Publisher's Summary

Fans of Jane Austen have fallen in love with Darcie Wilde's mystery series featuring Rosalind Thorne, a young woman adept at helping ladies of the ton navigate the darker corners of Regency England - while revealing Society's most shocking secrets....  

Rosalind is pleased when she's invited to Cassel House to help her friend Louisa prepare for her upcoming wedding. But that's not the only event on her agenda. The trip will also afford Rosalind the chance to see Devon Winterbourne, the newly minted duke of Casselmaine. Devon and Rosalind were on the verge of betrothal before the infamous Thorne family scandal derailed their courtship. Now Rosalind wonders if there's a chance their love might reignite.  

Devon is as handsome as Rosalind remembers and it's clear the attraction they once shared hasn't waned. But their time together is interrupted by one crisis after another - not the least of which is an awkwardly timed request for help from Louisa's friend, Helen Corbyn.  

Not long ago, the untimely death of Helen's brother, William, was ruled a suicide, but few people truly believe he took his own life. Helen needs to know what really happened - especially since she's engaged to the man some suspect of secretly killing William.  

While Rosalind desperately wants to help, she fears her efforts might cast a pall over Louisa's nuptials, not to mention her reunion with Devon. But when another untimely death rocks the ton, Rosalind has no choice but to uncover the truth before more people die...even if her actions threaten her future with Devon.

Not as good as the others

I waited a long time for this book and I’m disappointed. It’s not as good as the others and pretty much tells you her choice in the beginning. Story was all over the place. Not a fan of the narrator either. I wish when a series is written they would stick with one narrator.

Kind of a bummer.

I wanted to like this more. The story has too many characters that are so tertiary and I’ll-established. The romance is also less engaging than the past. Maybe the next book will be more redeeming but honestly this was kind of a downer.

New narrator detracted

I’ve really enjoyed this series, but this switch in narrator was not great. I had a hard time following the story in parts due to the narration. Not the best installment, and I thought it rushed through the love triangle, given how slow and unsure things had moved previously. Nevertheless, I will look for the next installment.

Good story...narrator not so much

Well plotted story. Hard to listen to this narrator though. I really prefer Pearl Hewitt’s narration of other book in this series.

I agree with many others

I really enjoyed the other books in the series. This one not as much. The change in narrator didn’t help, and I couldn’t keep the characters straight.

This one falls short of the past 3 books in series

I was expecting more from this book. The romance is totally lacking, in my opinion, and the plot was somewhat lame and drug on too long. I still like the characters very much. My favorites are Rosalind and Adam, of course. Next is Rosalind's housekeeper (Mrs. Kendrick, I believe is her name) and Alice the newspaper reporter.

So many names to keep straight

I do enjoy this series but got so confused as to who was who & what relationship they all had to each other that about half way thru I had to go back & start over. it was very frustrating.

As Always, a Great Rosiland Thorne Mysyery

Great story. Awful narrerator. Please get the old one from the previous books back. The voice is WAY too old for Rosiland. Almost painful to listen to

This narrator was more "mature" than expected!

This book is well written and interesting, as usual but this particular narrator is much older than the usual readers. Hearing such a mature voice is clearly different when you are used to hearing the story being read by someone much younger.
