Aurora Halle McPhee, a girl of humble (some might say unconventional) background, cannot believe her luck when she is betrothed to the dashing, well-bred Harland Podell. Aurora soon learns, however, that the match is too good to be true when the nuptials are interrupted--by the brother of the groom's wife!

Delightful! *Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Aurora McPhee is about to marry the dashing and handsome Harland Podell when a stranger bursts through the church doors and declares Harland a bigamist, already married to his sister and another woman. The stranger, Kenyon Warriner, Earl of Windham, believing Aurora to be compromised decides to marry her himself. Thus begins an amusing course of events that turn sinister as Kenyon and Aurora discover she may have a sizeable inheritance she knew nothing about. Will they ever figure out who is behind the events and more important, will they ever get to settle into a proper marriage? Ah, I know when I pick up a Barbara Metzger book I’m going to get an afternoon of entertainment with an unusual and amusing love story. The deliciously unconventional characters are so much fun to follow as they live their lives between the pages. Aurora is a plucky intelligent girl raised in what is considered a rather unusual household for the times. Her aunt and uncle are basically environmentalists, but everyone else thinks they’re a bit loony. Kenyon is a take charge kind of guy whose life runs like clockwork. That is until he marries Aurora who creates chaos wherever she goes. There are many giggles and laugh out loud moments as Aurora and Kenyon try to make a life together even when everything conspires against them. All-in-all a delightful way to spend a few hours.
A bit slow to start but, as complications pile one on top of another, the characters shine in all their eccentric glory. A fun and relaxing story.
