Publisher's Summary

To stop a high-society killer, she'll have to play matchmaker one last time....

Lady Katherine would rather chase clues than suitors. Her reputation as a matchmaker could give her the cover she needs to follow in her detective father's footsteps. If she catches the Pink Ribbon Killer before he strikes again, she'll win her dowry and her independence in the process....

One look through the exclusive Northbrooke estate house party doubles her suspect list. With the help of her trusty maid and her precocious pug, Katherine risks it all to unmask the killer. But is winning her freedom worth putting another debutante in mortal danger?

Story was good, but narrative was repetitive.

Story and plot were good, but multiple recaps of scenarios were annoying. Could have reduced 30 minutes or more.

Cute, cozy mystery

This was a very relaxing and entertaining story. It’s also a very fast read. I did have to turn the speed down almost immediately on starting the story. I liked the dog Emma for another facet of this story.

An Invitation to Murder is a invite to advoid.

Can you say dumbed down to the point of stupid. Why would a progressive female of any era portray herself as really slow on the up take and clueless when looking into murder. I could not relate and will not continue with the series.

Slow and repetitive

Book has a slow pace and poor to no character development. Concepts in the book are repeated several times. We didn’t miss the idea the first time

I could not finish

I am sorry to give a bad review. I did not care for the reader I couldn’t get past the monotone voice and I could not begin to focus on the story. I truly can’t even say anything good or bad about the story because I could not focus on it.

Fin story with great narration.

I look forward to following the adventures of Lady Katherine. This spunky Regency period adventurer would have been friends with Jane Austin's Emma. The narrator used of voices made it easy to follow conversations.
