Viscount Lucian Peregrine Gregory Maldon, fifth Viscount of Maldon is minding his own business when his younger brother Arthur comes unexpectedly asking Lucian if he had seen their uncle. He had been missing for a few days and they can’t find him anywhere. Even his fiancee, Louisa doesn’t know where he is which is worrisome because they are to be married in a few days.

The characters in this novel are well developed and full of colorful personalities. I liked them all. The plot is original and drew me in right away. I enjoyed the wonderful description of the world, the culture, and the colorful characters all around them. I really was surprised at the ending, too. My two favorite characters are older fish wives named Mrs. Gow and her best friend Mrs. Gudge. They are the typical hard-working, hard-drinking, poorer woman who are also merry and loyal to those that are their friends. The banter between them whenever they appear made me laugh.

Will, Maggie, and Lucian’s relationship developed well and I liked how the author treated them throughout the story. More like a pair of brothers, and Maggie, rather than three people who met each other in another way. Their getting close was a treat to read.

There are some obstacles along the way and the ending wasn’t what I expected. I won’t give the ending away, but it made me yearn for the next story for these three. It is a friendship that should not be severed and I hope that there is another book that has them together.
