When Olivia comes to London with her younger sister to attempt to publish her cousin's poems, it never occurs to her that she will meet the man of her dreams—or be put in fear for her life. THE SECRET DIARY (3) that tells of her cousin's illicit love affair is the key to many mysteries for Olivia and for the handsome Lord Crichton, who may have penned the love letters to Olivia's cousin. When a madman schemes to claim credit for the lovely poetry, Olivia and her newfound love are threatened. Martha Kirkland gives us an entertaining tale of familial intrigue and of a deep-seated love between two lonely people who've never even met. It places readers into a strange world of manners, mores and madness and leads them deftly through it by the light of love. (Jun., 224 pp., $4.99)
