Abstract:

The lyrical and enchanting Matchmaker of Edinburgh series returns with this third novel following a Scottish matchmaker who uses her uncanny ability to craft perfect matches'no matter what the couple may initially believe. Lavinia Parkem, the most talented dressmaker in Edinburgh, has never forgotten her first love: Captain Andrew Colter. They were meant to be married years earlier but when Andrew's ship was wrecked in the Caribbean her parents forced her to marry another. Andrew may have survived a shipwreck to find fame and fortune at sea, but he never fully healed after Lavinia's abandonment. Instead, he dedicated himself to the navy'and secret missions for the foreign office. Nearing retirement and back on British soil, he's given a new assignment'infiltrate the home of a wealthy banker who's suspected of being behind a plan to assassinate the Prince of Wales. But to do that, Andrew must recruit and turn the woman the banker once wooed: Lavinia Parkem. Unable to shirk his duties, Andrew begrudgingly uses the influence of successful matchmaker of Edinburgh to convince the now-widowed Lavinia to help him take down his mark. She relents, telling herself that Andrew's no longer the warm, loving young man she once knew. But the more time she spends with him, the harder it is to pretend there's no longer any attraction there. And it's tormenting Andrew that he must ask her to put herself in more and more danger and now, he must decide whether his duty to queen and country is worth risking the life of the woman he never stopped loving.
