A Noble Masquerade by Kristi Ann Hunter
'A Lady always pays attention to her guests, even when she finds them boring.' 'A Lady never gives her servants something to gossip about.' Even when her mother is not present, Lady Miranda can here her mother's Lady lessons. Miranda has done fairly well at obeying these lessons, all but one. 'A Lady never has correspondence with a gentleman who is not a close relative.' Miranda has been writing to Marsh, her brother's school chum for years, but she has never mailed any of them, so it shouldn't matter, right? But when her brother's new valet finds one of her letters, everything changes.
A Noble Masquerade will keep you on the edge of your seat, and may cause you to miss sleep. Even after finishing the book, I find myself wondering what everybody is doing. The characters and plot was so plausible that it is easy to believe that they are continuing their lives long after the book was done.I look forward to the next Hawthorne House book.
