As I was browsing through the books I've read so far this year, I remembered that I made a goal to read four "old favorites" before the end of the year. So far, I've only read one! (The Conquering Family, by Thomas B. Costain.) I've got four months to squeeze three more favorites in. A friend recently mentioned to me that she just finished reading Cousin Kate, by Georgette Heyer, which reminded me that it's been a very, very long time since I've read that particular title. So of course, I decided it was time to read it again! :-)
Here's the back over blurb:
The sudden invitation to live with her Aunt Minerva at Staplewood came as a complete surprise to young Kate Malvern. Now an orphan with no future, she gratefully accepted Lady Broome's offer, never dreaming there was anything strange about the older woman's kindness.
It was not until later that Kate began to suspect that something was amiss. It was very odd that she had received no letters from her dear old nurse, Sarah. Without Sarah there was nobody who cared about her. And there was Lady Broome's son Torquil. Torquil, whose handsome face hid a wild and deadly secret. Lady Broome wanted desperately for Kate to become his wife as soon as possible. Kate refused. But she had reckoned without Lady Broome.
Then Torquil's dashing cousin, Philip Broome, arrived at Staplewood, and Kate hoped they could become friends. It was ridiculous to hope for more. Or was it?
Stop by next Tuesday and I'll share a Tuesday Teaser with you from Cousin Kate!
