The Season is definitely one of the best books I've read in a long time. I love mysteries, romance and historical fiction, so this book is a perfect fit. Alex is not like most girls living in 1815 - she doesn't want to be courted or attend any balls or dances. She's smart and funny, a perfect combination for some witty dialogue. All of the characters meshed well together, from her friends, three older brothers, even the villains of the story. And I must mention the love interest Gavin. He was such a great character: very handsome, very romantic and believed in the same things as Alex. Even though the mystery aspect of this book could have been better fleshed out, The Season kept me flipping pages to find out what happened next.
8 out of 10.
