Book Review | WattPad |The Debutante (Season series #2/3) by Miss Katey

Book Information Post

With the Queens dissaproval aimed squarely 
in her direction will she weather the 
storm and win the prince?

This is the second book in a four book season 
series and it tells the story of Libby's time
at court as a Debutante for the winter Season. 
But just because shes there as a debutante now 
rather than a attendant to a debutante as she was 
in the first book doesnt mean she has an easier
time of it, infact if anythiing its even harder because 
the competiton for the crown is even 
tougher than it was last time as both the 
Princes are taking part. 

Again as with the first book When I read the 
synopsis for this book on WattPad I was sure 
that I was going to love it, even more so 
beacuse I'd already read the first book in 
the seres The Season and now i've read the book 
I can say I wasn't dissapointed, thus the 4 out 
of 5 star rating. And because of all the afore 
mentioned things I have to say that this is a 
book that I will both reccomend to others and 
buy it as a gift for anyone I think would 
enjoy it.

It was great being back in Libby and Prince 
Andrews love story because they are so well 
suited that its what you could call a match made
in Heaven. Again the authors writing was so captivating 
and evocative that as a reader you 
feel as though your experiencing the events along 
with characters. One of the debutantes that we meet 
in this book is Pricess Dulcina of Ardalone (learn more about her and her family in The Rebel Prince) 
who expects to be "crowned" the next queen of 
Pretania at the emd of the season thanks to a 
Marriage Treaty that was signed by her Father and
the King of Pretania, surfice to say shes not 
happy when she looses out to Libby. 

I loved the fact that Libby was attending this 
seasons as a debutante as apposed to a debutantes attendant, as she was in the first book, she was 
still as singleminded, determined, intoreant of 
the other debutantes simpering and backstabbing 
(as well as the general backstabbing within the royalcourt, and doggedly honest as she was in the first book. The strengthening of the relationships between Libby and the Prince and Princess as well 
as the development of the relationship between 
the young prince and Prince Andrews best friend 
were great.

The one dharacter whos behaviour I couldn't make 
sense of at all while reading this book was the 
King, because it just seemed so out of character 
for him. It baffles me still furher now I've read 
the Heiress Queen, the prequel to the series, as it seems completely out of the relms of what you'd 
expect from how he was portrayed in this book.

This book was so captivating that from cover to 
cover it just couldn't put it down and as soon as 
soon as I'd finished reading this one I immediately strated reading the next book in the series The 
Rebel Prince (unfortunatley not yet a completed book on WaatPad), because I needed more more more.

Libby Marks-Whelan is decidedly not a lady. Kicked out of nearly every finishing school in the country, she's shocked when her demure, straight-laced cousin Ella invites her to the royal court as an attendant during her debutante season. What Ella fails to realize, however, is that Libby's brand of mischief is exactly the kind of distraction Prince Andrew is looking for during his inaugural season as an eligible bachelor.

This is the first book in a four book season series, prequel 
The Heiress Queen,and it tells the story of Ella's debutante year of the Season with her young
finishing school drop out cousin, expelled from everyone in Pretania, Libby Marks-Whelan as
her attendant. It tells of all the goings on in the

Thank you to the Author publisher and Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for An honest unbiased review.




Read from may 9th to 17th 2017



Lying on a riverbank on a lazy summer’s afternoon – 23rd June 2016, to be precise – Alice spots a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum. Following him down a rabbit-hole, she emerges into a strange new land, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts... She meets such characters as the Corbynpillar, who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone; Humpty Trumpty, perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for; the Cheshire Twat, who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining; and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness, who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit. Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense?

I would like to start this book review by thanking  the Author, Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to read this well written, laugh out loud book in exchange for an honest unbiased review. My opinions of this book have not been influenced in anyway by the fact that I received it for review purposes.

The book tells the story of what happens to Alice when she spots & follows a a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum down a rabbit hole on the 23rd of June 2017. It follows her journey through the  strange new land she emerges in, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts… During her journey through the strange new land of Brexit she meets characters such as Corbynpillar (who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone); Humpty Trumpty (perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for); the Cheshire Twat (who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining); and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit). Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense.

I loved the authors satirical twist on Lewis Carole’s story Alice in Wonderland as well as his take on the Key players in Brexit including the idiocy of some of the things they said during the campaign.

This is a book that came at exactly the right time for me as I had recently read lots of books with some hard subjects in them and although this was about a very topical heavy subject due to its satirical nature I gave me some much needed light relief. It was also a very quick and easy read.

Although this is a book will date quickly due to the nature of its content it is still a book that I may re-read in the future as well as recommend to others and buy for people I know who I think may enjoy it.

It is for the reasons above that I have given this book a 5 star rating.

Jesse-Ray Lewis, 19, enters a West Virginia "safe house" with few possessions beyond the kerchiefs that identify him as a gang member. An aged-out foster child, he lands in Bluefield, where a charity gives him food. What follows is the personal, dramatic story of two people who intervene in the life of a homeless, drug-abusing teen with a background of violence and neglect. In their next-door suite called the safe house, they impose three rules: "No alcohol or drugs. You have to work. You have to go to school." Jesse-Ray expresses gratitude for shelter and a middle-aged couple concerned with his welfare. But what does he want? The couple struggle to determine his true motives, especially after he admits being high on meth at their first meeting. At night he writes verse reflecting trauma and violence, shame and love, even despair. Author Andrea Brunais sees more than just a street-smart boy who can write. She sees a soul who can be saved from a downward spiral. But will Jesse-Ray accept the help of strangers, as glimmers of hope expressed in his writings suggest? Will the couple succeed in steering him toward a new life? And how will the ordeal transform everyone?

Ghost Moon




Bartholomew Miller




Florida Keys

In the early nineteenth century, pirates and privateers still wreaked havoc in the Caribbean. Bartholomew Miller had been one of them. After years of plying the seas for England as a privateer, he finally found a home and love on Bone Island off the Florida coast.

I started reading this book as soon as I’d finished the last book in the trilogy that this is the prequel for because I’d enjoyed it and the other books in the trilogy so much. This is a book that although it wasn’t a necessity for me to read it as it was only a short prequel novella about the pirate ghost from the trilogies life and death so enabled me as the reader to get an insight into his life.

Although this book was only a short novella Heather had still written with as much detail as she does in any of her books. The plot and characters in the book were really well-developed and believable for the shortness of the book. By the time I had read the book I really felt I knew Bartholomew like a I would a friend what with what I’d learnt about him in the main books of the trilogy. It was also really interesting getting all be it a brief glimpse into what life and Key West was like in the time when he lived.

The research that Heather had done about the time period and place during the period came through in the fact that it really felt like you were living in that time along with the characters.It was also great seeing how Bartholomew’s relationships/friendships developed.

All in all i loved this book and am immensely glad that I have read it.I would love to hear what any of you out there who’ve read it and the main trilogy thought of them so feel free to leave a comment.

Susan Erickson




Meridith Whitson, Nina Whiston, Anya Whiston, Stacey




Alaska, America



Sometimes when you open the door to your mother's past, you find your own future . . . Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard; the other followed a dream and travelled the world to become a famous photo journalist. But when their beloved father falls ill, these two estranged women will find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters. On his deathbed, their father extracts one last promise from the women in his life. It begins with a story that is unlike anything the sisters have heard before - a captivating, mysterious love story that spans sixty-five years and moves from frozen, war torn Leningrad to modern-day Alaska. The vividly imagined tale brings these three women together in a way that none could have expected. Meredith and Nina will finally learn the secret of their mother's past and uncover a truth so terrible it will shake the foundation of their family and change who they think they are. Every once in a while a writer comes along who navigates the complex and layered landscape of the human heart. For this generation, it's Kristin Hannah. Mesmerizing from the first page to the last, Winter Garden is an evocative, lyrically written novel that will long be remembered.

In this post I will be discussing my feelings and views on the book along with sharing the books information.

This amazingly evocative book tells the story of two sisters learning about their mothers past following their father’s death and so coming to understand why she’d been so emotionally withdrawn from them throughout their lives. It is told by way of an extremely mysterious “fairytale” love story that the mother tells and has been telling the sisters all their lives but she never finished it while they were growing up.

I heard about this book on JenTalksAudiobooks a Bookktube channel on YouTube when she was entrusting about it in a review. She is a booktuber who I know when she recommends books and I read them I will enjoy them as much as she did.

Thanks to how much I enjoyed this book and how well written it was I can honestly say that Kristin has become an auto read author. I can also say that due to Susan Erickson’s (narrator) skill at voicing characters and conveying feelings she is going to be an auto listen narrator for me.

All the characters and the plot were well-developed and believable. Which meant that once you got past the first 6 chapters I was totally engrossed in the story. The three women in this book were really strong, determined and independent women who as a reader you cannot help but fall in love with.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoy books that fall in to the genres in the  contemporary historical areas and this book fits well in to. those
