unearths some literary gems.
From A Lady's Guide to Gossip and Murder, by Dianne Freeman:
"Ladies," he said with a tip of his straw boater. "I was hoping to find you here. Well, actually I was only hoping to find you, cousin Frances."
He paused, but as I drew breath to speak, he continued. "Not that I didn't want to find you, Lady Fiona, just that I wasn't actively seeking you, you understand? Good to find you all the same. Rather like looking for a book you'd mislaid somewhere and stumbling across another that turns out to be equally diverting."
"Couldn't believe my luck in receiving this invitation. Thought I was definitely persona non-something or other."
