In this story a young lady, Virginia, has arrived in London from America. At her first ball she meets Viscount Strangeways, Tony, who finds her very attractive. As she starts to make new friends one of them is the sister of the H, Wellingham, from the previous book, "Her Fateful Debut". Since his job is catching spies, his first thoughts are that she is American, there is a war going on with America, she must have come here in some illegal way, therefore she must be a spy. Wellingham asks Tony to spend time with her and observe Virginia to see what she does and if he sees anything that would help them decide what she is doing in England. Tony reluctantly agrees and finds himself falling in love with Virginia. But can he trust her? He had trusted the woman who had jilted him recently and felt he had totally been wrong about her. What if he is wrong about Virginia and she really is a spy? His friend Wellingham is ready to put her in jail, and the penalty for spying is hanging. What can Tony do to save Virginia's neck?
You know that with friends like Miss Sukey and Lady Clarice Virginia will be safe and the problem will be solved in a way to make a HEA for everyone.
The book was well written, there were a few words that were just a jumble of letters, but from the sentence it was easy to get the meaning, so I guess you could say it needed better editing. Another reviewer mentioned repeated sentences--I didn't notice this but I usually read for meaning rather than perfect grammar so I might have just read over this without seeing a problem.
In summary, it was a great story, and a very enjoyable read. I hope the author writes more Regency Romance stories--I'll have to keep my eyes open for them.
The main characters of Virginia and Tony are a couple you heartily support as they meet, fall in love - quite unwillingly:) - and finally decide love is the most important thing in their lives. There is also a set of good "supporting cast", with two villains quite believable in their behaviour and a circle of friendly lords and ladies who try to make Virginia feel at home in England...
The plotline is quite simple, but not exactly predictable, as it has a twist or two to make the love story a little more complicated, even with a threat to Virginia's life...:)
To sum it up, it may not be a revolutionary romantic novel, but it is smoothly written, has both interesting characters and quite fast-paced storyline, and is a really good read for a nice Friday afternoon... I will definitely read more in this series of books.
Viscount Strangeways (WEIRD name--it threw me for a loop every time I read the name!) keeps bumping into Virginia. When his best friend voices his worry about her being a spy, Tony ends up questioning everything about her.
Add amnesia, a spy, crazy bluestocking friends and a dog named after an American patriot & you get a book that was more entertaining than I expected. A fun and easy lazy day read.
