The book was fine....but whoever proofed this book needs to work on their vocabulary a little bit. Breeches do not have "placards" on the front. A placard is a sign or notice, usually carried during a demonstration. I think the word the author was looking for is "placket". Not a huge error, but it comes up numerous times in the book and is irritating, as is all incorrect word usage. Other than that little irritation, the book was a decent read for its genre.
