Fans of romantic intrigue with period trappings might try Someone to Love by Mary Balogh. Anna Snow (no relation to John Snow), who grew up in an orphanage in Bath, discovers that the late Earl of Riverdale was her father and that she has inherited his fortune. Her relatives, now disinherited, are not so pleased, and she is a stranger to the ways of Society. “Engaging characters and clever dialogue” mark this modern –day Cinderella story.
