Description
In this sequel to Anna Dean's delightful Austen-esque debut mystery Bellfield Hall, we find Miss Dido Kent vacationing at the home of her cousin Flora in Surrey. When a nearby grand dame passes away quite suddenly, Dido feels she is ideally placed to observe the reaction of the community in the wake of accusatory rumors—as she writes to her sister Eliza—although her suitor, Mr. William Lomax, feels otherwise. Yet Dido presses on, hoping to prove the innocence of the lady's nephew, Henry Lansdale, and learns more about the dirty dealings among the country gentry than even she could have imagined.

"Delightful. The clever puzzle and pitch-perfect Regency prose will charm readers."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The plight of a gentleman raised in luxury yet entirely dependent on the good will of elderly relatives will resonate with fans of Jane Austen's Emma."—Publishers Weekly
