I was kept surprisingly engaged by this book. I thought it might be a bit sappy, but it turned out to be quite snappy. I think it's a Regency romance book, but the time period isn't exactly specified.

Elenora help the Earl of St Merryn find a mad killer that is loose in London. She is hired by him to pose as his fiancee so that he may roam about London without being plagued by fotune hunting mothers trying to foist their young daughters on him as potential brides.

In the process the no-nonsense Elenora sets his London house to rights; wins his heart; and together they solve the mystery. They go on to live happily ever after. Ah, it's so nice to read such a fun little romance once in awhile! I think this one would actually make a good movie.

This is first time I have read a book from this author. Pleasant and enjoyable reading - not too sappy or strong love story but very predictable. Good fast reading
