Summary

Can she balance the needs of George with her own, as well as being a private eye? 
Vickie starts her private eye business with only one client. She immerses herself in the case by helping a distressed woman, Alison Kadell, who mourns for her deceased husband, Frank. The more Vickie learns about this case, the further she realizes something sinister occurred with Frank’s death, and the assumed suicide could well be a cover for murder. 
The private eye work distracts Vickie from her renewed commitment to husband George, and her marriage is once more on rocky territory. Vickie is forced to choose what’s important to her, and decide what her heart really desires—being a private eye or a wife. 
Or can she find a way to have both?

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series. 
    In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. 
    Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. 
    Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. 
    The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty:  
    Love ignores every rule…
