A very mannerly, manorly mystery.


This is a very mannerly, manorly mystery, set in Victorian England and starring the widowed Laetitia Rodd and her lawyer brother, who ropes her in on investigations that require a genteel touch. The characters are good, including a truly evil villain, and every detail about the time and place rings true, no anachronisms, my pet peeve in any historical fiction.

Supposed to be first in a series but Laetiticia continually refers to previous cases, so I’m guessing the author is going to be some to-ing and fro-ing in the timeline in future books. I’m up for that.
