Book Blurb: When Lady Fern Reynolds confided in a sympathetic houseguest that she was considering running away to London to escape betrothal to an unknown suitor, she did not expect him to offer her shelter. And she certainly did not imagine tumbling for him, the Viscount Sandford. But that was the least of her surprises, as she discovered the wedding was to go on as planned--and her groom was strangely familiar. . . Previously published in My Dashing Groom.

Review: The Quizzing Glass Bride is a cute short historical romance. Its only about 62 pages, so the perfect before bed read.

Lady Fern has problems. First, she has to wear spectacles, much to the chagrin of her mother and her lady's maid. Oh the horror! The poor thing!

Then she's been betrothed to Lord Warwick, but he hasn't even made himself known to her!

And then there's her parrot, Kate, a rather impertinent bird.

I loved how the Lord Warwick finds a way to get to know Fern, even after the disastrous dinner. Poor Fern was dressed horribly and had a tiara that weighed a ton, and no glasses, which as anyone short sighted can tell you, is as good as being blind.

If you are looking for a quick historical read, this is a great novella to try.
