Read full description of the books:
The Charm School was a good book about an ugly duckling heroine who finds new life when she travels aboard a ship to Rio. The hero is a bit of a rakish daredevil who slowly falls for the heroine over the long ship journey. The story had a lot of great detail about life on a ship and really brought the setting and characters to life. The heroine's transformation from a plain, plump spinster who was too smart and horrible at social situations to a confident woman who believed in herself was the main part of the book. The romance was a little too off to the side for me, I would have liked to see the leads together more and a nice epilogue. Overall, I really enjoyed the story and the fun setting of the ship and Rio. I really liked the heroine and wanted a better life for her. I liked the fun-loving hero but would have liked to see him with the heroine more often. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting an exotic location and people who enjoy ugly duckling stories.
