A M Garrod | 2 comments I read this book in the 90s. I thought it was written by Jasmine Cresswell but it doesn’t match any I can see online. This was the 2nd in a series - I think in the first book the hero of the 2nd book hoes off to Brazil in a huff because the girl he loves marries his brother. In the second he comes back to England with a fortune in emeralds and marries a girl who might be called Catherine somehow tricked into it by her stepmother. I seem to remember there’s suspicion that one of the characters is a French spy (set in napoleonic times)
Does this ring any bells?

A M Garrod, are they definitely emeralds? How did he acquire these gemstones?

Is the story set in London?
