SECRETS OF A WALLFLOWER
McCabe strikes the perfect note of sweet adventure and pure romance in her newest trilogy, Debutantes in Paris, when a trio of girlfriends tries to fashion their own lives and end up falling in love along the way. McCabe’s settings always sparkle with dazzling detail, and genre fans will adore the rich emotions the author infuses into her characters. Though there is no dire conflict, following the couple as they live through a world-famous mystery proves a delightful read.
Diana Martin wants nothing more than to be able to write and experience life before being forced to marry. Her chance for one last escapade lands her in Paris at the opening of the World’s Fair — in the company of the always-proper and very serious Sir William Blakely. But despite his important duty to the Crown, William finds himself under Paris’ spell and in love with Diana as she goes from shy miss to daring author. But once duty comes first, how can he possibly hope to win her heart? (HARLEQUIN HISTORICALS, Jun., 288 pp., $6.50)
