This is book two which I didn't know at the time but it was fine for me as a stand-alone.
Gertrude works for Mrs. Davenport. I loved the character of Gertrude and Mrs. Davenport was okay, although she had reasons for the way she acts.
There are some funny parts in the book as well as a mystery.
I can't believe Gertrude got herself into a predicament with a dress she was wearing a birdcage under. Do not ask read the book.
When the thud was immediately accompanied by what sounded like a yelp, Harrison pushed open the door and stepped into the room. He froze on the spot, though, when his gaze went directly to Gertrude, who was standing in the library, rubbing a backside that seemed to be devoid of the expected clothing.
Oh how funny that scene was and I love Harrison. The slow love between Gertrude and Harrison was sweet.
Gertrude and Mrs. Davenport get caught up in something a little sinister but it all comes out in the end and we find out who the real culprit was.
I enjoyed the side characters as well.
