Why this book?:

The title appealed to me.  I start singing it every time I see it...

"Dukes to the left of me/ Princes to the right/ Here I am/Stuck in the middle with you."


It's been awhile (I somehow missed writing this) so my memory on this one is fuzzy. 

Lady Poppy Smith-Barnes has had a long-standing crush on this prince.  In order to keep from being trapped in a loveless marriage when she knows the prince is the only one for her, she made up a fiancé - one Duke of Drummond.  Too bad he turned out to be real.  And to top it off, he finds her story rather convenient.

I found myself confused at the Impossible Bachelor thing.  Perhaps because I didn't read the first book in the series?  Other than that the story was generally okay.  Not extraordinary, but not bad.

The third book in the series, Cloudy with a Chance of Marriage, has a bookshop owner for a heroine so I may try that one.
