During the next few years, a wide variety of folks think they should have the tiara: the doyenne of the stage, Fleur Fitzgerald; The Duke of Exton wants the tiara because he wants Fleur, in spite of the fact that he is shortly to be married to the plain Jane. Sir Gareth Carew is in London from his home in Wales waiting for his next assignment as an under-cover man.

Now, Several years later, Susannah is a widow and returns to England from India, along with her ayah, Anjuli, and a small monkey. Chatterji is one of the more delightful characters to be found in this season's Regency novels, and the charming scamp finds a friend in Minette, a poodle belonging to the Duchess.   

If you love to laugh, you'll like this book. But--don't let the echo get you!
