Lady Winifred Westerly has her heart set on marrying Richard, Viscount Danleigh. Unfortunately, the obstacles to their happiness seem to multiply daily. Bad enough that Winifred is known to half of London as "Flighty Freddy," but Dickie's reputation is rather shocking as well, and now Dickie's mother, the notorious Mrs. Picket, has come back to England and installed herself in the same house with Dickie's father the Duke of Darke's Reach. Freddy's over-protective father and godmother have forbidden her to marry into such a disreputable family. Something must be done.Will Lady Fred be able to rehabilitate her fiance's family by convincing Devil Darke to remarry his divorced wife, or will an accusation of murder separate her from Dickie forever?"In this sprightly mystery, author Melissa McCann has found her balance between likeable characters and a house full of believable suspects. Lady Freddy, who excels at keeping those around her confused, never lets her own feet off the ground - though it appears Dickie can teach her a thing or two about enjoying dizziness. Few people besides Dickie understand Freddy's off-the-wall observations, but Dickie's mother can. Freddy and Mrs. Picket become savvy allies in dealing with Dickie's father and with the dysfunctional Dashwood family. Her experiences with her own disreputable mother allow her to fit right into this questionable household, with highly entertaining results."From the look of things, we will get to know Freddy's outcast mother when the final book of the trilogy, THE SCANDAL, comes out. DARKE'S FOLLY is delightful company. I know I'll be rereading it." Reviewed by Joy Calderwood of Readers Choice Reviews
