The Reluctant Impostor. By Muriel Hine. (Lane. 7s. 6d: net.)—In

this agreeable if conventional love story Miss _Muriel Hine has used with some skill the hackneyed imbroglio brought about by the impersonation of the dead. In this case the heroine is as punctilious an imposter as one could desire, and receives that poetic justice which in an orthodox novel such deception as hers necessarily involves.
