Bath, England, 1890. Mystery author Lady Amy Lovell receives an anonymous letter containing shocking news: her fiance, Mr. Ronald St. Vincent, has been dabbling in something illegal, which causes her to promptly break their engagement.

Two evenings later, as Lady Lovell awaits a visit from Lord William Wethington, fellow member of the Bath Mystery Book Club, her former fiance makes an unexpected and most unwelcome appearance at her house. She promptly sends him to the library to cool his heels but later discovers the room seemingly empty--until she stumbles upon a dead Mr. St. Vincent with a knife in his chest.

Lord Wethington arrives to find Lady Amy screaming and sends for the police, but the Bobbies immediately assume that she is the killer. Desperate to clear her name, Lady Amy and Lord Wethington launch their own investigation--and stir up a hornet's nest of suspects, from the gardener who served time in prison for murder to a vengeful woman who was spurned by St. Vincent before he proposed to Lady Amy.

Can they close the book on the case before the real killer gets away with murder?

  1. Hi Carol,

    I don’t read too many ‘cozies’, however it is always good to have a few titles on standby, for those times when I have read a few back to back books with more challenging or disturbing storylines.

    Mind you, I don’t really need yet another title for my easy reading list, as NetGalley is so addictive that I will simply never have a reading shortage!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy Reading πŸ™‚
