About this deal

Non mancheranno avventure piene di ritmo che, più di una volta, sembrano maggiormente adatte a un bel noir old England rispetto a un romance vittoriano.

It is at this party where Lady Mary also meets Colonel Walter Trefusis, a distinguished and extremely handsome war veteran. Big names garner headlines and Ferguson’s debut Her Heart for a Compass, which featured the Titian-haired, befreckled beauty Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott (any resemblance to the author entirely deliberate), was a surprise bestseller in 2021. Mary è cresciuta come una donna fuori dal comune, in cerca di una propria identità e libera di fare esperienze diverse da quelle delle sue coetanee. Durante un evento di caccia, a cui sono presenti molti nobili invitati dai genitori, ha l’opportunità di mettere in luce le abilità deduttive e il sangue freddo che la contraddistinguono, venendo a capo di un piccolo mistero che ha come protagonista una spilla di grande valore.

The writing flowed well and with charm, building the era and clothing and world without overdoing it.

The silver lining has meant that she has been free to develop her own mind and interests; and only pretends to be a meek and mindless young lady when her parents, or other members of society are around. Amongst all the limitations and expectations placed upon women at that time, The Duchess of York has played around with the facts and created some what of a sleuth with her heroine, Lady Mary.This is the second book in the series, by Sarah Ferguson and Marguerite Kaye, but is a standalone story the first being about Mary’s older sister Margaret. The characters, by and large, are likeable and interesting with the bulk of the focus rightfully on Mary and Tre.

The mystery aspects were spread out through the book like little vignettes, building in importance as Mary learned and grew into who she was meant to be.sigh* Each and every one of the characters was so well painted and each breathed life on its own (my favourite, besides Mary and Tre, is certainly Lady Rolle). Overlooked and underestimated by all who meet her, the wallflower daughter of Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch has a sharp intelligence and keen powers of observation.
