Publisher's Summary

The closest thing to romance in Emily Whittaker’s life is her lukewarm relationship with Dr Boyle. But her new friendship with Nathalie Fanshawe brings about a welcome visit to the seaside. On her return to Lincoln, she finds that Canon Trimmer and his family have moved into the area, and Mrs Trimmer’s brother, Sir Gareth Blades, is visiting them. The baronet seems to be a figure of romance and, to Emily’s amazement, he appears to be attracted to her.

But the arrival of Annis Hughes convinces Emily that there is a mysterious side to Sir Gareth, and the discovery of a connection between the baronet and Mrs Fanshawe leads Emily to think the very worst.

Lovely

I approached this book hoping it might be somewhat Georgette Heyer like, and I wasn't disappointed. Though the story here is slightly grittier than GH would have written I much enjoyed it and would happily buy another in the series.

The audiobook was read very pleasantly by Ann, with voices that seemed very appropriate in my view.
