Lori Shepherd's marriage is on the rocks. Husband Bill's an incurable workaholic who seems more interested in managing his family's law firm than in starting a family of his own. Lori tries to rekindle their romance on a second honeymoon at Aunt Dimity's English cottage, but once again, Bill begs off.
Discouraged, Lori takes off for England, accompanied by William Willis, Sr., her staid and reliable father-in-law, who promptly disappears with Lori's pink flannel bunny, Reginald, in tow.
Lori's search for Willis, Sr., leads her into the arms of a devastatingly handsome English cousin and back in time to a centuries-old Willis family secret. By the time she and Aunt Dimity have solved the mystery, a new little Willis is scheduled to toddle onstage.
Atherton has a whimsical, fast-paced, well-plotted style that makes this book a romantic and graceful romp. ---Houston Chronicle
