Publisher's Summary

Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of LondonWhen Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . . .

Interesting Story

I'm not a romance novel person - but, Ms. Quinn has got me downloading her books. Yes, there's the boy meets girl stuff but the circumstances the characters find themselves in - it's just hilarious! I'm glad to find an author that just doesn't delve in such romantic stuff - she just has a way of telling a story that makes it so funny, too. Pecked to death by pigeons - that's a classic. Oh, and the narration is excellent, too!

I laughted all through

This is one of the funniest novels I got for veeeeeery long time. Main character Lady Olivia is so greatly described that I started with chuckle in 2nd chapter and by chapter 4 already laughed loud. I did not stop till the end.
