Bored at the Wemberly Masque even with four police cars entering the driveway, Lucinda Hollander searches for her beau Archie Conlon. To her surprise, Archie, in his Bozo the Clown wardrobe places a ring on Lucinda's finger. Before she can regain her equilibrium and remove the too small ring, Archie jumps through a window. The police arrest Lucinda for the murder of George Jacobs, though she insists she has never heard of the man. Rather than do the rationale thing and go with the cops, Lucinda jumps through the same window that her fiancé used as his exit.

Lucinda who has never worked in her life disguises herself as Lucy French, obtaining employment as a housekeeper to a wealthy Kentucky family. However, if her poor work habits don't unmask her, her growing feelings for Max “car guy” Hogan will for she is falling in love with the racing car driver.

Readers who enjoy a wild contemporary romantic suspense with the emphasis on laughter will clearly want to read THE RING ON HER FINGER. The story line never takes itself serious even when Lucy finds herself in trouble and on the lam. The secondary characters provide the fullness that enable fans to appreciate the antics of the lead female character and the bewilderment of the prime male hunk who feels as if he was hit by a vehicle at a 100 MPH upon meeting Lucy. Though their relationship takes a secondary seat to humor and the murder subplot, Elizabeth Bevarly provides a fun frolic for fans of the sub-genre.
