I was rooting for Nan though the whole book. I put myself in her shoes & kept wanting her to succeed. But the villains seemed to be successful. I couldn't figure out how he was going to get out of that predicament so I couldn't put the book down until I finished it.

This is one of the few Patricia Wentworth books that do not feature Miss Silver solving the mystery. It's more of a romantic suspense than a mystery. I love this book, it's a keeper and one of my comfort reads.

From the back of the book...

Diabolical...that was the word for rich Uncle Ambrose's will. If Jervis Weare did not marry within three months, King's Weare, the huge seaside estate, and all the money would go to his fiancee, Roasmund. Then, just two days before the wedding and the expiration of the deadline, Rosamund threw him over. Jervis' only hope, and his attorney reluctantly concurred, was to marry someone else.
But who was this strange girl named Nan Forsyth? She was his lawyer's secretary, and after he met her employer, it was she who had run after Jervis. All the rest about her was a mystery. And why now, after they were alone together at King's Weare, was she insisting someone was trying to murder him...
