The fourth and final book in the Finishing School series. The Picklemen plot is coming to a head and Sophronia must use all her training to try and figure out how to keep herself and her friends safe. A dinner party at Lord Akeldama's with the Dewan may lead to some answers but what do they really know and how much will they share?
Sophronia is definitely growing up and having to figure out how to navigate men better than she has previously as Lord Mersey and Soap are both vying for her affection in much more obvious ways that even SHE can't miss. She must always contemplate what her future will hold depending on which way she should chose to turn for she has many choices before her.
I found this to be a satisfying conclusion to the series. Most things were tied up with a very pretty, if deadly, little bow and those that weren't have more to do with some of the side characters and may be answered in time. In all, a fun series that was exactly what my overworked brain needed this summer.
