When Penelope Lindon agrees to remain single in order to maintain guardianship of her beloved niece and nephew, it never occurs to her that there could be a man who could make her regret this arrangement with the children's father. The new Lord Worthington is everything she has ever dreamed of in a man, and neither the scandal of his past or the possibility that he is a murderer are enough to keep her from falling in love with him.

When they join forces to find a killer in their midst, the feelings between them grow strong, but Penelope knows that she could never give up the twins, not even for his love. Garland has spun a good evening's entertainment with this solid tale of hidden secrets even the most respectable neighborhood might reveal with just A SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLANS. (Nov., 320 pp., $4.99)
