Miss Adeline Hayes is the perfect lady’s companion: pleasant, conversational, and unceasingly proper. But when her closest friend, Charity Edgeworth, breaks off her arranged marriage without explanation, even Adeline’s superior skills are put to the test. Charity’s father banishes the two young women to the country, sending Adeline with a charge to find Charity a husband—or suffer dire consequences.

As Adeline takes on the role of reluctant matchmaker, she discovers more than one obstacle in her path. Not only does Charity prefer escaping in books to socializing, but Adeline soon finds her own attentions distracted by the standoffish—and irritatingly handsome—Mr. Evan Whitfield. Amidst an eventful foxhunt and the unexpected arrival of Charity’s former betrothed, Adeline simply doesn’t have time for a battle of wits with Evan. But the two are continually drawn together until Adeline begins to question her tightly guarded convictions about love and marriage.

However, when secrets are revealed and truths made known, Adeline must face her most fearsome obstacle yet: herself.

    I’ve enjoyed each of Ms. Barker’s books so far and this one was an enjoyable read as well. I like her writing style. This book had an interesting story line and interesting characters and I found I felt strong emotions right along with them. I cringed as Adeline made judgement errors and felt crushed by her despair as things fell apart. I also felt joy right along with her. I felt terrible for George but also just a little skeptical that maybe he was hiding something and wondered at the alternating harshness and kindness of Evan. And I also felt Charity’s sadness and anger. Peter was a delight. And having had parent’s with dementia, I felt the sadness of losing a parent while they still live. That scenario is always killer to my heart. Lots of feels in the book. And a good read.

    This book was so fun to read! I could see Adeline making decisions that were not going to end well for her. I really connected with her though since I think I’ve made similar mistakes in my life at times. It was sweet to see the relationship between her and Evan. I liked the addition of Adeline’s father having dementia. My grandpa had dementia for several years before he died. It was interesting learning about all of the characters and seeing what happened in the end.
