Author Notes

Maggie Robinson is a former teacher, library clerk, and mother of four who woke up in the middle of the night absolutely compelled to create the perfect man and use as many adjectives and adverbs as possible doing so. A transplanted New Yorker, she lives with her not-quite-perfect husband in Maine, where the cold winters are ideal for staying indoors and writing.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Set in 1925, Robinson's lively sequel to 2018's Nobody's Sweetheart Now finds socialite Adelaide Compton staying in London with her younger sister, Cecilia, who insists on frequenting the newest and trendiest nightclubs. Unbeknownst to them, two of London's carefree young clubbers have recently been murdered. While enjoying a night out at the Savoy, Cecilia is poisoned. Enter the ghost of Rupert, Addie's philandering deceased husband, who has been assigned "by the Fellow Upstairs" to be Addie's guardian angel. Rupert's warning and Addie's quick thinking save Cecilia's life. The handsome Scotland Yard detective assigned to the case, Insp. Devenand Hunter, worked with Addie on her first investigation. They again join forces, confronting a series of potential suspects, including a Russian prince who's used to getting his own way with women, a recently impoverished aristocrat, and various arrogant toffs. Despite the slight mystery, readers will enjoy the lively exchanges between Addie, a thoroughly appealing narrator, and her two admirers, exasperating Rupert and smitten Devenand. Fans of witty, romance-infused paranormal historicals will have fun. (June)
