Publisher's Summary

When Harriet Unwin takes the position of governess in the well-to-do Thackerton household, it would seem that fortune has smiled on her at last. That is until William Thackerton is found stabbed and Harriet is accused of murder.... In a desperate attempt to prove her innocence, she embarks on a daring scheme to save herself from the gallows. In doing so she uncovers the dark secrets which the family is trying to hide behind a veneer of Victorian respectability.

It was OK.

I listened to it all the way through which is saying something for me because if I don't like a book I will not force myself to listen to it just because I purchased it. Life is too short for something I'm suppose to be doing for pleasure. I believe this was the first in a series and I think the stories might get better so I may try another one. Just an intuition I have. The narrator did well.

Worth It!

This was a risk , taken on the basis of how much I enjoy the Inspector Ghote books. It paid off. The story keeps you on your toes right to the end and is extremely well read. I do seem to enjoy period pieces, whether drama or who dunnits and this did not disappoint.
