Librarian Phoebe O’Dunn deals in stories, but her passion for history has taught her that happy endings are rare. Her life in Knights Bridge, Massachusetts, is safe and uneventful—until she discovers the hidden room. Among its secrets is a cache of vintage clothing, including a spectacular gown, perfect for a gala masquerade in Boston. In the guise of a princess, Phoebe is captivated by a handsome swashbuckler who’s also adopted a more daring persona. Noah Kendrick’s wealth has made him wary, especially of women: everybody wants something.

When Noah and Phoebe meet again in Knights Bridge, at first neither recognizes the other. And neither one is sure they can trust the magic of the night they shared—until an unexpected threat prompts them to unmask their truest selves. After all, it takes more than just the right costume to live out your personal fairy tale. It takes heart and the courage to be more than you ever dreamed possible.

    " Slow paced........not enough details. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Muehl | 2/9/2014

    " This was a sweet romance that I really enjoyed because of the rich characters, but also because of the setting. It took place in a cozy little New England village in the area of the Quabbin Reservoir...an area that I am very familiar with. There are also scenes in Boston, San Diego, and The Hotel Del Coronado. It felt like it was written for me because these are all special places to me. It was a comfy read for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marge | 1/12/2014

    " Mind numbing dialogue, constant repeating of storyline details, main characters act like they are in high school. The author believes readers forget from one page to the next what town they are in, every conversation or mental musing mentions Knightsbridge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Holland | 12/21/2013

    " I won this in a giveaway. Got to love books about librarians! I would recommend this book for anyone that loves a great romance novel. "

    " 3.5 stars. I always love a good story by Carla Neggers. I've liked some of her other stuff better though. The Swift River Valley novels are nice light romances though. A good break if you've been reading a bunch of intense stuff. Though I haven't lately. LOL! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marjorie | 10/26/2013

    " A secret room filled with vintage clothing, a costume ball with disguised people, this book had it all along with a little mystery. Carla Neggers nailed it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 9/22/2013

    " Yes, another wonderful book. The story picked up well after the 1st and developed wonderful new characters and gave more quality to the former characters. Looking forward to book 3! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 9/9/2013

    " I found this book slow-paced and mainly uneventful. Ok read when no other current releases have come out "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebecca Dean | 7/6/2013

    " Story did not go anywhere, the title had NOTHING to do with the plot and so slow moving - it drove me crazy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorothy Timm | 4/20/2013

    " It was OK, but I was really disappointed that there wasn't anything about the Quabbin, as there had been in the previous book of her series. Otherwise, it was OK, enjoyable enough that I'd consider reading another of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn Harris | 3/20/2013

    " A fine new romance by Carla Neggers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 2/17/2013

    " Loved the book, different set of hero and heroin, with a nerd and a librarian, but a very easy read, and loved how each relationship in the story balanced each other out. More based in reality type love story. "
