    1 thought on “The Last Debutante”

    1. I loved this novel!This was a truly perfect Historical Romance, where I can't find any fault. Julia London is a real talented author, especially with her Historicals. The Last Debutante is no exception, every HR-lover will be satisfied with it. The story begins with Jamie Campbell being shot at by the grandmother of the heroine, Daria. Her Grandmother, Mamie, is trying to finish him off while he is bedridden, when Daria arrives to visit with her Grandmother for some time. A funny and quirky begi [...]

    2. Llegué al final de la serie y debo admitir que me ha gustado, éste último libro, me ha gustado. La lástima es que ésta serie de Julia London es de lo más mediocre que he leído y sólo salvo el 2º libro y éste 4º. Normalmente la autora no me decepciona con el libro que cierra sus series, pero a pesar de que éste libro está bien, no le llega ni de lejos a "El amante secreto" o "Escándalo en Palacio".En ésta conclusión sabemos qué ocurrió finalmente en Hadley Green en 1793, pero de [...]

    3. What a delightful addition to the Secrets of Hadley Green series! Daria Bobcock is the last debutante of Hadley Green. Her day begins and ends like most English ladies, with teas and parties, but as she sees all of her friends enjoying their martial lives and babies, she grows restless and thirsts for a meaning to her life, a purpose that will fulfill and define her. Having no wanted martial prospects in the vicinity, and with her parents' refusal to grant her a Season in London, she is eager to [...]

    4. Jamie Campbell, laird of his clan, goes to confront a crazy old English woman who "stole" a thousand pounds from a crazy old man from his clan. But she meets him at the door with a blunderbuss. Threats are exchanged, and long story short, she sorta accidentally shoots him. [image error]Daria Babcock is the titular last debutante of Hadley Green, in that every other gal she knows is married or a scandalous ho. She's suffering from a bad case of "I'll die a virgin" when a letter arrives from her g [...]

    5. "The Last Debutante" is the fourth book in the The Secrets of Hadley Green series. Starring Daira Babcock, a spirited albeit sheltered English Rose, who at 21 finds herself still unmarried and without prospect. When her beloved grandmother writes home from Scotland, requesting that someone send her much needed funds; Daria jumps at the chance for adventure.This is a wonderful book that though part of a series, has a story that has no trouble standing alone. Daria is a leading lady who manages to [...]

    6. En realidad sería 3.5 pero me da rabia que no se puedan poner.No me esperaba este tipo de argumento en esta sagay lo cierto es que estoy muy saturada de la trama de las novelas en las que aparecen los fornidos hombres con faldas a cuadros pese a todo, resulta una lectura muy dulce, porque la relación entre ellos es "normal", ella es un encanto, todo positivismo y a él, le resulta imposible luchar contra eso. Muchos (demasiados) de los tópicos de estas novelas aparecen en la trama. Pero bueno [...]

    7. "Leap, lass. You’ll either fall or fly, but if you donna leap, you will waste your time on this earth. Be brave, Daria. Be courageous.”

    8. This is the first book I have read from author Julia London. It was the picture on the front, the title, the summary, and all the positive reviews. In addition, the twist of my favorite English Regency genre takes place in Scotland, not England. I’ve been there twice and could see this setting as being just as fascinating for a story. Not disappointed - it was a fun PG-13 read!Lovely Daria, embarrassed and unfortunate in her eyes, is the last unspoken for girl in the village of Hadley Green an [...]

    9. Enjoyable story about a spinster with no prospects who stumbles upon a taciturn Scotsman living in a castle but with no family bonding to speak of. Slowly her generous personality touches all who live there and she brings closeness and love back within its walls.Into this mix was a little bit of a mystery and family secret, which made for an interesting story.I enjoyed this for the most part, but I found the heroine a little bit too naive for my taste. Also, the batty grandmother got on my nerve [...]

    10. Loved Laird Jamie, Daria was extremely likable, supporting characters were greatbut, the "mystery?" was a bit much as were Daria's parents and grandmama. I would have preferred the ending/epilogue to be more fully flushed out, it seemed to be too neatly tied up for me.

    11. Daria Babcock is tired of being the last debutante left in Hadley Green. All of her friends are not only married, but also having babies and enjoying their deliriously happy lives. When her family receives a plea for help from her Grandmama in Scotland, Daria leaps at the chance to go and visit her beloved Mamie. Finally, she has a chance to get out of Hadley Green and have a little adventure of her own.Laird Jamie Campbell cannot figure out what the crazy Englishwoman is up to. First, the old w [...]

    12. Another wonderful historical romance by Julia London! Daria Babcock, an English lady, is surprised to find a naked man recovering from a gunshot wound in her grandmother's cottage in Scotland. Her grandmother tells her that he found the man in the woods and brought him to her cottage to heal. However, Daria doesn't believe that she is getting the whole story or the truth of it. It is also confusing that her grandmother keeps him drugged and unconscious. When he finally regains consciousness he k [...]

    13. It pissed me off. Would like to think author knew what thy were writing about - but at one point they had a character being compared to a MOCKINGBIRD. Well, excuse me for being Miss Picky but mockingbirds? In Scotland? In the early 19th Century?And then there's my normal gripe with this genre. Current authors seem to feel they HAVE to have at least one gratuitous sex scene, for preference they make it a pre-marital one, to show that the Heroine is Brave and Doesn't Care for the Conventions of He [...]

    14. Their relationship doesn't seem to take off until the end. I did enjoy the way the book was completed (disregarding the epilogue) more than most, even if it was rushed a bit. Daria and Mamie were irritating. Mamie was OBVIOUSLY hiding something and Daria didn't pursue it enough at the get-go. Daria was whiney and spoiled but she still managed to befriend the unbefriendable with relative ease it seemed. I thought Jamie was smoking and I loved everything he was in. I'd like to read about Jamie's b [...]

    15. I might have given this a higher rating if it wasn't a complete rip-off of "Outlander." I understand that there might be similar stories floating around, but all the elements were the same: kidnapped English brown haired heroine gets brought to the laird's home (who has been shot). The names are even the same: Jamie, Hamish, Dougal, etc. The laird wants to marry the "Sassenach" (and calls her such), but cannot turn away from the responsibility of his clan, was meant to be laird, etc etc. Likeabl [...]

    16. I quite enjoyed this book A handsome Highlander and naive English rose. There was a mystery to solve and the angst is shot-lived. Easy, enjoyable, all I ask for in a good book!

    17. this review was originally published at DearAuthorDear Ms. London,I have read all the books in your The Secrets of Hadley Green series. (OK, I didn't read the Christmas novella.) I seem to enjoy every other one. The first, The Year of Living Scandalously, failed to grab my attention. I liked the second, The Revenge of Lord Eberlin (my review is here) and actively disliked the third, The Seduction of Lady X. This one, The Last Debutante, is a lighter read than the two that preceded it. [...]

    18. Please note that this book likely would have gotten more than three stars if the dreaded reading slump hadn't set in when I was 1/4 of the way from finishing. It sat on my bed side for over three months before I just gave up on the idea of reading it as by then I had lost interest. But what I did read, I absolutely loved. One thing I greatly appreciated was that our main couple did not yet sleep together over 3/4 of the way in, which means a great deal of time was spent on developing plot and re [...]

    19. This was the first book I've read in the series, and though I suspected some of the characters mentioned might have meant more if I had read the first 3 in the series, it totally worked as a stand alone book. I gave it a 3, though perhaps I felt it was a 3.5, but I rounded down due to a few graphic sex scenes I needed to skim through. I don't need graphic details to enjoy a book, in fact, I prefer innuendo and implied contact. especially in Regency romanceswhere the rules of female conduct are s [...]

    20. Cute Story LineThis was a cute, funny and romantic story. The characters were brought to life with each and every stroke of the authors pen. I would definitely recommend this book to a novice.

    21. I picked this up at the library as a book on tape to fill a gap. It was part of a series (is anything not?) and large elements of the plot depended on that. Still, it didn't do badly as a stand alone. More sweet than sexy, I liked the dignity of the heroine.

    22. If ever a book should be called a romp, it's this one. It's such good fun. The characters are all quite lively, as is expected from a Julia London novel. If you're vacillating on whether to read this, just do it, and thank me later.

    23. Love it!I honestly love all of Julia Londons books. I have yet to read one that i dont love. Read this one!

    24. Story: 2 starsNarration: 3 starsI can admit that I have wanted to read this book since first seeing the blurb in the Julia London newsletter. I hadn’t read but one of her other Hadley Green series but the blurb stuck in my mind and wouldn’t let go. Learning it was going to be simultaneously released in audio, narrated by one of my favorite narrators EVER–Justine Eyre–sealed the deal.However, it did not turn out as well as I had anticipated. I had several problems with and I’m not sure [...]

    25. auf Wiedersehen Hadley GreenSo we bid a fond farewell to Julia London's Hadley Green series, and I have to say right up front that The Last Debutante is given short shrift. It has the feel of an author eager to move on to her next project, especially the ending, which has a very rushed feel and a quick wrapping of loose ends. I was disappointed that I was not allowed to savor The Last Debutante.Daria, our heroine, is off on an adventure! She is the last unmarried girl in Hadley Green, so she mus [...]

    26. Let me start by saying I really do love me a good romance novel and I have really always enjoyed such novels by Julia London.Until I bought The Last Debutante and about a quarter of the way through, I was ready to climb the walls.Herelet me explain.This is the final book in the series, The Secrets of Hadley Green and that’s really a good thing.Daria Babcock is the last debutante in all of Hadley Green – and she’s 21 years old—that’s practically on the shelf during the Regency era in En [...]

    27. Daria Babcock’s story starts like any other. She is the last debutante left, out of all her friends, with not even a possibly prospect for marriage. She is lonely and saddened by the idea of not being a wife or a mother, and longs to find some purpose in her life. When an unexpected letter from her grandmother comes, all the way from Scotland, stating financial problems, Daria jumps at the idea of taking a break from her life at Hadley Green and searching for an adventure in Scotland. Little d [...]

    28. Unsurprising to no one, I accidentally started the Secrets of Hadley Green series on the last book in the series, The Last Debutante. This did leave to a little confusion on my part with some secondary characters but for the most part I really enjoyed the Scottish exploits of Daria, the last debutante. With all of her friends of Hadley Green marrying and starting families, Daria is starting to feel a little lost. She has always wanted a family of her own but hasn’t found any possible candidate [...]

    29. I ended up liking this one more than I thought I would, even when I was almost 50% through it. Everyone was so dis-likable to Darria at first that it was kind of a trial to read it. But nothing was a predictable as I predicted and the story ended up charming me. Still don't like Darria's grandmother or her parents for that matter, but I kind of like that 'love' didn't fix everything. Darria is unhappy with her boring existence as an almost on the shelf debutante. She thinks to shake things up by [...]
