Publisher's Summary

When Miss Catherine Kent's fiancé, Richard Montague, disappears, she is distraught. Catherine sends for her beloved spinster aunt, Miss Dido Kent. But on the very day of Dido's arrival, a sinister discovery casts unwelcome suspicion on Richard's sudden absence.

Long-hidden family secrets begin to emerge as Dido attempts to unravel the strange happenings. Dido uses her logical thinking to carve a swathe through the ulterior motives of the other guests. When she finally arrives at the startling truth, it is to change the lives of those involved forever. But will it be for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness or in health?

    "Delightful, Thoughful, Intelligent, and Very Funny"

    I took a chance on this one. It has a release-date in October 2008, but one one had even bothered to rate it until now (June 2010). I am soooo glad that I took the chance!!!

    It is well written & well read, and has an amazing attention to detail. It takes place in 1805, and the book is written from the point of view of the spinster-aunt of a young lady who wants to find out the answer to some pretty worrying mysteries in and around her life. The aunt (Dido Kent) is the one sent for because she is known for being too intelligent & too curious for her own good (that's why she's a spinster), and she notices things & finds connections in a very perceptive way. But, because she is the dauter of a clergyman, and still lives a somewhat sheltered life, almost entirely near her various family members, she can occasionally be naive about a few of life's darker, or stranger sides. She is totally beleivable as being of that time - NOT an almost-modern woman in a historic setting.

    Maybe if Jane Austen wrote a detective story, it would be somewhat like this - a comedy of manners with clues & crimes. LOTS OF FUN!!!

    "Don't miss it!"

    I loved this book when I read it so I was so excited to see a book from Anna Dean on Audible I didn't bother to read the descr.... and didn't realize the same book was published under the title, Bellfield Hall. So don't be disappointed like I was... if you've already read Bellfield Hall.
    Otherwise, there's nothing disappointing about this book! Don't miss it!
