JUST LIKE HEAVEN
Quinn is an expert at creating realistic characters, rich historical settings and witty dialogue. The first book in her new Smythe- Smith Quartet is a sweet romp but predictable.
Lady Honoria is desperate to find a husband after two years on the shelf. It doesn’t help matters that her brother is in exile after a terrible scandal or that, unbeknownst to her, Marcus, Earl of Chatteris, her childhood friend, is scaring off her suitors. When Marcus is hurt during one of Honor’s crazy schemes to capture a suitor, she rushes to his side to nurse him to health. Suddenly, childhood friends have more in common than they realize.
