Booklist Review

Lord Charles Ingham carries the centuries-old connection between his family and the Swanns to new levels through the unprecedented bond of matrimony when he marries Charlotte Swann, the love of his life. While Charles and Charlotte take an extended honeymoon in Switzerland, the care of the vast Cavendon estate is left to the Four Ds, that is, Ingham's daughters, Daphne, Diedre, DeLacy, and Dulcie, as well as his son, Miles; and his forbidden love, Charlotte's niece, Cecily, the Stella McCartney of 1920s London. As global financial uncertainty and an aging manor house threaten the Ingham coffers, fashion wunderkind Cecily steps in with her uncanny business acumen to salvage the Ingham dynasty, as generations of Swanns have always sworn to do. Life gets even more complicated when Dulcie falls for heartthrob actor James Brentwood, Diedre marries and becomes a mother, and DeLacy becomes engaged to a notorious artist. True love conquers all and loyalty reigns supreme in Bradford's dishy continuation of the Cavendon saga, following Cavendon Hall (2014).--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2015 Booklist
