    I found myself completely immersed within this story that I was surprised when I reached the end I was stuck between being at awed and disappointed that it was over Lucky for for I still had two books to look forward While dealing with subject matters, Anna Lee Huber kept the reader going with a strong mystery that prompt you to continue even when at times the story did tend to slow You along with Lady Darby and Gage pick up small clues that may lead to one thing or another Lady Kiera D I found myself completely immersed within this story that I was surprised when I reached the end I was stuck between being at awed and disappointed that it was over Lucky for for I still had two books to look forward While dealing with subject matters, Anna Lee Huber kept the reader going with a strong mystery that prompt you to continue even when at times the story did tend to slow You along with Lady Darby and Gage pick up small clues that may lead to one thing or another Lady Kiera Darby was a character that I felt deeply for Stuck in a sort of limbo after the death of her husband who was to put it lightly was a major asshat and put her through hell Thrown into this case breaks her out of her hiding and sel...

    This was a great book I whizzed through it in no time always sign of being sucked into a good story , and absolutely can t wait for the next one It was very similar to the Lady Julia Grey books by Deanna Raybourn, which I also love, but the heroine, in particular, is a very different type of person than in Lady Julia.In choosing this particular heroine, the author has a really interesting character She is considered extremely eccentric by the standards of her time However, her eccentricitie This was a great book I whizzed through it in no time always sign of being sucked into a good story , and absolutely can t wait for the next one It was very similar to the Lady Julia Grey books by Deanna Raybourn, which I also love, but the heroine, in particular, ...

    A good enough booklikable characters, some mystery But it was impossible to care even one fig about the murder victim At the end of the book, the murder is solved, but the love interest was unrequited and strung out to the next book, and Lady Darby is still being shunned by society for the sins of her dead husband That meant to me that there wasn t much point to the story The protagonists both male and female needed to be a lotcompelling to overcome the general ho hum of the plot A good enough boo...
