Jen Turano has again created a story that will have you gasping, giggling or guffawing. This time around we are learning more of the dear Felicia Murdock, the sweet subdued young woman that was always being thrust in the middle of things by her overly anxious mother.
We catch up with Felicia as she has just returned from watching who she thought was the love of her life get married to someone else. Felicia thought SHE was the one that was supposed to marry Rev. Michael Frasier. After thinking long and hard about it she decided maybe she misunderstood what God was saying to her so she decides to undergo a complete change in the way she has been acting the past four years. Won't everyone be shocked when she shows off the curvaceous body she has been hiding in those outlandish dresses?
Grayson Sumner aka Lord Sefton has always thought there was more to Felicia than the very demure, quiet young lady that was hiding behind those horrible outfits with the hideous bows and ribbons. He has seen a glimpse of the spirited woman that is dying to escape those confines. Will he be able to keep up with her when Felicia does finally decide to let her out?
When her mother and her friends Agatha Watson and Eliza decide Felicia needs to be cheered up, they think Grayson should be the one to do it. What this scheme starts is a delightful turn of events that will have Felicia going from one troublesome thing to another. From giving her old dresses to some odd men that were going to wear them in a theater production, to helping an old man into a tavern where she decides she wants to sing for them, even though she knows she can't sing a lick! It was a good thing Grayson showed up because there were some very naughty men that were not going to let her leave. Felicia saw a side of Grayson that certainly made her heart beat fast when he was able to get her safely away from the men in the tavern. After that escapade Felicia was left with a lot of unanswered questions about Grayson's past.
There are a lot of secrets that Grayson harbors from his time in China. Some too horrible to think about much less share with a sweet girl like Felicia. If he does share them, will she ever be able to forgive him? When trouble from his past arises will he be able to keep Felicia safe?
