CRYSTAL CLEAR by Elizabeth Cadell

Down another English garden (or bridal) path, as the newspaper announcement of the engagement of young Paul Saxon to a girl he'd never heard of- the daughter of a fortune teller-brings on all kinds of romantic repercussions. Paul is never able to identify his intended- but instead meets Antonia, who is socially unsuitable but far more appealing than his uncle's candidate for his hand; his uncle Oswald fulminates, speculates, and investigates to no purpose; his mother, widowed and charmingly distrait, attracts a suitor in the Scotland Yard man assigned to clarify the case; his sister Philippa experiments with a young scientist, and secures his affections; etc., etc. A pleasant confusion of intrigue and infatuation, with a sunny sparkle to most of it.
