I really enjoy this historical cozy mystery series. Ms. Lloyd writes such great characters and settings. I suspect some anachronisms (did people go on honeymoons, or call them that, in 1817?) but my grasp of the details of history is weak at best so most will fly right over my head.
The plotting of this one was almost superb, but it sort of fell apart in the last third of the book. Or maybe it didn’t; perhaps the author intended to lead the reader to the conclusion, but the effect felt a bit convoluted and the twist at the end suffered for it. Still I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope there are more to come.
