Geoffrey Westmore follows Miss Mary Channing into the library during a literary salon. He’s sure she’s leading him on, but she is only giving in to shyness and making her escape from the crush. When someone approaches, they hide behind the draperies only to overhear a nefarious plot being hatched. The conspirators leave, but West and Mary are discovered in a compromising position by the rest of the assembly.
The couple try their best to prevent the impending crime. The problem is nobody will take them seriously. He’s been a prankster all his life, and she is known for her vivid imagination.
The plot was unusual enough to keep me guessing with a nice twist at the end.
Mary would be an ideal contestant on Jeopardy. Her extensive reading has equipped her with an eclectic knowledge base that proves to come in handy more than once. West is a little heavier on brawn than brains, so the twosome complement each other nicely.
Smart girls rule.
