Jo Ann Ferguson plunges us into excitement and intrigue in MISS CHARITY'S CASE (2). After a clergyman dies in disgrace, his two daughters seek refuge with a maternal aunt who agrees to sponsor them for the Season. But what is the real reason behind her hospitality, and why is she so adamant in her refusal to countenance the suit of the elder sister by a handsome earl? Although verisimilitude is thin and the profusion of Regency slang distracting, readers can enjoy the intricate plot and the handsome hero.
