When socialite Heather Winslow succumbs to her mother's push for a "coming out" ball after her college graduation, she grudgingly agrees to be interviewed by Duke Fieldman. Put off by the newspaperman's disdain but attracted by his good looks, Heather startles him by arranging a date. When she learns of Duke's desire to be a "real" reporter, she's intrigued. Can she help him?

Part of the Debutantes, Heather and her friends solve high-profile crimes. Presenting the evidence anonymously, along with a long-stemmed rose, the Debs become know as "The Rose." When they take on a murder, they cross paths with Duke, who wants to uncover The Rose's identity. The more Duke investigates, the more infatuated by becomes.

Heather, Lorna, and Brittan dig into the case. Can Heather keep her involvement a secret while dating Duke? How can she compete with his mystery-woman fascination?


A cute romp reminiscent of a fast-moving sitcom. Girl meets boy. Boy beneath her class, but oh, so charming. Girl has secret life and boy has issues.

Will they get together? Yes. But will the secrets/issues get in the way? Yes.

Peppered liberally with humor and sleuthing, this was a light-hearted read. Big Honken Chicken Club -- you should be able to handle Heather. Fans of Debra White Smith should likely enjoy it.
