Exhausted, I lay in bed and watched the sky lighten from indigo to a soft blue-grey as I considered the matter that consumed my thoughts. I told Annie when she brought me my morning tea. If you like, miss, although I’ve often found that affairs of the heart can’t often be analyzed. Well, we shall try. You will admit that I have been unusually sheltered during my years with Father. With no one who could even remotely be considered a suitor.

I've been a fan of Katie MacAlister for many years for both her historical novels and her paranormal ones. I was interested in this one due to the fact that it deals with a time period not usually touched on by fiction authors. The verbal sparring between Cassandra and Griffin is great to read and her ability to stand up against opposition from her family and friends in regard to her choice to support the suffrage movement is admirable. For the most part I enjoyed reading this story. It had the authors signature tone that I always find enjoyable.

However there were a few things that pulled from my enjoyment of this book. First, I am frustrated by the number of people that seemed to be aware of the massive abuse the was heaped on the main heroine during her childhood and yet did nothing to stop it. They just sit back and applaud her ability to "survive it." I know it's probably a sign of the times she grew up in but it's still frustrating in a book about bucking society standards. Second, the heroine, for all her smarts is at times extraordinarily DENSE. The number of times some sort of calamity befalls her and yet she continues to walk home alone or go out without informing people of her plans or taking someone with her as protection just frustrates me. There is a distinct difference between being an independent woman and being a fool. She fell into the fool category just a few too many times for my taste.

Also, there were several story lines that seemed to go nowhere. Emma, the best friend of Cassandra, just seemed to fade into the background, or rather onto a quick trip to Paris. There needed to be more back story where Robert and his brother were concerned in order to understand why his brother would not want him to succeed. And the story line of Annie and the coachman or Annie and the man with the gold tooth just seemed to go nowhere. It would have been nice to see a happy ending for her as well.

The final thing was that I would have very much liked an excerpt at the end of the book giving a history of the actual suffrage movement and when they were finally successful in gaining the rights they had been denied so long. If your going to use such a significant piece of history, then give it the proper tribute it deserves. Overall not a bad book - just needed more attention paid to it.

Alright, about this book: it isn't like her paranormal works, at all. It is much closer in tone to MacAlister's other historical novels, which are comedies as well as historical romances.

I was, at first, iffy about Griffin, the male lead. This might be because Cassandra narrates and she first encounters him at a Women's Suffrage Union protest and sees him as mocking her and her cause - but their relationship develops over the course of the book. It develops through the initial fighting to mutual admiration and continued arguments to mutual stubborn denial to, eventually, a mutual willingness to compromise.

I find Cassandra to be very relatable - resourceful, independent, and clever, if somewhat naive; MacAlister tells us enough about her past that her naivety is justified. She has a life outside romance, which is very refreshing - she is dedicated to women's suffrage, she has a few good friends (Emma and Robert), she is apparently independently wealthy, wears sumptuous clothing because it pleases her, and works in charity functions - all in addition to being the female lead in a romance novel. She is also somewhat genre-savvy - the fourth wall is intact but referenced.

I wish Emma's character had been more developed - about halfway through the book, she almost entirely disappears.

The depiction of the early suffragettes is wonderful - there are several ideas about how to achieve the goal, there's factional infighting, there's disruptions and meetings and protests and planning. They are so very human that it's difficult not to relate to them - even Molly Greene's faction. The book starts with one of their protests, it shows their meetings and rallies and arrests and the vitriolic public opinion of suffragettes, and Cassandra's involvement with the movement is amazing. She has emotional highs and lows with her dedication to the WSU as much as she does with Griffin.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot is intricate - nothing is an accident - the characters well fleshed out, the emotions well portrayed. I urge you to at least read the sample - and then go on to read the whole book, because it's amazing.

I thought this was a very fun historical. The story line isn't the same tired one-note that so many English historicals have employed for years. It's funny and has a great heroine who I identified with even though her story is hundreds of years ago. It is a different tone than her paranormals (which I also like) but is suited to the book. I recommend this one to the Regency Historical Romance buffs out there that are looking for something a little bit different, but that will still be a comfortable read for them.

Katie MacAlister's new book, Suffragette in the City is a wonderful book. It has mystery, history, and romance all combined with a bit of humor to make a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend this book to anyone who likes Katie's books and anyone who likes history.

I enjoyed Suffragette In The City. As in her other books, Katie MacAlister has created a strong, quirky heroine in Cassandra Whitney. As a 'new world woman'in Victorian England, Cassandra explores her ideas of freedom for women by taking a lover and aiding the suffragette movement. She fights conventions and ruffians who kidnap her and try to murder her lover. A very fun read especially for the Kindle price.

I was disappointed in this book from the first chapter. It would have been nice to have an introduction to the S. Movement to help the reader understand the theme of the story. It was confusing and the characters did not mix well together.
I am still a Katie MacAlister fan, but I think that I will stay with the other Series and stay away from historical fiction.

as always the story line and characters are excellent. however, the editor and proofreader should be ashamed
of themselves. the very mistake leaden text really interfered with the enjoyment of this book.
