Working for the Radcakes is the only life that Ewan Hales has known. Just as he is about to get a big promotion, Ewan finds out that he is heir to the Earl of Fitzwalter. Just as he is about to turn in her resignation, he encounters Matilda Redcake. Having always been a working class man, he wasn't good enough for her. But now that he is heir to an earldom, he might just have a chance.
Having come to London seeking answers about a bad batch of cakes, Matilda is surprised to see Ewan a little out of sorts (finding out you are someone's heir after being alone for most of your life, will do that do you!). Trying to find a solution to their cake problem, they find themselves falling for each other.
Will it all fall apart when Matilda finds her son has been kidnapped?
I liked this story. We have the romance between Ewan and Matilda as well as the mystery of who kidnapped Matilda's son. The pace is pretty quick and kept me eagerly reading to the very end. It was also nice to see some of the characters from the previous books and learn where their lives have taken them.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series which stars Matilda's cousin, Greggory.
