Publisher's Summary

The last thing Lady Katherine wants is to take the matchmaking job for Mrs. Burwick, whose daughter, Prudence, clearly does not want to be matched...until she realizes it provides her the perfect cover to investigate the string of robberies that have been taking place in the holiday town of Bath.

Katherine, her loyal maid Harriet, and her tenacious pug Emma soon find themselves knee-deep in troubled waters as they try to piece together the baffling clues to reveal the truth. To further complicate matters, Katherine's investigation is impeded by the incompetent detective hired by the Marquess of Bath to flush out the burglar.

Now Katherine must juggle advising Prudence on how "not" to land a duke, while she dives into the investigation in the hopes of narrowing down the suspects without making waves amongst the aristocracy, some of whom are her primary suspects. When the burglary attempts turn violent, Katherine must take drastic measures to ensure her detective career isn't all washed up before it even gets started.

Not how a Lady should act

I’ve listened to a few of her titles the first book in Scandal and Spies is good and Hazel Martin is ok but rather easy to figure out however Lady Katherine is an idiot and rather short sighted and over estimates her own abilities. No wonder none take seriously

I wanted to like it because I loved the first one,

I wanted to like it because I loved the first one, but there was SO much repetition! Yes, we all know that you are there to solve the Bath mysteries. Yes, we've established you don't trust that guy. I found myself groaning out loud at times. Very disappointing.

I struggled through this book too.

I finally turned up the speed and that helped. But for the most part the stories just dragged. They were filled with details about boring trivial characters and incidents that had nothing to do with the plot. The endings were clever and surprising. But not enough to make wading through the story worth it. My mind wandered so much, I could have listened to the story twice (which I feel like I did re-listening two chapters back at a time). So I’m not going to continue with this author.
