    This book is a mystery set in 1851 in England. This is the second book in the series, but it works as a stand alone. Laetitia seemed rather dense in this book. She believed people who were lying to her and otherwise assumed people were as good as she wanted them to be. She muddled arou...

    4.5 stars This was an enthralling read. It was told in the first person by Laetitia Rodd, a 53 year widow. It was written in an engaging style. Her brother Fred, a barrister, was quite a colourful character and he did make me chuckle. Laetitia, worked, on occasions as an investigator ...

    3.5 starts! I enjoyed this book, I found the writing style quite "charming', although I felt it dragged a little 3/4 of the way through only to pick up again at the end. I will read the first mystery in this series as a result of enjoying this one. ...

    Set in 1851, and bursting with larger-than-life characters, this is a very recommendable good read. ?Dickens-lite? is a compliment, since Dickens was so in tune with what the readers of his day wanted that this is the kind of story he would be writing were he alive now. A convol...
