Lady Priscilla and Sir Neville keep inching themselves closer to revealing their true feelings, but some wicked plot or murder always seems to get in the way of their romance.

This time THE GREATEST POSSIBLE MISCHIEF occurs: the death of a man known to have quarreled bitterly with Sir Neville. The two amateur sleuths must once again pit wits against wickedness to keep Sir Neville out of the constable's clutches.

Ferguson keeps the delightful duo's antics as fresh and invigorating as ever. Clever use of secondary characters helps carry the tale forward while keeping the blossoming love between the main characters a lightly trod path of sweet desire. (Oct., 224 pp., $4.99)
