A Sparkling Regency Romance.
Upon the death of her father, Miss Lucia Luckington returns from school to discover that her meagre inheritance is not enough to keep herself, her cousin Grace and their old governess, Miss Morrison. Something must be done.
Lucia comes up with a Grand Plan to make Grace a successful seamstress, but it will require the efforts of all three ladies to make it work. However, what seemed such a simple idea when they were in Little Furzewell becomes much more complicated in fashionable London, and brings Lucia into direct conflict with that notable Corinthian, Sir Darius Claversham.
Together with her cousin and her friend, Lucia works hard to make a success of her Grand Plan but in the end, the results are very different from what she had envisaged! (First published in “A Season of Romance” Regency Romantics box set, Spring 2019)
