Over a decade ago, someone murdered Lady Beatrice Afton in Afton Manor in Petworth, Sussex.  No one was accused of the homicide. 

 

Over the years, Beatrice’s daughter Lady Sophia never turned to her arranged by her mom betrothed Langdon Bourne for comfort or help with her obsession to find her mom’s killer.  Instead she studied criminology so that by 1813 she feels ready to investigate her mom’s homicide.  She believes the one person who could assist her with achieving her objective has come home after years abroad amassing a fortune in India.  She pleads with Langdon’s brother Nicholas to be there on her investigation.  He reluctantly agrees as he obsesses over keeping the woman he has loved seemingly forever safe on their journey of discovery.

 

The latest rousing Regency Rogues (see The Saint Who Stole My Heart) is a terrific historical romantic mystery made stronger by Langdon being a decent honorable person.  The amateur sleuthing is fun to follow as forbidden passion between the daring duet makes their inquiry that much more difficult.
