The heroine was, at least at a few points during the book, almost too silly to ensure her continued existence. Lord Robert, however, made up for that oh so much. From now on, please imagine that any time I write "Lord Robert" I do so with a big heart drawn around his name. *sigh*

So Maxie Collins travels with her father to England, but he dies in London and she gets stuck with her uncle and (extremely officious) aunt in the north of England. When she overhears a conversation that possibly makes her uncle complicit in her father's death, she strikes out on her own - deciding to walk to London. From the North of England. YES.

About a half a day into her walk, she meets up with Robert, who she thinks is just some random guy who insists on going with her to protect her from, presumably, sketchy guys much like himself. He's actually Lord Robert, the younger brother of the owner of the estate next door to her uncle's. He's been a spy in Europe for the last ten or fifteen years, so he's got the skillz to make her think he's not actually a Lord. Actually, most of that is her gullibility, but he could totally do it even if she wasn't hugely gullible.

On their trek down the length of England (!) they become close, avoid the brother and aunt who are following them (who are pretty delightful secondary characters, and I felt rather deprived of the fully-fleshed-out novel their story could have had) and discover the truth about Maxie's dad's death. And also, Lord Robert continues to be awesome.
