First, I am not an avid romance reader and while this one is predictable with its tale and ending, I found reading it relaxing and enjoyable. Klassen draws characters that are believable and realistic. Margaret flees her home when her step-father schemes to have her married to his nephew and becomes a maid at Fairbourne Hall. Of course, she has had previous romantic encounters with both the young men who inhabit Fairbourne. Will her disguise fool them? Only time will tell. Donning a back wig, her father's lenses and affecting a maid's manner of speech she hopes to last until her birthday when she will inherit a fortune from an aunt if she remains unmarried. Her encounters with the other servants are humorous at times as she works to become a maid. Now she knows how her servants must have felt when she was in charge but she works hard to be accepted. Not an easy task when you have to learn everything from scratch.
