"A wild contemporary romantic suspense"
Bored at the Wemberly Masque even with four police cars
entering the driveway, Lucinda Hollander searches for her
beau Archie Conlon. To her surprise, Archie, in his Bozo
the Clown wardrobe places a ring on Lucinda's finger.
Before she can regain her equilibrium and remove the too
small ring, Archie jumps through a window. The police
arrest Lucinda for the murder of George Jacobs, though she
insists she has never heard of the man. Rather than do the
rational thing and go with the cops, Lucinda jumps through
the same window that her fiancÚ used as his exit.
Lucinda who has never worked in her life disguises herself
as Lucy French, obtaining employment as a housekeeper to a
wealthy Kentucky family. However, if her poor work habits
don't unmask her, her growing feelings for Max "car guy"
Hogan will for she is falling in love with the racing car
Readers who enjoy a wild contemporary romantic suspense
with the emphasis on laughter will clearly want to read THE
RING ON HER FINGER. The story line never takes itself
serious even when Lucy finds herself in trouble and on the
lam. The secondary characters provide the fullness that
enable fans to appreciate the antics of the lead female
character and the bewilderment of the prime male hunk who
feels as if he was hit by a vehicle at a 100 MPH upon
meeting Lucy. Though their relationship takes a back
seat to humor and the murder subplot, Elizabeth Bevarly
provides a fun frolic for fans of the sub-genre.
