Book #1 The Husband Hunters Guide To London. For an innkeeper's daughter new to the dance, a discreet volume of courtship wisdom may help discern the intentions of a mysterious newcomer. Lucy Holbrook has recently inherited her father's south London inn, the place she's always called home. Now her fashionable friends, arming her with The Husband Hunter's Guide to London, are urging her to sell the establishment and become a society lady, just as her father always hoped. Lucy would rather toss the little book into the hearth-she could never desert the alehouse or its patrons. But she may need every bit of good advice when a stranger arrives with a secret agenda and a baffling crime to solve and Lucy finds herself navigating a most dangerous attraction!
