KIRKUS REVIEW

When Ravenna Caulfield is forced by her elder sister to attend a house party, she encounters mean girls, a murder mystery and maybe the man of her dreams.

Ravenna, the third of three orphan sisters who were taken in by a scholarly village vicar, has established herself in a lord’s household taking care of his many pets. But now that her sister Arabella is married, everyone but Ravenna feels that the position is unseemly for the sister-in-law of a duke. Arabella arranges for Ravenna to be invited to a house party in France that includes a Portuguese prince in hopes that she might win his hand, since Arabella believes in a fortuneteller’s promise that once one of the sisters marries a prince, they will know who their parents are. Animal enthusiast Ravenna would rather be anywhere other than a society party filled with scheming English ladies determined to win the hand of the spoiled royal, but her interest is piqued by the man’s half brother, Vitor Courtenay, who steals a kiss in the stable. Then, as a snowstorm moves in, she and Vitor are embroiled in solving a few mysteries, including a murder, a dognapping and some love affairs gone awry. But as they work through a castle full of secrets, the restless warrior and the enigmatic free spirit must also map a new road toward their own happy-ever-after, since it’s becoming clear that they are perfect for each other. Ashe continues her Prince Catchers series with two social outsiders who never knew they were looking for a soul mate until they found one; their romantic journey is filled with lively conversation, quirky mysteries, and a supporting cast that fleshes out the love story in smart, satisfying ways.

Sparkling and witty, with tender romance and sizzling sensuality.
