Rumors and gossip-- the lifeblood of London. When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancee, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits-- and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself.

Olivia is one of Julia Quinn's funniest and pluckiest heroines. A real delight!

Quintessential Quinn. Very funny and the romantic situations weren't cheesy at all. I was surprised. Probably one of my favorite Quinn books. Great summer read!

That was a relaxing reading full of funny situations and characters. The only weak part, in my opinion, was the end; I think the author tried too hard. But even that couldn't spoil my impression about that book.
If you like love stories, that is a good one.

Usually I find Julia Quinn’s style unbearably American, anachronistic, and obtrusive. With this novel, her characters are so engaging and sympathetic, and their story so sweetly simple, that her prose didn’t get in the way. I find this marvellous. I didn’t much like the dramatic twist near the end because the tone of the incident disrupted the fun, light atmosphere of the rest of the book, but I’ll acknowledge it made sense as a catalyst to tie up loose ends. Quite satisfying all in all, and it restores my good opinion of Quinn’s underlying talent.
