Publisher's Summary

Nothing's as fun as other people's secrets.

A regency romp both on and off the London stage.

Laura Edwards, a French émigré fallen on hard times, took to the stage to support her brother's medical career. Now that he's established, he wants her to turn respectable, landing her in the country hiding in plain sight from one of her biggest admirers, Jasper Rushford, the care-for-nothing son of the local viscount. He just might have recognized her...

An instant favorite

I love this story. Many wonderful gothic references and so much fun. As a theatermaker, this story was extra fun for me. I only had one historical quibble, I wish they hadn't had whistling in the theater. Whistling would have been spectacularly dangerous and everyone would have stopped him right away. Communication by the stage hands was done by whistling before modern headsets and the wrong whistle could bring scenery crashing down on your head. To this day, theatrical types are nervous when someone whistles in a theater. I started working in theater in the year 2000, many generations after the last whistled cue, and I was still vehemently warned against it and told that it was bad luck.

Sweet Regency

This was a good Regency. I enjoyed this and the first in the series about equally. I love that she brings back lovable characters.

Engaging Series

I enjoyed all three books in this series and I was sorry to see it end. The stories are rich and the plots have unexpected turns without being too predictable or confusing, though in Regency romances, the outcomes are generally foregone conclusions. The characters are complex and you find yourself really hoping for their ultimate good fortune. I love this great work from both the narrator and the author.

Another Jaima Fixen Fairchild winner

This book was a real pleasure. It had creative characters and a plot with many unexpected twists. I particularly like that the Fairchild books are full of romance without any smut. I find that very refreshing. The narration with unique voices for the individual characters was outstanding. I'm now officially hooked on the Fairchild series and must find and download the next book immediately.
