Publisher's Summary

Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sister's estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when one of the house guests is murdered, her brother-in-law asks her to aid the insufferable Sebastian Gage - a fellow guest with some experience as an inquiry agent. While Gage is clearly more competent than she first assumed, Kiera isn't about to let her guard down, as accusations and rumors swirl. When Kiera and Gage's search leads them to even more gruesome discoveries, a series of disturbing notes urges Lady Darby to give up the inquiry. But Kiera is determined to protect her family and prove her innocence, even as she risks becoming the next victim.

A good read.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I put off reading this series because of some negative reviews. I finally broke down and got the first book and was pleasantly surprised. It is a good, solid and entertaining read. I immediate read the next two books and enjoyed them as well.

A Victorian Puzzle...A very good read…

A weekend party at a highland castle and a gentle woman is murdered in the maze.
Lady Darby, a talented artist and the disgraced widow of a famous anatomist, spent the last 16 months hiding out at the castle with her sister and brother-in-law. Lady Darby and the insufferable Mr. Gage, a friend of her brother-in-law and guest at the house party, are tasked with uncovering of a murderer. What follows is the puzzle… Piece by piece.
I found the character development in the story very good and the story more than held my interest. Unlike some other reviewers, I enjoyed the narrator. I plan to read the rest of the books in this series.
