Book Review: The Season by Sophia Holloway

Title: The Season
Author: Sophia Holloway
Publisher: Allison & Busby
Publication Date: 23 June 2022
Pages: 238
Format: eBook - EPUB
Genre: Historical Romance
Source: ARC via NetGalley

Henrietta Gaydon is making her debut in London society for the Season, but her popularity and apparent ease disguises the fact that she is out of her depth and that she dreads the objective of finding a husband. She longs for home, her father and Lord Henfield, who she has always treated as an older brother.

Charles Henfield stopped thinking of Henrietta like a sister when she was sixteen. And he is determined to try his luck with her in London. Mistakes and misunderstandings, the complication of a feud between mamas, and Henrietta’s no longer fraternal feelings for Henfield, all conspire to make this a Season to remember.


The Season was a pleasing Regency romance with an engaging principal couple in Henrietta and Charles. It was fun to follow Henrietta as she attempt to navigate London life and budding romance, and likewise to see Charles grapple with his own feelings and uncertainty over how to win her hand. The pacing was good and there were no glaring anachronisms, which made me happy. I would definitely read further such books by this author in the future. It gets a solid 4 stars from me.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
