The inner room of a tobacconist's shop is not perhaps the spot which a writer of fiction would naturally choose as the theatre of his play, nor does the inventor of pleasant romances, of stirring incident, or moving love-tales feel himself instinctively inclined to turn to Munich as to the city of his dreams.
A Cigarette-Maker's Romance
On the other hand, it is by no means certain that, if the choice of a stage for our performance were offered to the most contented among us, we should be satisfied to speak our parts and go through our actor's business upon the boards of this world. Some would prefer to take their properties, their player's crowns and robes, their aspiring expressions and their finely expressed aspirations before the audience of a larger planet; others, perhaps the majority, would choose, with more humility as well as with more common sense, the shadowy scenery, the softer footlights and the less exigent public of a modest asteroid, beyond the reach of our earthly haste, of our noisy and unclean high-roads to honour, of our furious chariot races round the goals of fame, and, especially, beyond the reach of competition.
Published by Echo Library, United States Crawford s intimate knowledge of many countries resulted in an unequalled series of brilliant romances, including varied characters from the glassblowers of Venice, the silversmiths of Rome, the cigarette makers of Munich, and the Bosphorus, simple sailors on the coast of Spain.
But whether the scene be in modern India or the palaces of Babylon, the story fascinates the reader. A Cigarette-Maker s Romance is just such a story, in which a commoner finds herself in love with a handsome young man who works with her in a cigarette-making shop. He claims to be a Russian count who is temporarily down on his luck.

Even the plot twist at the end was incredible. This novel is a delightful find, and well worth the read. While written over a century ago, and describing a time, and manners which are long past, there is a certain timelessness to it.
A Cigarette-Maker's Romance by F. Marion Crawford / Francis Marion Crawford - FictionDB
Not my cup of tea, but that's just speaking for me. Others may like it a lot.
Some books appeal, some don't. Marion Crawford is a very pleasant romance set in Munich at the end of the 19th century.
