For her entire eighteen years of life, Imogene Chively has was told what to do by her overpowering father. After a successful London season with a suitor, Imogene wanted to relax in the country and sketch. Still, being shy and not wanting to disappoint her father, Imogene invited her suitor and brother to stay for a few weeks. Wondering if this would be her only suitor, Imogene tried her best to get to know Mr. Steeple, but she feared that the only Steeple brother for her is Ben, her suitor's younger brother. Charming Ben Steeple has one goal in life, to become a great architect, but his only problem is he can not draw. When his older brother becomes Imogene's suitor, a great artist, he asks for art lessons. As the pair become closer and closer, it becomes evident that there is more to worry about than their feeling towards each other when Ben keeps getting into accidents.
I loved Suitors and Sabotage so much! When the characters were sad, I was sad; when they were happy, I was happy. The author made me feel what the characters felt, and this shows that the author is a very great writer. You don't find a lot of authors that bring a person into the story. At times I was very annoyed with Ben because he wasn't always kind to Imogene when he liked her, but he made up for his rudeness at the end of the book. Suitors and Sabotage also had a bit of mystery in it surrounding Ben. The whole book, I was trying to figure out who was trying to hurt him, and I was happy to see that I was right about the person. I hope you guys all read this book and have as much fun with it as I did!
Things to mention: There are descriptions of wanting other people, but NOT in a very inappropriate way.
