Book Excerpt: 
. . .There had been a queer sound all along, but now I made it out. Some one else was in the room, sniveling and crying.

"My poor lamb!" it whimpered. And I knew it was Mrs. Hutchins, Miss Patty's old nurse.

"Perhaps," said Miss Patty, "you also deny that you were in Ohio the day before yesterday."

"I was in Ohio, but I positively assert—"

"I'll send for the police, that's what I'll do!" Mrs. Hutchins said, with a burst of rage, and her chair creaked. "How can I ever tell your father?"

"You'll do nothing of the sort," said Miss Patty. "Do you want the whole story in the papers? Isn't it awful enough as it is? Mr. Carter, I have asked my question twice now and I am waiting for an answer."

Thought this would be a mystery, but really more of an entertaining funny story told from the point of view of a thirty something woman.

Minnie grew up at Hope Springs and inherited the care of its famous spring from her father, who tended it before her. She is grieved at the early death of its owner and fears for its future existence when its care falls to a man who is known to lack the will and desire to pursue any serious endea...more

This was such a fun read! Minnie was such a refreshing narrator. I loved her style. I felt so annoyed with her at times, or at odds with her, and yet I felt sympathetic to her and and other times I just wanted to cheer for her and I really liked how everything came together. It was also...more

An enjoyable old screwball comedy where everyone ends up married or just happy ever after.
