Weighing up your options
I’m a fan of Erica Ridley’s books and I’m so happy to see her new series with Darcy Burke. Six new books to look forward to. Erica has done the first and then odd numbers, while Darcy has the even ones.
This series is set in the years following Napoleon’s defeat and this book contains references to his adoption of the metric system of weights and measures. In England, at this time, there were many different “standards” and very little compliance.
This dilemma encourages mathematically minded, single lady, Diana Middleton to go underground to try and fix the whole mess. She feels the only way forward is to remain unseen in the ton and go about her work in secret. Her motto is that if you see something that needs fixing, then fix it.
The Duke of Colehaven has spent years trying to overcome his past as the poor relation that inherits the Dukedom. He wants to make things better for everyone and sits on many parliamentary committees trying to get his voice heard.
They meet, find out they are very attached to each other, but have trouble giving up their ideas on how to go about their individual crusades. They are both very intelligent and their dialogue is witty and challenging. The supporting cast of sisters, cousins and friends add interest, humour and potential for future stories.
This is a great start to a new series or a wonderful book to read on its own.
