The Accidental Duchess by Jessica Benson is a fun novel to read. This story is entertaining with a good dose of humour. The journey Harry and Gwen are taking is rough, their relationship starts on the wrong foot, but along the way they learn to trust and love each together. When finally the rightful groom arrives, Gwen knows she doesn’t love him; the only man for her is Harry.

This novel is written in the first person, but I didn’t find it confusing, once you get used to it, the novel is easy to read. The only confusing part was, the switch parts of the two brothers.
