Andrew, the Duke of Harrow, has returned to his Oxfordshire estate after years away in Vienna on a diplomatic engagement. He left England after losing his beloved wife in childbirth. But his children consider him a stranger, and the new governess disapproves of him.

In hope of restoring his family, he has invited a German baroness who may become the new Duchess of Harrow, and her brother, as his guests. Andrew’s plans do not go to order. Were there three attempts made on his young son William’s life, or are they a string of amazing coincidences? Why would anyone want to harm William? Andrew finds himself working with the governess to discover the truth while keeping his son safe, and disconcertingly, comes to depend on Miss Harrismith, as his respect for her deepens. When the truth finally becomes clear, Andrew faces his feelings, but then finds his chance of happiness snatched away.

Miss Jenny Harrismith, the daughter of an impoverished baron from Yorkshire with six children, leaves home after a disagreement with her father, taking a position as governess to the Duke of Harrow’s two children. After a year at Castlebridge, when the duke barely makes an appearance, she has found a certain peace, and become very fond of her charges. But the duke has arrived home to stay, and suddenly, there is no peace to be found. Frightening things begin to happen. As she fights to keep the duke’s son safe, she finds herself falling in love with his father.

Thrust into danger, and coming close to death, she realizes she must face the truth of what she left behind in York.

A great new book from Maggi Andersen and it’s brilliant.

I really enjoyed this book, Andrew Duke Of Harrow is about to meet his match , his partner in love, in Miss Jenny Harrismith his children’s new Governess .
They are going on a wild adventure, one that will pull them in all directions, they will be betrayed, their lives will be altered and upended, they will realise the only people they can count on to help them ,are their very close friends and each other .
A wonderful book full of emotion and romance, and as always a little tension .
Loved it !

What a wonderful story! Andrew returns to his estate after being away for years as a diplomat. Andrew. Brings home a woman he is thinking about marrying. Eager to get to know his children again, he is impressed by how much his children love Miss Jenny. As he gets to know her he realizes how much she loves them. Drawn to Jenny he can’t help compare her to the woman he is possibly going to marry. When someone attempts to kill his son Andrew and Jenny must work together to keep the children safe. This was such a sweet story, but I found it to be a lot more. Loved both Andrew and Jenny’s characters. I loved the mystery and love how Maggi Andersen’s other characters from her books make appearances. I have enjoyed reading her other stories and thoroughly enjoyed this one. I definitely recommend book!

5 Stars!
