This is book 4 in the Lady Lancaster Garden Society series.
Sarah Jardin has been in love with David Rochester since he rescued her from one of her many acts of clumsiness. But David has only viewed Sarah as his younger sister's best friend. But that all changes when they are forced to marry.
David wasn't ready to be married, but he decided to make the most of the situation. The couple is soon embroiled in a case for the Garden Society and as David spends more time with Sarah, he finds that he doesn't like of her as a sister anymore.
Can this forced marriage turn into one based on love?
I really enjoyed this story. I did read the other three books in the series before this one and while this could be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading books 1-3 before starting this one. It will make it that much more enjoyable as you have gotten to know the H/H throughout the series.
Sarah and David had been friends for years and while Sarah has had feelings for David for quite some time, he has never thought of her as anything more than another sister. This makes for an awkward start to their marriage. Neither really knows how to go on with it, which at times lead to many misconceptions about the other.
Throughout the series, Sarah has been the clumsy, awkward friend of the group. As this story progresses, we see her gain confidence in herself and she finally grows out of this stage of her life. It was nice to see her grow through this story.
There is one more book in the series and I can't wait to read it!
