Gavin had come into the earlship with a mountain of debt. Although it didn't suit his sensibilities to agree to Sir Thomas Chesterton's offer of his sister and her sizeable dowry in exchange for a gaming debt of 12,000 pounds, what's a gentleman to do when he's barely escaping debtor's prison. So, he agrees to the premise without ever lighting eyes on Frederica.
Frederica isn't well pleased with her brother, so decides to infiltrate Gavin's household in the role of the assistant housekeeper by donning a wig, drawing a few freckles on her face and wearing spectacles. However, what she learns alternately dismays and excites her. In Gavin's household, she unexpectedly becomes the nanny to Gavin's sweet little ward who calls her "Cherry." But... exactly who is this little girl whose existence must be kept a secret from Society?
I had mixed feelings about Gavin. He continues his somewhat debauched lifestyle after committing to marry the "as yet unmet" Frederica and in fact Frederica, in her role as Cherry, encounters one of his current paramours in Gavin's home. Also, the fact that Gavin would enter into the agreement with Thomas relative to Frederica seemed a bit shady. To Gavin's credit, he doesn't feel great about his own behavior.
Basically, Frederica saves the day in many ways, including eventually helping Gavin with his finances in her role as Cherry. I had hoped the ending would take a more dramatic turn since we all knew that Cherry would have to unveil herself at some point by removing the wig, freckles and spectacles to become Frederica. But no, in my opinion, the author didn't end the book with the bang I was hoping for. Three solid stars for this one.
