In this Regency romance by the New York Times–bestselling author of the Agatha Raisin mysteries, one little kiss causes big trouble for a debutante.
The formidable but lovable spinster sisters, Amy and Effie Tribble are back with their salty exchanges and impossible schemes. Earning their livings by sponsoring young girls and finding them husbands, they take on the case of Delilah, a beautiful, mindlessly flirtatious country heiress. What puzzles everyone is why such a beauty is unmarried at 23, and why she is ensconced in the London school of the zany Tribbles. The answer is found in the handsome person of Sir Charles Digby, returned from the Napoleonic Wars and startled to learn he is the cause of Delilah’s single state. He’s eager to remedy it—if Delilah doesn’t botch things up first…
