With all the charm of a Georgette Heyer novel, the sequel to Bellfield Hall finds Miss Dido Kent vacationing at the home of her cousin. When a neighbor passes away quite suddenly, Dido feels she is ideally placed to observe the reaction of the community, but her suitor, Mr. William Lomax, feels otherwise. As Dido presses on, she learns more about the dirty dealings among the upper classes of Surrey than even she could have imagined. Anna Dean has crafted a delightful historical mystery series; the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.
This is ANNA DEAN’s second novel. She resides in the Lake District of England.
"Delightful. The clever puzzle and pitch-perfect Regency prose will charm readers."
--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review) "Will resonate with fans of Jane Austen's Emma."
