Mini-review: Oh my goodness, Mrs. Rathbone ruined this novella for me. It would've been so much better if she had either been removed or toned down by about ten, and stopped the accusations and demands. Other than that I enjoyed it. I liked the ending, but would've liked Simon's take more than "marry us we love you."
