Defying the Earl by Anabelle Bryant

Wilhelmina Montgomery needs to help support herself and her sister after the carriage accident that took their parents lives and injured her sister.  She has hit on the idea of being a matchmaker.  Valerian St. David, Earl of Dashwood also needs to support himself and his brother, but that is because his father and now his brother have gambled away every penny the family ever had.  He decides to be a matchbreaker.  When Whimsey is the one that has been ruining her hard work, she needs to stop him before he ruins everything she worked so hard to accomplish.

I really wanted to like this novel based on the synopsis.  But, after starting the to read, I did not like the characters.  It could have been that both Whimsy and Valerian were from "meager" circumstances was just harped on.   I just did not like the characters.  I found Whimsy too Pollyanna for my taste.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
