Summary

Following a whirlwind engagement to Viscount "Lyndy" Lyndhurst, Stella Kendrick is finding her footing within an elite social circle in picturesque rural England. Except tea time with refined friends can be more dangerous than etiquette faux pas - especially in the company of Lady Philippa, the woman Lyndy was once set to marry, and her husband, the ostentatious Lord Fairbrother....                  

Outrage erupts and accusations fly after Lord Fairbrother's pony wins best in breed for the seventh consecutive year. The man has his share of secrets and adversaries, but Stella and Lyndy are in for a brutal shock when they discover his body floating in the river during a quiet morning fishing trip....

Suddenly unwelcome around hardly-grieving Lady Philippa and Lyndy's endlessly critical mother, Stella faces the bitter reality that she may always be an outsider - and one of her trusted new acquaintances may be a calculating killer. Now, Stella and her fiance must fight against the current to catch the culprit, before they're the next couple torn apart by tragedy.

Too much detail not enough mystery.

Incredibly tedious though good narration. This inspired apathy. I didn't bother to finish it.

Great mystery, romance

I particularly like the reader. She helps create a true American personality in 1890s England.

An engaging mystery with endearing characters

For some reason, I found both Stella Lyndi to be quite endearing. I enjoyed the casual and yet honest approach which this author used in the building of their relationship -in that they both seem to be honest and forthright with themselves an each other. I find that most people lie or hide their genuine feelings and then wonder why they are constantly misunderstood. How stupid is that? It is refreshing to not have that “Cat and Mouse” foolishness in a book. Thank you Clara for including this in the development of your characters.
I also appreciate the author’s accurate descriptions and overall familiarity with horses. I even preferred this sequel and second installment to the series, over the first book (Murder at Morington Hall), albeit, I also enjoyed that volume, as well.

Great new series! Interesting and good story.

Fun. Good plot. It’s a mystery. Some romance but not stereotypical and trite plot. No sex scenes which would have been ok but that was not in keeping with the theme. Good writing. Interesting historical context in the time of Downton Abbey. Read the first and enjoyed it as much. I will buy the third when it comes out.
