Alex doesn't believe that she can find a husband that will allow her to have her own freedom and be intelligent.
Alex starts having feelings for the newly titled as the Earl of Blackmoor... also known as her childhood friend and neighbor, Gavin. As, Alex and her two best friends, Ella and Vivi uncover a mystery surrounding the Earl of Blackmoor and the former one. They believe something else is going on.
I loved this book. It was amazing and it was hard to put down. The setting was really well done. Maclean creates strong female characters with Alex, Ella, Vivi. They each had various personality. I liked Alex's three brothers and Gavin as well. Gavin will make you wish that you were in the book. The humor in this book was also there and it made me laugh... a lot. The mystery wasn't overdone or too little, but perfect. It had a lot of suspense that will have you turning pages, even though that the ending is kind of predictable. I can not say how much I recommend this book. Just go read it as soon as possible. I know that you will love it. I also can't wait for Sarah Maclean's next book, since this was such a wonderful debut.
Peace out, Sarah.
