A lovely series that see’s Lady Rose Summer fighting crime in Edwardian England. Just the right balance of crime, romance and fun. A brilliant escape.
Sick of Shadows by M. C. Beaton
It would seem that even a pretend engagement cannot keep Lady Rose Summer from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season. Their friendship is cut tragically short, however, when Dolly is found dead in the river, with flowers in her hair and blood on her breast. Rose immediately summons her fiance, investigator Captain Harry Cathcart, to help solve the mystery of Dolly's death - and to keep her from becoming the murderer's next victim.
ReviewsAn amusing brew of mystery and romance that will keep fans turning the pages. Publishers Weekly Fans of the author's Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin mysteries ... will welcome this new series of historical whodunits. Booklist
