Debut Author Review: Decorum

Available March 31: Decorum, a debut novel by Kaaren  Christopherson

***3.5/5 stars – Liked it to the edge of love- a stage 1 crush.

An evolving New York society love story gives Decorum a Downton-Abbey feel.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like Downton Abbey
  • If you like turn of the century and reading about women who change with it

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall
  • 1/5 steaminess


Don’t let the ugly cover scare you off – Decorum is a fascinating and culturally fascinating novel. Based in 1890s New York, Decorum, as the name implies, stories the scandalous inner workings of high society during the time through wealthy, independent Francesca Lund. Nearly alone and heartbroken from losing her family – now Francesca is engaged. As she struggles to understand her fiance and navigates New York society, her independence emerges. First-time author Kaaren Christopherson portrays the struggles of smart, independent Francesca in a changing society. If Downton Abbey had a US version, Decorum would be it – with it’s evolving society and merging of classes and subtle love story.
