Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Banished to the dower house and denied any part of her prior life or responsibility by the mean-spirited heir to her late husband's estate, Lady Catherine Granville scandalizes her shallow, snobbish in-laws by going into "the trade" and establishing Lady Catherine Granville's Select Academy for Genteel Young Ladies. Determined to thwart this scheme, Lavinia, the present Lady Granville, enlists the aid of the Marquess of Charlmont to make Catherine see reason. But when the marquess arrives at the Academy to discuss enrolling his niece-and to check out the infamous lady Catherine-the pair realize that they had met before, and they each have rather different memories of their previous acquaintance. An independent, caring bluestocking, determined to live life on her own terms, a noble hero who is more than he seems, and an intricate, well-researched plot with a dash of mystery add up to a diverting read that will appeal to fans who like their Regencies intelligent, multilayered, and with more depth than the average romp. Richardson is a popular writer of a number of well-written traditional Regencies (A Foreign Affair) and lives in Lexington, MA. [For more on Richardson, a.k.a.
