Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid companion to Mrs. Davenport would be easy. But as she becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes the wealthy Mrs. Davenport has a strange tendency to be a bit light-fingered with other people’s trinkets. Gertrude is relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet summer away from the social scene–until the woman changes her mind in order to help a young socialite launch into society.
When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he’s unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was constantly laughing and loved the dialogue and the characters. There were many misunderstandings between the characters which were sweet and innocent and provided for a bunch of laughs. Harrison was adorable with his blunders with women and yet he was very sweet even though he claimed to not understand women. Gertrude was relatable with thinking she was ordinary and that she thought she had too much extra weight. I found the whole cast of characters to be a delight and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
