Even though widow Rebecca Boothe Parrish, our heroine, is admittedly out to snag a rich husband, the reader will still like her and understand why she is doing her best to trap the dull, bird-loving Lord Peter Ward. At the same time, you cannot help but sympathize when the young widow is attracted to the cynical Trevelyan de Villars, one of the best rakes I've come across in romantic literature. There are quite a number of secondary characters, and all done well and add to the story.
The plot moves along quickly with several twists. The dialog and narrative are nicely balanced, with good descriptions that do not overwhelm the reader with too many details, yet enough to set the scene and bring the story to life. The dialog is clever, and I loved the wordplay between Rebecca and de Villars- it is fun and made me laugh aloud often. There's a couple of romances going on beyond that of the H/h, along with a light mystery involving the Jacobite Rebellion.
It is a lighthearted story in that humor is present even during the more serious moments. If it were available on Kindle, I'd get this for my mother-in-law since she loves fun stories with many characters and lots of action. Highly recommended!
