Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of Revealed comes a tale of first loves and second chances. Lady Jane Cummings is certain that her summer is ruined when she is forced to reside at isolated Merrymere Lake with her reckless brother and ailing father. Her fast-paced London society is replaced with a small town grapevine. But one bit of gossip catches Jane's attention - rumors that the lake's brooding new resident is also an elusive highwayman.

Jane must face the much discussed mysterioso after he saves her brother from a pub brawl. She immediately recognizes him from London: Byrne Worth, war hero and apparent hermit - whom she finds strangely charming. The two build a fast friendship, and soon nothing can keep this Lady away from Merrymere's most wanted. Convinced of his innocence, Jane is determined to clear Byrne's name - and maybe have a little fun this summer after all.

Too Many Disagreeable Characters

My interest in a bit of escapism has collided with the reality of how controlled women were in this era by men who were less capable than they. Brother Jason is, in a word: a Jerk. To use a few more words, he's selfish, insensitive and autocratic.

In addition to Jason's unappealing qualities, the characters who people the village in which the story is set are nearly all suspicious, devious and mean-spirited.

I read non-fiction to improve my mind. I read these Audible Escapes to do this that: escape. As I do not want to spend my leisure time with this many disagreeable people, I'm quitting half-way in before I become as crochety as the village folk.
