Summary of the Book:

An earl with a problem.

Nicholas Masterson, Lord Sharpe, has a problem with potions. He won’t drink them, he craves them, and they’re getting weaker by the day. When his spymaster uncle requests that he travel from London to India to investigate, he reluctantly agrees and hops on an early morning train.

A woman with a plan.

Ida Quimby has set herself a goal: begin a new life as an elite perfumer, selling potion-based perfumes to the highest tier of London society. But when her good-for-nothing brother reneges on his promise to supply her with the magic serum for her potions, she takes matters into her own hands and sets out for India to confront him.

The journey of a lifetime.

A chance meeting on a train brings Nick and Ida together, starting them down a path of mystery and intrigue that could get them both killed. Or lead them to a love for all times. 

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I found the would whimsical and humorous. I love the characters and their interactions on their journey on the train. Ida is working on what she needs to start a business with perfumes and Nicholas is recovering addict and potion specialist. The two of them met on the train and lead them on a mysterious adventure that could end in chaos or them find exactly what the two of them need. The style for this book made it a lot of fun to read and kept the story moving forward. I have to read it all in one setting.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
