With all the charm of a Georgette Heyer novel, the sequel to Bellfield Hall finds Miss Dido Kent vacationing at the home of her cousin. When a neighbor passes away quite suddenly, Dido feels she is ideally placed to observe the reaction of the community, but her suitor, Mr. William Lomax, feels otherwise. As Dido presses on, she learns more about the dirty dealings among the upper classes of Surrey than even she could have imagined. Anna Dean has crafted a delightful historical mystery series; the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.

The solution to the mystery was interesting. Dido is a product of her times as far as the role of women, although it was tiresome to be reminded of what was or wasn't expected of her.

The second book in the Dido Kent series

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

Interesting idea for a series - this is set in England in the very early 1800s - and a hard time for a respectable woman to appear to be 'thinking for herself'. I'll read more of Anna Dean. The solution to the mystery had a twist I liked.

Anna Dean begins to put flesh on the bones of her character. In this work, the observations of Miss Dido Kent are as sharp as those of Sherlock himself. Readtoday
