In Bath, impoverished war Widower Mrs. Georgina Mowbray knows she is fortunate to have become companion to the affluent elderly Lady Russell. The only negative in her current situation is her employer’s nephew the Earl of Coniston.

Lady Russell adores her dedicated companion; so when threatening letters arrive that frighten Georgina, she notices the change in her employee’s demeanor. The aristocrat asks Con to investigate, but Georgina, distrusting him, refuses to cooperate. Her fears grow immensely when she sees someone who looks like her late abusive husband Robert outside her window. That and her observation of how kind Con is towards his aunt and others lead Georgina to tell him what she knows and did. As people are murdered, Con vows to keep safe his precious aunt and the widow he loves.

The second Wicked Widows Regency romantic suspense (see Why Dukes Say “I Do”) is a fabulous historical amateur sleuth romance. The cast is solid, but the key to this great read is the predominant focus on the whodunit as the falling in love subplot supports the mystery.
