Miranda Hawthorne is approaching spinsterhood with a less-than enthusiastic outlook. And with her sister’s season the probability of Miranda meeting Mister Right is drastically reduced. That is until her childhood habit of writing to her brother’s childhood chum (journal entries that are never sent) inadvertently finds itself in the post and on it’s way to that man. Chagrined by her brother’s new valet who had the audacity to send the letter but drawn to his odd ways, Miranda embarks on a road of discovery, disappointment and maybe love.
I. Loved. This. Book. With an interesting mix of history, mystery and espionage I was hooked from page one. Miranda’s spunky personality,the twists and turns that had me suspecting all the wrong people, the action – everything. It was perfect. I’m finding myself drawn more and more to the Regency Period novels being released. They just keep getting better. (While not a favorite period, Jane Austen is more to blame than anything for this interest. Good job, Jane.) Great story, and characters.
