But Jack, reluctant to be ordered about and to lose his freedom too quickly, doesn’t show up at the meeting, thus offending both Kitty and Matthew.
Such an adorable man and just the perfect match for Kittie once she comes around to realising it. I love them for it. In this book there actually are four romantic well, more or less romantic couples: Unless he’s been on the mop, and that doesn’t seem likely.
