Book Description:

What do you get when you combine a wickedly sharp heroine with a case of mistaken identities, a houseful of quarantined high-society dinner party guests, and a jewel thief? A comedy of errors, a madcap mystery, and a love story rolled into one--When A Man Marries by Mary Roberts Rinehart, the grande dame of early twentieth century mysteries!

When Kit's dear friend Jim springs the news on her at a dinner party that his overbearing Aunt Selina is due any moment for an impromptu visit, and that he is too ashamed to tell his aunt that his wife, Bella, divorced him, Kit reluctantly agrees to pretend to be Bella, whom Aunt Selina has never met. The rest of their friends think this will be great fun to watch, and they settle in for an evening of entertainment as only Kit McNair can deliver.
