He’s running from love. Can she outfox him?

Andrew Backus was never supposed to be an heir. But with the possibility of a fine inheritance looming, every Society matron is throwing her daughters at him in hopes to catch the careless dandy. Unfortunately for them all, Andrew will not be caught and dragged into the responsibilities of matrimony.

The youngest of nine children, Isabella Todd longs for a match that would finally make her parents and Society take notice of her. When she crosses paths with Mr. Backus, she realizes a marriage to him could give her the desired recognition and she hatches a plot to snare the heir before he suspects.

Acting the part of friend, Isabella unintentionally falls for the fun-loving Andrew rather than his expected fortune. When he uncovers her plot just before Christmas, Andrew must decide if he can believe the truth of her love before her parents call her to London for their own schemes.

Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.

    I enjoyed this story this afternoon without realizing I was reading a fairy tale retelling. (That is what happens from letting my reader read it to me instead of looking at the page myself.) When I figured it out I realized I don’t know the story of the Gingerbread Man at all. After reading The Gingerbread Man I could see that there were so many things that the author drew into her retelling that were from the tale. It was fun to discover the similarities. It is a cute story. I enjoyed the beginnings of Isabella and Andrew’s relationship. They were cute together. Cute, clean, quick read for a quiet afternoon or evening. And it has a better ending than the fairy tale.

    No sex, language or violence
