Can a love of dead poets save her from following in their footsteps?
While visiting her favorite poets' old haunts in England's Lake District, Grace Hollister, an American schoolteacher and literary scholar, stumbles upon the body of Peter Fox face down in a stream. Thankfully, the dashing local antiques dealer is not dead - but after saving his life Grace soon finds herself pursued by two menacing thugs who are after the gewgaws Peter is hiding. Problem is, Peter doesn't have any gewgaws. He doesn't even know what gewgaws are. But he and Grace soon discover they've got something to do with Lord Byron¨and someone's willing to kill for them.
As Peter's dark past is gradually revealed, his knowledge of vice coupled with Grace's love of verse lead them straight into the heart of a caper of the highest order - one that might lead to a spectacular literary discovery and poetic justice for all.

Old Fashioned in the Best Possible Way
- Will Murray
I love a story with a strong female character. She didn't need saved by the hero, she saved herself. The romance was secondary, if that. It had a good mystery. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, it changed. I really enjoyed this book.
