First Edition. Coles Phillips dustjacket art and F. Vaux Wilson illustrations. After the untimely death of the proprietor, our narrator, a life-long and very loyal employee at a health spa, conspires with various guests and authorities to help keep the business open while the heir can be found and convinced to accept the terms of the eccentric will. They enlist a mysterious stranger to impersonate the heir. Then the heir turns up, but he has to be hidden away with his new, secret bride, because her family (also guests of the spa) disapprove of the marriage. All the while, the heroine is too much at her wit's end the entire book, trying to variously lie to, hide, or appease people. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow chips at spine ends and flap corners, some soiling to white panels.
