Description from Amazon.com:
Cecilia Goodhue is a schoolteacher with a past, living with her sister and her husband in a tiny English village. Resigned to a quiet life, Cecilia is surprised when she finds out that her young cousin has run off with a man of no means. Cecilia had once been a teenaged girl who also fell for a young man’s charms—only to be devastated by his betrayal. Determined to not let her cousin meet the same fate, she heads off to London to but is shocked when her investigation leads her right to the front door of the very man who broke her heart: Theo Hudson. Together, they reluctantly embark on finding her cousin and returning her to her family. During their searching in London, it soon becomes clear that they both remember their short-lived romance differently and perhaps now, years later, they have a fresh chance at love.
This is a very humorous romance. Cecilia is a spinster schoolteacher who has a scandalous past. She has been atoning for that past by being circumspect and the acquiescing roomer in her sister’s home with her sister’s vicar husband. But when the need to rescue her cousin from the same fate that was the cause of her scandal became apparent, then she is off to do what she can to set things right. That is when she runs into Theo who was the cause of her scandal, the boy who is now a man and the love of her life.
This is a short entry in the Winner Take All series. It is such a pleasant, humor filled addition to a wonderful series that I must give it a high recommendation. You do not need to read the beginning books to enjoy this one but there are side characters that make an appearance from previous books.
