If you've read and loved The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, I would highly recommend this book. If you've never read The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, I would highly recommend this book and then suggest you pick up that one as well.

Lee has a wicked wit that shines through in Felicity's voice, while she still addresses some issues new to this installment. Here, Felicity Montague has left home to pursue her dream of becoming a physician. Unfortunately for her, it is the 1700s and she is a woman. Unwilling to give up on her dream, Felicity is determined to find her idol and become his assistant. High jinks ensue.

A well-paced adventure with a touch of fantasy, The Lady's Guide is the perfect story for people who were told they couldn't do something when they could, people who were told they couldn't do something because of their genders, and all the people who enjoy a story with pirates.

The much awaited sequel to Lee’s first novel, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, the Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy was everything I could have ever wished for and so much more! The small glimpses into the the lives of Monty and Percy were much appreciated, however Felicity’s story captivated me all by itself. It was the perfect blend of historic fact and wonderful fiction, holding my attention for hours on end. The commentary on women’s rights in the past was so culturally relevant to today, yet nothing felt forced. I fell in love with each new character that was introduced and I hope there is a sequel so I don’t have to say goodbye to everyone. This book was perfect in every way and I would recommend it to everyone! 5/5! @nickreads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This sequel to The Gentleman's Guide absolutely lives up to its predecessor by featuring Felicity along with several other amazing women as they travel to Zurich and Algiers to discover and then protect a long-hidden secret. Plus, pirates, sea monsters, and the rejection of traditional gender roles? Yes, please!
