Well! No one wants to be faced with this situation! Lady Emily and Colin have been married approximately eight (8) years. They are in Greece with their long time friend Jeremy and Lady Emily’s American friend Margaret. Lady Emily loves all things Greek and is completely enjoying herself among the ruins, absorbing every detail of her time in the ancient ruins and relics. Quite unexpectedly, Lady Emily is soon face to face with her deceased husband, Lord Phillip Ashton! That’s right, Philip has returned from the grave claiming he was never dead, but seriously ill. Is he really Philip Ashton or is he a clever and convincing imposter??? Not only are Lady Emily and her current husband facing a difficult situation with Philip returning from the grave, but he claims he is being hunted by an illegal antiques trader, who believes Philip is in possession of a rare and valuable antique.
I’ve been reading this series in order, however, when I read the blurb on the back cover of this book, I didn’t want to wait. What an intriguing story!!! I loved it. Lady Emily is a strong protagonist. Again and again she is faced with difficult situations and again and again she proves she is up for the challenge. Emily’s friend Margaret isn’t a wimp and assists her friend in whatever way she can, although, she feels left out of the adventure at times. In this story, Jeremy is recovering from heartbreak. His engagement is ended. He was to marry an American, but that’s over. So, the four, Colin, Emily, Jeremy and Margaret, must uncover the truth of the mysterious husband returning from the dead and the antiques trader who is seeking Philip Ashton’s life.
