Booklist Review

When a lecherous duke wants to marry New York socialite Isadora Delafield, and her mother approves, household staff and her best friend help her escape to a Pennsylvania farm. As Izzie, she applies for the position of housekeeper at a family farm for lawyer Ian MacKenzie, his elderly aunt and uncle, and the four orphaned children they took in. Izzie can't boil water but soon finds ways she can help the children as she realizes how privileged and shallow her life has been. Ian tries to get information but can't bring himself to let her go, especially after she enlists help and has the farm running better than ever before. Vandalism at the farm shakes up the family, and Izzie's secrets are revealed, along with another danger. Historical details provide a rich environment for Izzie's humorous household exploits, and the matchmaking attempts by the children and aunt add another layer to Turano's delightful romance, the kickoff for her American Heiresses series.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2019 Booklist
