Prada and Prejudice

Prada and Prejudice
by Mandy Hubbard

Callie is tired of being a clumsy geek-girl. So during a school trip to London she buys her ticket to popularity: a pair of real Prada pumps. But then she wobbles on the cobblestones, trips in her too-high heels, and conks her head. When she comes to, it's the year 1815!

Luckily she meets kindhearted Emily, who mistakes Callie for a long-lost friend. Sparks soon ignite -- of the nice and not-so-nice variety -- between Callie and Alex, the handsome but totally arrogant Duke of Harksbury. Too bad Alex seems to have something sinister up his ruffled sleeve...

Can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, win a kiss from Alex, and prove to herself that she's more than just a loud-mouth klutz before her time in the past is up?

This was a really sweet, fun, light read! I loved the descriptions of the fashions, the dances, and the Duke's home in 1815. Emily, Alex, and Victoria (the dowager duchess) were all charming their own ways, and Callie was a girl I could really root for! My favorite part, aside from watching the romance build :P, was seeing Callie become sure of herself and then apply that newfound confidence when she returns home! A great read!
