A Gentleman of Leisure, by P.G. Wodehouse (epub/Kindle)
Bachelor Jimmy Pitt falls in love aboard a transatlantic liner en route to New York City, befriends a small-time burglar, and breaks into a police captain's house as a result of a bet. Things go from bad to worse for the hapless Jimmy as he returns to England and stately Dreever Castle—which is overflowing with imposters, detectives, crooks, scheming lovers, and conniving aunts. A comic romance with mystery elements, in the classic Jeeves & Wooster tradition!
