Partners now in marriage and in trade, Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have finally returned from abroad to set up housekeeping in London. But merging their respective collections of gadgets, pets, and servants leaves little room for the harried newlyweds themselves, let alone Brisbane's private enquiry business. Among the more unlikely clients: Julia's very proper brother, Lord Bellmont, who swears Brisbane to secrecy about his case.

Trevelyan d'Augustin and Lady Callista Talliafaire were secret sweethearts, until the day her father dismissed him with a whip across the face. Ten years and three jiltings later, shy Callie is resigned to a quiet village life as the late earl's spinster daughter. But now Trev has returned from his estates in France, upending everything, dragging her into adventures, stealing Hubert the prize-winning bull, and flinging Callie's heart into mayhem again.

It's 1935, and Maggie Ross loves her life among the stallholders in Kelvin Market, where her husband, Tony, has a bric-a-brac stall and where she lives, with her young family, above Mr. Goldman's tailoring shop. But when, one fine spring day, her husband disappears into thin air, her world collapses.

I really loved this book. It is set in the 1930s in London, and the characters are all ordinary people -- so different from "Regency" novels. The characters are all very likeable and very real, and the story is compelling and makes you want to keep reading until you find out how it comes out.
