Lady Charlotte Always Gets Her Man

Forever: Grand Central. Mar. 2024. 336p. ISBN 9781538739693. pap. $16.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Lady Charlotte Lovett is 25 years old and has yet to find wedded bliss. She’s in no rush, but her parents are, and they decide she is to be married to Viscount Hawley, William Talbot, future duke and twice widowed under dubious circumstances. Charlotte refuses to allow the marriage and schemes to uncover Hawley’s malfeasances and secure her own funds in case she must support herself. As she begins to unravel the truth, she suspects that Hawley’s younger brother, Matthew, might be implicated after she observes him acting mysteriously. Shunned by society and bullied by his family for choosing to become a scholar, Matthew has always led an outcast life. Even with his frequent travels for research and clandestine purposes, he has long suspected his eldest brother of nefarious deeds and has tried to prove them, with no luck. When he realizes that his longtime crush Charlotte is now in his brother’s crosshairs, Matthew knows he must act.
VERDICT Marsh’s (Velocity of a Secret) latest is billed as a match for Enola Holmes fans, and with its mysterious turns, commentary on social norms, and endearing romance, the comparison is spot-on, plus some extra heat.
