Publisher Description

London’s best and most covert spy tries to escape the man who has always adored her.

New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming story of enduring love set in her popular Parasolverse, narrated by Emma Newman.

Intelligencer

Agatha Woosmoss, the Wallflower, is the greatest intelligencer of her generation. And no one knows she exists. She has been invisible, capable, and cunning for well over four decades. Her greatest skill is in her ability to go forever unnoticed. Except by one man. 

Versus Intellectual

Pillover Plumleigh-Teignmott is a professor of ancient languages at Oxford University. He’s tried to ignore his training as an evil genius and live a quiet life away from politics and intrigue. 

When an assignment goes horribly wrong, Agatha must hide and heal. So she goes to ground with the only person who’s always kept her safe: Pillover. 

Can Pillover hold on to the deadly woman who specializes in getting away? Will Agatha realize that patience is indeed a virtue, and that perhaps it is good to be noticed by the one who waits? 

Spinning off from Miss Gail’s Finishing School series, this story stands on its own and spans decades, but was written after Defy or Defend. May contain vampires, old injuries, lost love, and the reappearance of many favorite characters. If you like gruff but caring men with secret sorrows and the tough smart women they love, you’ll also enjoy How to Marry a Werewolf, also narrated by Emma.

A Sweet Tragedy

For me, rarely do actual tears result from reading. But the needless self denial of these two tragic figures was so sad.

I thought the plot spur with the Brass Octopus Society was to be Lord Akeldama’s behind-the-scenes manipulation to reward Agatha by getting her together with Pillover. But alas no.

Adored it!

reading this story about one of my favorite characters made my heart swoon! The pining and romance is so aaaa!!! And the way passing of time is validated through other books is so exciting! Agatha and Pillover are the cutest couple and Agathas sense of duty and work life really resonates as I’m in a ldr for school! Loved this so much!!!
