Overview

Sophie Barnes is back with another delightful Summersby Tale. This time, Ryan Summersby meets his match!

Mary Croyden lives a simple life . . . and she likes it. But when she inherits a title and a large sum of money, everything changes. Forced to navigate high society, Mary finds herself relying on the help of one man—Ryan Summersby. Determined not to lose her sense of self, she realizes that Ryan is the only person she can trust. But Mary's hobbies are not exactly proper, and Ryan is starting to discover that this simple miss is not at all what he expected . . . but just might be exactly what he needs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mary Croyden thought her father was nothing more than a talented surgeon; his only legacy was to teach her all of his skills. Upon his death, she discovers that in fact he was a marquis, and he left her his title and wealth. Suddenly, Mary has to make her way among the aristocrats. Fortunately, she meets Ryan Summersby, an infuriatingly attractive lord who takes her under his wing. Little does she know that he was sent to protect her from unknown conspirators bent on seeing her dead. The tension between Mary and Ryan keeps the story from falling into trite mystery territory, and the whole book has a lovely sense of humor. The reader will enjoy watching the leads do their best not to fall in love and fail—repeatedly!

Verdict This latest title in Barnes “Summersby” series (after Lady Alexandra’s Excellent Adventure) is a fun mystery that livens up a romantic tale filled with delightful characters. The perfect book for a rainy Saturday with a cup of tea.—Emily Thompson, SUNY at Oswego Lib.
