Catherine has more to think about than charming, handsome Tristram and his accusations, even if he's beginning to change her mind about never returning to England. Back at her family's Tuxedo Park estate, she resolves to restore her honor by earning the forgiveness of her best friend and protecting her younger sister from other fortune-seeking Englishmen with dubious titles, all while abiding by the etiquette of the Gilded Age.
Yet when Tristram's quest takes a dangerous turn, she must decide whether to follow the rules or save her accuser's life.

Mystery and Romance
Initially I was concerned that I would not be able to relate to, or even like, Catherine - knowing from the description that she had eloped with her best friend's fiancé. However, as it turns out, it is immediately obvious that "this" Catherine (5 years later) is a much different person - a woman who has been humbled and rejected and hopes to make amends and be able to enter back into the society she spurned. Fortunately her best friend is a kind and forgiving young woman who is secretly in love with someone else. All of this is a bit of a mystery throughout much of the book - on top of the true mystery of who actually stole the family jewels. Tristram believes it is Catherine throughout most of the book, yet in spite of this, he is drawn to Catherine and she to him.
Ultimately this is a sweet romantic mystery; however, due to the mystery itself, there is not as much of the story devoted to the romance and I felt the loss of this. However, it was definitely worth reading and very well written and narrated.
