Publisher's Summary

Lady Lucy Upton's tongue may be too sharp to attract suitors, but her heart is good, and when her painfully shy friend Cassandra needs help, she devises a brilliant scheme to help her discourage an unwanted suitor, the Duke of Claringdon. Lucy will hide behind the hedgerow and tell Cass just what to say to discourage the Duke of Claringdon...but it turns out that he's made of sterner stuff than either of them anticipated. And Lucy is shocked to discover that tangling with the tenacious man is the most fun she's had in ages. Lord Derek Hunt made a promise to his dying friend to marry the demure Cassandra, and for a man who wants nothing more than peace and quiet after the horrors of war, she'll make the perfect bride. If only the impudent Miss Upton will let him court the girl! Doing battle is the last thing on his mind, but bantering with Lucy behind the bushes is too tempting to resist. And the spoils of this war just may be true love.

Great group of friends and sweet romances

Lucy and Derrick provide fun, sharp, witty banter. Cass and Jane are wonderful friends. Garrett was a great cousin and friend.

Alison does the job of British and period diction with both males and females.

Could not deal with the reader

I made it through about 20 minutes of the book before giving up. The narrator reminded me too much of Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter.
