I really like to escape with a Georgette Heyer book. This one was good, but not among her best. Her characters were not as engaging as they sometimes are (e.g. "Black Sheep".)

Eleanor Rochdale, once well-to-do, now must earn her living as a governess. But strange circumstances take her to the ancestral home of Lord Carlyon, who asks her to marry his cousin, a young man she has never seen. Even more strange, the young man is now dying, stabbed during a quarrel in a tavern. And thus, Elinor Rochdale is drawn into a new life filled with unsuspected danger and love.

Georgette Heyer at her best.
