Lucinda (Lucy) Seton, adopted daughter of a Scottish colonel and alumna of the Academy, is helping out at Mrs. Harris's school, which has fallen on some hard times. When rumors that the adjacent property may be sold for a pleasure garden, she is determined to prevent it. The prospective owner is one Diego Montalvo, a magnetic magician (thief? scoundrel?). But the purchase of the property is a subterfuge; Diego has been looking for a missing Spanish heiress who has that birthmark on her thigh. In exchange for taking her back to Spain to her grandfather, Diego will recover his family's property. Sparks fly between Lucy and Diego, enough to divert each of them from their goals. Yes, Lucy is the missing heiress; no, Diego is not a devil, but an honorable man; yes, the story of Lucy's adoption conceals murky dealings, and yes, all's well in the end. But it's neither a compelling nor an interesting story. (The letters between Mrs. Harris and "cousin" Michael that start each chapter reveal a serious falling out. We seem to be nearer to finding out who he is.)

The characters are very likeable, but the plot is a bit busy. I think my original lack of enthusiasm stemmed from not having a vested interest in Lucy from previous books; SJ has a talent for writing secondary characters that intrigue you, and you want to know what happens to them. I never felt that with Lucy Seton. Once the story started, I was truly invested and, in true Sabrina Jeffries fashion, she pulled me in. I don't regret buying and reading this book, but I honestly would have been fine without it. 3 stars for the good writing, and the last star for making me like a character that I had previously been indifferent about.

Sabrina Jeffries' School for Heiresses Series has not been a dissapointment. She is a talented author; I enjoyed reading the series in book order and can't wait to read #6.
