About the book:
Miss Felicia Murdock firmly believed her destiny was to become a minister's wife. When the minister on whom she had set her sights marries another lady, Felicia is forced to take a close look at her life and comes to a few uncomfortable conclusions. Determined that something needs to change--and soon--Felicia discovers she is finally ready to spread her wings and embrace life the way she's always wanted.
Grayson Sumner--or Lord Sefton, as he's officially known--has had more than enough of spreading his wings and only hopes to settle into the life of a normal, respectable New York gentleman. Prompted by some well-meaning friends to lift the spirits of the disappointed-in-love Miss Murdock, he is surprised to encounter a young lady who seems to have become quite adventurous and quite determined to get herself into all sorts of troublesome situations.
Intent on remaining independent, Felicia is reluctant to accept Grayson's help, especially as she finds herself developing feelings for him. However, just as Grayson decides he's had quite enough of her antics, his past comes back to haunt him and his presence in her life has endangered Felicia. Will Grayson and Felicia decide they want to spend the rest of their lives keeping one another out of trouble?
Oh my goodness, Felicia is a hoot! She has spent the last 4 years pining after the local minister and the day he gets married she is a mess, both literally and figuratively. Her mother insists she go to her sister's for tea the day her heart is torn in half, she doesn't want to go, but decides it is time for a change, such a change that she wears black to this tea. From there what takes place is more trouble than you could ever imagine as Felicia rediscovers who she is and they get to know each other.
Highly recommended!!! I adored this book, it will make my top list this year!
