This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
After a few seasons without landing a husband, this season is Miss Amanda Bowen’s last chance or she is destined to be a spinster. Amanda doesn’t mind but her grandmother is determined to marry her off. To stop her grandmother’s plans, Amanda gets Sir Digby Knottswood to agree to pretend to court her. Sir Digby reluctantly agrees but his attention is soon drawn to Amanda’s cousin Lady Pamela Waring. Amanda finds herself drawn to Sir Digby’s nephew Keith, the Marquees of Saville – too bad he seems enamored with her stepmother Lurlene.

For the most part, “The Undoing of Lord Saville” is a nicely done Regency Romance by Maria Greene. I loved reading as the romance between Keith and Amanda unfolded and grew – the chemistry between the two is nicely done and I loved the witty conversations the two of them had. Green threw a well done obstacle in their path – Keith’s seeming continued obsession with Lurlene – and takes her time explaining Keith’s actions. When she does explain his actions, she does it quite well and makes Keith a more sympathetic character (even if he does have a bit of a cruel streak). The romance between Pamela and Digby was also well done (although Greene is a bit mean at times in her description of Digby) and adds a nice touch of humor to the book. The one weak spot in the book for me was Lurlene – there wasn’t one redeeming characteristic about her and it was hard to understand why both Keith and Amanda’s father – both intelligent men – fell for her.

“The Undoing of Lord Saville” is a nicely done Regency Romance. ( )

I enjoyed this book enough to keep reading. I have been reading regency romances quite a bit lately. They are my go to for stress so maybe I have just read too many, but this one was certainly predictable. To be fair, you almost always know who the main characters are and that they will end up with each other. However, you can almost guess right after meeting Lady Pamala that she will end up with Sir Digby. It was actually the other characters that made this book worth the read. I enjoyed their stories more than the main story. Amanda's younger step mother, her besotted father, her grandmother, cousin and great aunt. Those were some great characters. But the main story left some things to be desired... there was no actual drama, no actual events to cause the rifts... just weird misunderstandings and dialogue. And, unfortunately, witty harsh dialogue does not a romance novel make. ( )

This was an enjoyable, quick read. It held my interest to the end. It's been many years since I've read a regency romance.
The period vocabulary struck me as I was reading. (I had to look up the word "sibilant" as I could not remember what it meant.) There was not a lot of explanation about the customs of the day. A reader new to historical romance might not understand much about Almack's, Gretna Green, or social conduct of the characters.

All in all, it was a fun, light read. ( )

3/5 stars! Overall, this was a nice regency era romance that keeps your attention. I enjoyed the plot; although, very reminiscent of the Duke and I. The plot was somewhat predictable, but it had a few twists that kept me interested. I additionally enjoyed the banter between the characters, especially when the Dowager was involved. However, much of the dialogue was difficult to read and much too casual for the characters. For example, the use of the word “ain’t” was very common in this book and it just seemed out of place. Additionally, I received an unproofed copy of this book and the many grammatical errors took away from the reading of this book. Some editing needs to be done as well as some paragraphs would start out as Amanda’s thoughts (“she thought”) and then turn into Keith’s thoughts (“he thought”) half way through a paragraph. Overall, I think this book as a lot of potential and could be a much more enjoyable read with some editing.

I was given a free copy of this book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers and am leaving this review voluntarily. ( )

I concur with other reviewers that The Undoing of Lord Sanville is an easy read and is indeed, sweet. The banters between characters is entertaining, but overall the plot is very predictable and the ending is pretty obvious right from the beginning. This made it a good quick weekend read.

I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review. ( )
