Miss Adeline Hayes is the perfect lady's companion: pleasant, conversational, and unceasingly proper. But when her closest friend, Charity Edgeworth, breaks off her arranged marriage without explanation, even Adeline's superior skills are put to the test. Charity's father banishes the two young women to the country, sending Adeline with a charge to find Charity a husband or suffer dire consequences.

As Adeline takes on the role of reluctant matchmaker, she discovers more than one obstacle in her path. Not only does Charity prefer escaping in books to socializing, but Adeline soon finds her own attentions distracted by the standoffish—and irritatingly handsome—Mr. Evan Whitfield. Amidst an eventful foxhunt and the unexpected arrival of Charity's former betrothed, Adeline simply doesn't have time for a battle of wits with Evan. But the two are continually drawn together until Adeline begins to question her tightly guarded convictions about love and marriage.

However, when secrets are revealed and truths made known, Adeline must face her most fearsome obstacle yet: herself.

I loved the first book by this author and was excited to start reading this one! Adeline, or Addie, is a lady's companion and close friend to Charity. When Charity breaks off her engagement, her father sends them away with strict instructions to Addie to find a match for Charity or there would be serious consequences for her family. Addie finds the perfect match for Charity, but there are complications.

The story is told from Addie's point of view. She is an easy character to like but has some flaws, which made her easier to relate to. She and Evan got off to a rocky start, and I liked how their relationship developed. I also enjoyed her relationship with Charity. She made some mistakes which she was able to learn from.

I thought this book was great and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys reading clean Regency romance! I'm looking forward to reading even more from this author in the future.
