About The Book:
Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, the Duke of Marshington. Since she's never actually met the man she has no intention of ever sending the letters and is mortified when her brother's mysterious new valet, Marlow, mistakenly mails one of the letters to the unsuspecting duke.
Shockingly, this breach of etiquette results in a reply from the duke that soon leads to a lively correspondence. Insecurity about her previous lack of suitors soon becomes confusion as Miranda finds herself equally intrigued by Marlow, a man she has come to depend upon but whose behavior grows more suspicious by the day. As the secret goings-on at her family's estate come to light, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.

Romance, mystery, humor and suspense come together to make Kristi Ann Hunter's first full novel (she had previously released a e-novella) a fantastic and delightful read. I thoroughly enjoyed both the hero and heroine of the novel and it had a interesting and well-developed storyline. The book caught my attention from the start and I found myself not being able to put this book down. This great, clean read is a perfect historical romance to pick up during the holidays and enjoy with a cup of tea and cozy blanket.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
