Emily Hendrickson catches our fancy with A PERILOUS ENGAGEMENT (3), a nifty blend of romance and suspense. A newly elevated baron arrives to take up his inheritance only to discover that he has apparently also inherited his predecessors bride-to-be, the lovely daughter of a earl left in the custody of her maternal aunt. On top of that, his predecessors death turns out to be more than suspicious. Is he in danger as well? Although the resolution is somewhat drawn out, Ms. Hendrickson crafts a clever plot that keeps the reader guessing about the villains identity for most of the book.
