The format is five stories, which overlap in time and characters, with a running thread of comment from Lady Whistledown's column. Ms Quinn supplies the Column and one of the stories, and three other authors contribute an individual story each. I like Ms Quinn's style, but in a multiple-author offering there are usually one or two that disappoint. However, in this book all the authors were quite readable. ( I had not read anything by the other three before.)
There are a few references in passing to characters in other Julia Quinn books (always fun for a Ms Quinn afficionado to pick up), but mostly the characters are quite new. They were all pretty well rounded, and I happily joined in their romantic trysts, although Charlotte could have been a little less proper!
It is not a 'memorable' book, but is light-hearted and an easy read which could easily be returned to at a later date. I would definitely recommend it on this basis.
