For those with a taste for this genre, and those who want to chance it, I can recommend this novel.( I see no evidence on Amazon of a successor novel nor that this will be the first in a series. Hopefully, this one will draw the readership which will encourage future adventures of this young person.)
Emily is independent minded but is not a "modern woman" per se. Many authors place the liberated attitudes of today's women into their 19th century heroines. That always imparts a false note to my way of thinking. That was not done here.
It is a good murder mystery. Every time I would start to suspect one the the characters as being the murderer, Emily would also start to suspect the same person a few pages on. That would get me thinking that I was on a false trail but I could never be sure. It certainly kept my interest.
I found aspects of this book to both like and hate. The main character is, unfortunately, not too likable. Egotistical and proud, she's also a bit naive and difficult to warm to. Though she, and the rest of the characters, are well drawn, none really tends to draw the reader into the story as much as could be desired. The plot, too, though intricate, is a bit slow at times and feels quite choppy at others. However, the nicely rounded mystery with surprising ending as well as the realistic historical details and setting do make up for some of the book's faults and make it well worth the read, in the end, if you're looking for a nice period mystery. All in all, a three - to - four star read.
