Edition: First printing.

New York: St Martin's Minotaur, (2001). Hardcover first edition - A stand-alone novel by the author of the Agatha Raisin and Hamish MacBeth series, this "introduces a pair of engaging misfits whose struggles to cope with overbearing families and overweening circumstances teach them, eventually, to rely on each other. When Fellworth Dolphin's mother dies, he finds himself surprisingly relieved and freed from a bondage he was only partially aware of. That's nowhere near the astonishment he feels when he learns that, in spite of their penurious existence, he's heir to a large sum. In a moment of panic, when it seems an aunt might assume the tyrannical role his mother once played, Fell pretends an engagement to mousy waitress Maggie Partlett. In fits and starts, Maggie and Fell begin their separate transformations--she to a swan, he to a drake." (Publisher's Weekly) 218 pp. ISBN: 0-312207727.
