Paging Miss Galloway by Susanne Marie Knight is an irrepressibly fun comedy of hidden agendas and mistaken identities all done in the tradition of the late, great Georgette Heyer. Masquerading as a boy, Danielle Galloway runs away to Bath to “rescue” her brother Benjamin, however before she is able to leave town she encounters her first mishap and ends up being rescued herself by Edward Sterling, the Earl of Tremaine and his best friend. As a solution, Tremaine hires “Danny” to serve as his page on his own trip to Bath. This suits them both nicely, that is until Edward starts to notice a few inconsistencies about his young page. Unfortunately for Danny, but to the readers’ great enjoyment, Danny’s identity goes undetected on their journey to Bath while she/he is placed in several compromising and awkward situations where discovery seems imminent yet never quite realized.
Ms. Knight does an exceptional job of keeping the tension uppermost in her readers‘ minds as she keeps Danny from revealing her true identity to Edward while we watch her feelings for him grow deeper. The multiple subplots embedded within the story are a great literary technique. Rather than detracting from the main theme of love recognizing its match in spite of life’s obstacles, the subplots only add to and bolster the story even more. I found Paging Miss Galloway to be a very entertaining and enjoyable romance, just the right book to read when you want to relax for a few hours, and escape in the past.
