I enjoyed this classic Regency.
If Miss Kitty Stone thought that having her younger and prettier sister, Beatrice, elope with her eligible beau, the Duke of Charlsey, from right under her nose was too embarrassing for words, the unpalatable knowledge that because of her family's financial situation, she will now have to live with Beatrice and the duke at Charlsey, is making her feel quite bilious. But beggars cannot be choosers. And soon Kitty finds herself and her mother, Lady Dunmark, living with Beatrice, the duke and the duke's forbidding mother, the Dowager Duchess at Charlsey, where things are far from rosy.
A jilted young woman is forced by financial circumstances to reside with her sister and her former fiancee. Unfortunately he has a mother from hell who makes everyones life miserable, until our young woman steps in to call a halt. Along the way, a neighbor injured in THE war comes to stay and recuperate and helps in solving an old mystery.
It was a fun book to read.
