Become Witness to a Truly Engaging Tale of Action and Romance with The Best Man
The late Victorian era brought plenty of remarkable tales of romance and adventure, but very few authors were as adept at presenting them in an elegant and engaging way the same as Grace Livingstone Hill.
A novel that quite strikingly bears her mark, The Best Man is a story of danger, adventure, unexpected plot developments and, of course, romance, in which the main character has to think fast in order to avoid being killed, keep his clueless new wife from suspecting his true identity and intentions, and hopefully save the entire country by the end of the book.
It all starts when Cyril Gordon, a new, but talented secret service agent, receives the task of recovering some information vital to the national security of the United States, before it falls into enemy hands. A daring escape and a thrilling chase follows, during which he stumbles upon a wedding, and believes to be mistakenly confused with the best man.
Unfortunately, he was, in fact confused with the groom himself, and his new wife Celia is a despondent, beautiful young woman who was set to marry a man she hadn't seen in more than 10 years. Once the confusion is cleared, Cyril and Celia embark on an exciting and dangerous adventure, with the skilled secret agent trying to keep his true intentions hidden, while striving to safely retrieve the coded message he was assigned with as part of his mission.
This is one book you'll definitely not get bored of. The plot is designed to keep you at the edge of your seat, and readers will quickly become fond of both Cyril and Celia as they become the unlikely couple that will lead the outcome of events within the novel.
With fun, unexpected plot twists, engaging dialogue and a masterful writing style typically found in Grace Livingstone Hill's books.
