La Petite Four - Regina Scott

You know I can never resist a pink book, and look at that beautiful dress (although that would NOT have been worn in 1815 in Enland by an unmarried young woman, that's for sure!)I had to pick it up. It turned out to be a nice little mystery about four girls set in England in the early 1800s. Lady Emily Southwell is 16 years old and is just about to have her debutante year...but the plans of her father and her betrothed are quite different.Lady Emily knows there's something suspicious about Lord Robert, the young man to whom she's engaged, but she cannot get her father to listen to her.

Enter La Petite Four. Emily gets her three best friends, Priscilla, Daphne and Ariadne to help her in her secret investigation of Lord Robert, a journey fraught with danger and disobedience. Although she does not invite him, there's a fifth person helping her in her investigation, a dashing mystery man. Without him, Emily may not have solved the mystery - and may not even have lived to tell of it!

Here's a trailer I found for the book on Regina Scott's website.

The first in a series that I'm sure will become quite popular.

Available in the WOMS library.
