In this novel, the pretender to the French Throne is swanning through London: penniless, arrogant, lecherous, and a friend of the Prince of Wales. When artifacts belonging to Marie Antoinette are stolen, Lady Emily urges one victim to make the loss of a pink diamond public. No spoilers, I won't tell you more about what happens next. In an age of famous-for-being-famous, when outrageous, ungracious behavior is the boring norm, and "reality" shows bring out the bizarre worst in everyone, these charming books are a welcome respite and remind us of how pleasant life could have been (with servants, of course). Read this elegant series, you will love it. A 5.
