The redoubtable Tribble sisters are almost outfoxed by a young lady thrown on the London marriage mart, as they undertake another enterprise of matchmaking. Fiona McCloud, an implacable beauty, seems averse to marriage and is adept at dispatching would-be suitors for her hand and fortune. Her attitude undergoes a sea change with the appearance of rakish Lord Harvard. As he attempts to gain the approval of the Tribbles, a cast of familiar characters sets in motion the adventures that will aid and frustrate the spinster sisters as well as secure the proverbial romantic conclusion. The Regency formula is once again applied with panache and a foreshadowing of the next volume.
