Miss Lattimore’s Letter

Berkley. Aug. 2021. 256p. ISBN 9780593197424. pap. $16. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Sophronia Lattimore impulsively writes an anonymous letter to undo what she considers to be disastrous matchmaking. As no good deed goes unpunished, she’s then faced with a disastrous marriage that she helped arrange. Suddenly she begins to attract attention in high society—a status unfamiliar to Sophie, who is a poor orphan, living off charity from her aunt and cousin since the death of her parents. Sir Edmund Winslow is intrigued by this letter writer, and he approaches Sophie to propose that she turn her talents to finding him a spouse. Sophie soon comes to realize that she doesn’t want to make Edmund a match—unless it’s with her.
VERDICT Get ready to read well past bedtime with Allain’s (Mr. Malcolm’s List) classic Regency romance and its shrewd, funny heroine, who turns her talent for matchmaking into a match of her own. For all public libraries.
