. North, a rich miser who treats them as servants and expects them to fulfill his every whim.  Although life with him is insufferable, at least the girls aren't living in the workhouse.  However, when the skinflint dies, the girls face a conundrum.  Without Mr. North’s support, they will be tossed into the street.

Millicent dreams up a fantastic solution.  She cuts off her hair, dons her cousin’s clothes, and becomes Mr. North.  She finds that she enjoys the freedom of living as a man, and all goes well – until she meets a charming, wealthy duke who wants to be Mr. North’s best friend.  Millicent is dying to be more than just friends with the duke, but she fears she’ll lose him forever if she reveals that she’s not a man.

Millicent’s adventures as Mr. North in London high society are absolutely entertaining.  Yes, it’s a bit absurd that not one person ever suspects that this funny-looking man is actually a passably attractive woman, but seriously, this is a romance novel and a sometimes you just have to embrace a bizarre premise with open arms in order to enjoy the happy fantasy behind it.  I absolutely loved every page of this book and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Five stars.
