Danger mounts at a baron's remote estate, as a clever tutor's daughter decides which son to suspect and which to trust with her heart.
Regency fans will thank Klassen (The Maid of Fairbourne Hall) once again for this lovely addition to the genre. The award-winning author offers adept plotting adorned with the historical details and landscapes that will satisfy and add to the Regency fan base. Emma Smallwood, daughter of tutor John Smallwood, finds a place for her dispirited father at Ebbington Manor, home to two former students. Their arrival, however, is less that auspicious. The Weston brothers-former students Henry and Phillip and current students Rowan and Julian-are embroiled in family drama along with their father and his second wife, the younger boys' mother, Lady Weston, and her ward Lizzie Henshaw. Emma discovers that secrets abound at Ebbington Manor, including mysterious music, nighttime visits, and outright threats. What are the Westons hiding? Might Emma be attracted to a Weston brother? Regency/Klassen fans will love the mystery, romance, and drama. Agent: Wendy Lawton, Books & Such Literary Agency. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
