I love a story with spies, intrigue, murder, blackmail and great house party. This book has a that and much more. Katrina starts this story as a pushover. She makes beautiful dresses but her shop is in Cheapside. Katrina needs her childhood friend, Julia, to wear her dresses to a famous house party. Julia agrees but has one request of her own, Katrina must in Julia place. They used to switch places as children so Katrina goes with Julia's trusted maid, Celia. Leo is a spy for the crown and his brother, a duke, asked him to go to the house party and catch a jewel thief. Leo takes his trusted valet/best friend, Boscombe, with him. Katrina has to grow up fast because Julia lied to her about everything. Katrina is shocked to see Leo and doesn't know what ended Julia's relationship with him. If she didn't have enough to worry about, Julia's husband shows up. At that moment, Katrina finally gets her big pants on and stands up to Celia and says "SHE WILL NOT SLEEP HIM!" Leo know she isn't Julia but he can't stay away. This story has a unclaimed father, an angry and murderous brother-in-law, great gowns,a jealous unexpected husband, a jealous ex-lover, loyal and indispensable Boscombe and a new and brave Katrina. I give this book 3 fingers up and 8 toes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
