Mrs. Catherine Bexley, at the young age of 27, is just out of mourning for her husband. He left her a home which is nice and comfortable. He also left her a truly valuable possession that has just been stolen. It is a 400-year old early edition of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, one of only 3 in existence. Unfortunately, her husband did not manage their money well and this book was to be Catherine's nest egg that she could sell and be able to live a comfortable life. Now that it is gone, she faces losing her home.

Twins, Elvin and Melvin Steffington are identical in looks but extremely different in personalities. At the age of 27, first born, Sir Elvin, is a Baronet and second born, Melvin, while being just a Mr. is extremely intelligent and has achieved his Doctor of Letters. As he must earn his living, his goal is to work in a private library. Elvin is a bit of a "lie-abed" man about town while Melvin is a man whose nose is always in a book and knows nothing about women.

The Steffington twins are good friends with Mrs. Bexley, and when she confides in Melvin about the loss of the Chaucer, they agree that he will help her try to find it. She will then sell it and give him a percentage of the sale for helping her find it. So, off they go on adventures in search of places where they think it might be.

As an thorn in her side, the extremely rich, yet obnoxiously boring braggert, Lord Longford, is constantly around in an attempt to court Mrs. Bexley.

The relationship between Melvin and Catherine is just adorable. Melvin is such an innocent that I simply wanted to give him a hug. The comical parts of this book will have the reader chuckling often.

Catherine Bexley enjoys being a widow so much more than her awful marriage she had been shackled to. Her hope is to keep the status permanently however the problem at hand now is how to get the funds to stay that way since the only thing of value has been stolen. The late Mr. Bexley owned a priceless first edition of Chaucer and only a man with a love of literature could help her recover it, so enter Melvin Steffington. Melvin is the brain to his twin brother’s charm but tracking an extremely valuable book is right up his alley. He does point out the obvious that this would not be an issue if Catherine would have locked the doors and window but she cannot reverse that action she needs to just find her property.

Melvin and Catherine start working the basics of how to figure out who might have the book. So many may have wanted it but only a few would covet the existence in their personal collection. Trips must be taken and chances risked but while Melvin may not be prolific with his words he does know how to take care of Catherine by showing her she can rely on his character and abilities.

With every step they take forward the two are pushed backward right off the cliff of an investigative trail. Melvin tries to direct the course of action but Catherine, while not acting like any other woman he knows still comes up with illogical actions to endanger them. Catherine might trust Melvin but at the end of this caper she knows it is she that will be forced into unsuitable living arrangements as all her money is tied up in that one item.

Simply put you may have this to take of and that to handle, but trust me you will not be able to stop reading until you have reached the last word

Cheryl Bolen returns to Bath with this fifth entry in the Brides of Bath series. Fans will be glad to have a glimpse of old friends, and new readers will have no trouble following this stand-alone romance.

Catherine Bexley is a young widow, finishing her period of mourning for her late, but not particularly lamented, husband. Almost all of Mr. Bexley’s wealth was tied up in a near-priceless Chaucer manuscript, but Catherine needs to put a price on it, and soon, because she’s nearly out of money. Unfortunately, the manuscript has been stolen, and the bank holding the mortgage on her house is asking for payment.

Melvin Steffington is a brilliant scholar, an expert in classical literature and rare books. His slightly older twin brother, Elvin, is a worldly baronet, but Melvin is uninterested in fashion and totally clueless about women. The brothers are close, but Melvin wants to make his own way in the world.

Out of loyalty to her husband, Catherine wants to keep the theft--and the fact that she has no other resources--a secret, but she needs help to solve the mystery of the disappearing manuscript. When she recruits Melvin Steffington (“the smart twin,” as he is known), little does she suspect that their partnership will grow into so much more.

Along the way Catherine and Melvin meet eccentric book collectors, break a number of social rules, and confront the bad guys, before they finally confront their feelings about each other.

This is another delightful Regency love story from Cheryl Bolen. If you have enjoyed her earlier books you will love this one.
