"Piers Brandon, British peer and secret agent for Her Majesty's Crown, reveals little of his emotions in narrator Carmen Rose's aristocratic portrayal, but debutante Charlotte Highwood chips away at his defenses. When a chance meeting places them in a compromising situation, Piers declares he'll marry Charlotte. But she'd rather investigate the suspicious circumstances that threw them together. Charlotte comes across as a complex young woman. She tries to rise above the gossip of high-placed ladies as she suffers the hurt of their judgments. Her determination to win Piers on her own terms comes across in her dialogue, as does her naughty humor. Rose matches the slow reveal of Piers's insecurities in his internal monologues and conversation. This Spindle Cove title can stand alone--or one can choose to enjoy the whole series.
