First in a new series that has the perfect mix of Regency murder and mystery. When the marchioness is found murdered at Polbrook mansion, the Dowager Lady Polbrook's new companion, Ottilia Draycott, finds herself in a house of strangers and every one of them a suspect. Only she can unmask and outwit a desperate killer and keep a Polbrook family secret buried.

DNF. Absolutely hated the FMC, who was sleuthing out a murderer and telling the victim's family that she was enjoying herself in the process. The murderer was obvious in the first few pages, but in the meantime, I had to read the thousand ways the FMC was so very clever. I hate quitting a book, but she was so irritating.

Although this kicks off with a slow start, I found the momentum built enough by the end to be thoroughly enjoyable! As I‘m already on to the second book in the series, I‘d give this a solid 3.75 stars for the Georgian distance that took a few pages for me to warm to!

Set in 1789, this was a well-written, entertaining murder mystery with a little romance thrown in. The beginning of a series, it features a curious and highly intelligent young widow who joins an aristocratic family to serve as a lady‘s companion only to become the lead detective in a murder investigation. Perhaps a bit too long, but still a delightful surprise. Second one is out next month. 4/5⭐️
Thanks to #NetGalley and #Sapere for the ARC!
