The ending was tinged by a hint of sadness. Not because I though Lucian was a perfect match for Kate. But even though knowing she was better off without him, there is a touch of melancholy as she relays his engagement to Miss Nettleton. Is Kate destined to be alone? I wouldn't mind, nor do I think Kate would, either. Though if the right man came along who could accept her independent streak and her investigative ways, I'd give a glad hurrah. Somehow, I'm guessing Ms. Brody's not certain one way or the other, either. If she writes the perfect match for Kate, she might not know until such a character takes definite shape, maybe delivering a pleasant surprise. If not, Kate will be just fine as is.
Another sad part to the ending was the reveal of the relationship between the Gouthwaites and how Selina had been abused for so many years. No wonder the poor woman went mad.
All three issues are resolved by the end of the book. You'll want to read it to find out how.
The truth about the missing brother was as riveting as the rest of the book. There are a few red herrings on this and other mysteries, and the truth seems far stranger (and dangerous) than fiction. I was hesitant to keep reading this after dark, when I do freak out more if I'm startled while reading a crime novel, but I simply had to find out what happened next.
Kate gets to show her motherly side, although at one point her housekeeper turns up, which is good as Kate isn't exactly on top of planning meals in advance, which made me laugh. She goes through a lot with regards to romance, and her decisions were in some respects a surprise because the situation seemed to be matter of fact but there were small hints which direction Kate would take. Sorry if I'm a bit vague, I'm trying not to use spoilers!
Knowing all the plot points I'm looking forward to rereading this adventure with Kate, filled with some expected stereotypes, and others just being plain mean and nasty. I'm looking forward to Kate's next mission!
