Loretta Chase has written a charmer about the second Noirot sister in Scandal Wears Satin. As a former gossip columnist for a tiny Florida newspaper, I envy her heroine’s powers of description in the articles she writes for a TMZ-like publicationof the day. She is surrounded by fabulous gowns to describe in meticulous detail. In my own defense, it would have been hard to wax poetic over the fishing boots worn by the people I encountered.
Mistress-of-disguise Sophy and much smarter-than-he-lets-on Lord Lunmore join forces to bring about a HEA for themselves and for his almost disgraced sister. Maison Noirot gains flocks of new customers. Even his dragon of a mama comes around.
