Summary

Lady Adelaide Compton had prepared herself to say good-bye forever to Detective Inspector Devenand Hunter. It would be a welcome relief not to get mixed up in any more murders, even if it meant never working alongside the handsome detective again...wouldn't it? 

But then Addie's prim and proper mother, Constance, the Dowager Marchioness of Broughton, is accused of murdering her secret lover, and there can't be enough gentlemen detectives on hand to find the truth. The dead Duke of Rufford appeared to lead a blameless life, but appearances can be deceiving. And unless Addie and Dev work together, Constance will hang - which is no one's idea of a happy ending.

Narration ruined it

I have listened to the whole
series and the narrator has butchered every book

Awful Narrator

The story is OK but let down by very poor narration. I know the author is American and the narrator, although English, lives and works in America, but the story is set in England with English characters and is read in a posh upper-class English accent. So why all the American pronunciations? "Thur-oh" for thorough, "Paree-shan" for Parisian, "boo-eed" for buoyed, "re-moon-eration" for remuneration, "clurk" for clerk and so on. If it was read in an American accent, it would make sense, but it just jars. Other odd pronunciations (e.g. machinations, Tyrolean, hussar) suggest the reader is simply not familiar with these words. And who ever pronounced the name Alistair with the emphasis on the last syllable?

A series well done!

I fully enjoyed all of the books in this series and am a bit sad to see it end. A true pleasure.

Completely Disappointed

A complete waste of time. I had enjoyed previous books in the series and was looking forward to this.
Not only was it dull I began to dislike the main character. She was so vapid it became hard to believe she would hold anyone’s interest.
More mystery suspense and romance could be found in listening to someone read a fast food menu.

Sort of silly but ok

This lightweight but mystery does not quite make it as cozy British fare. It does include a ghost , a few lords and ladies and the clothing and cars of the 1920s. Good choice for a car or plane trip. A plus: the author kindly resolves all relationships to the reader’s satisfaction
