The Honourable Christopher Fancot, on leave from the diplomatic service in the summer of 1817, is startled to find his entrancing but incorrigibly extravagant mother on the brink of financial and social ruin - and more than alarmed to find that his twin, Evelyn, has disappeared without trace. The unfortunate Kit Fancot is forced into an outrageous masquerade by the tangled affairs of his wayward family - his rigid uncle. Lord Brumby, the surprisingly wily Sir Bonamy Ripple, the formidable old Lady Stavely and Evelyn's betrothed, Cressy - but in the face of Evelyn's continues absence. Kit's ingenuity is stretched to the limit.

Probably closer to 2.5 stars.The best way that I can describe it is to say that this book was too "busy". Too much description and entirely too much dialogue. I wanted to shout at the characters to shut up for a while and give me some time to think.The plot was fairly predictable, but I liked the ...

This is a quiet book: no romping and no hilarity, although the premise might’ve supported such excesses. In this tale of two identical twins, all the preconceptions are turned on their heads. Kit, a diplomatic secretary in Vienna, is the rational younger twin to Evelyn, the impulsive and rakish Earl...
