The whole book is just a comedy of errors. It's an absolute riot! Rosellen has more pluck than any heroine I can remember. Lord Stanford is dashing, but imperfect (who wants a PERFECT hero?). The Heatherstone twins, two of the so-called gentlemen, (who are actually a couple of red-headed cheerful pranksters) are absolutely hilarious--as is "Buck." (I don't want to spoil anything for you).
I am a huge fan of Barbara Metzger. Her books are a delight on every page, and "Miss Lockharte's Letters" is no exception. I was lucky enough to find a copy of this book: Hopefully, you'll be lucky, too.
Rosellen Lockharte thinks she's dying of a fever. In a moment of delirium, she writes letters to the people who have left impressions on her short life. Of course... she doesn't die, and the embarrassing letters have already done their damage. Now, she thinks someone's out to murder her!
Much to her dismay, Lord Stanford (he was the recipient of one of her more hateful letters) comes to her rescue! ...as well as the bumbling twins come to her rescue so she won't haunt them as she threatened.
Get this book! I smiled the whole way through, and then I laughed out loud! Let Barbara Metzger treat you to her delightful humor!
