After dueling with a pair of "enchanted" pistols, that have the reputation of leading one to their true love, the tired war veteran, Tony Sheridan finds himself encountering the one woman he has ever truly loved, one he believed to have abandoned him for another. She is now a widow with a young son, who he does not realize is in fact, his, at first. Love is a secondary consideration for both of them, though. Felicity is more concerned with survival, and Tony with finding a murderer. Besides, each feels that the other wronged them.
***** This charming, slightly Shakespearean with a touch of Agatha Christy and a dash of Barbara Cartlandt book will charm readers who have followed Ms. King since her delightful first novel. The hero and heroine alike display keen wit and illustrate how love can mend the the unmendable.
