returns with a Jazz Age tale of grand
On the verge of a stilted life as an
aristocrat's wife, Poppy Hammond does the only sensible
thingâ€”she flees the chapel in her wedding gown. Assisted by
the handsome curate who calls himself Sebastian Cantrip, she
spirits away to her estranged father's quiet country
village, pursued by the family she left in uproar. But when
the dust of her broken engagement settles and Sebastian
disappears under mysterious circumstances, Poppy discovers
there is more to her hero than it seems.
only her feisty lady's maid for company, Poppy secures
employment and travels incognitaâ€”east across the seas,
chasing a hunch and the whisper of clues. Danger abounds
beneath the canopies of the silken city, and Poppy finds
herself in the perilous sights of those who will stop at
nothing to recover a fabled ancient treasure. Torn between
allegiance to her kindly employer and a dashing, shadowy
figure, Poppy will risk it all as she attempts to unravel a
much larger planâ€”one that stretches to the very heart of the
British government, and one that could endanger everything,
and everyone, that she holds dear.
