Er with Lucy's aid The members of Sir William's family seem the most obvious suspects to benefit from the wealthy man's death but his will has gone missing To deduce who sent Sir William to a watery grave Robert and Lucy must investigate with the utmost discretion before they too find themselves in over their head.

A very cute historical cozy mystery Lucy did seem a bit too Mary Sue for my taste but I liked the author s An Italian Education effort to spice up romance and I must say this is probably the most romantic book in the series Thending seemed also a bit rushed in a weird way but overall it is a humorous and interesting read that I d recommend to all cozy mystery fans I hope the seuel is in works Death Comes to Bath35 StarsSir Robert and Lady Lucy Kurland travel to Bath for the treatments and investigate the murder of a new acuaintance Sir William Benson whose abominable family all wanted him dead While the culprit is predictable and the motivation straightforward it is the characterization that really makes the story shine Each member of Sir William s despicable family is drawn in vivid detail and this adds depth and intrigue to the rather mundane mystery Lucy and Robert s marriage is back on track after the difficulties of the previous book Not only has Lucy made a wonderful recovery both physically and psychologically but the love and affection she shares with Robert are delightful There are also updates in the lives of other recurring characters including Lucy s sister Anna and Penelope Fletcher who is growing on me The final book so far Death Comes to the Nursery is next and it promises to be very satisfying Thanks to Netgalley I had the opportunity it s read what I consider the best in this mystery series In the sixth installment Sir Robert and Lucy travel to Bath for the healing waters for Robert s health While in Bath Sir Robert befriends Sir William Benson who Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code ends up murdered by someone in his very obnoxious and grabby family Lucy and Robert become immersed in the family s feuds to solve the murder Lucy s sister Anna and Penelope Sir Robert s former fianc add dimension to the story Highly recommend Audio Review I spotted this series a little while ago and just now had the chance to give it a go I love reading books from the English Regency period and adding in a mystery becomes icing on the cake This was obviously a series that had been out for a while and as I discovered while listening it probably would have worked much better getting it in order since the romance family and friend relationships developed over the course of the seriesNow that said the mystery was restricted to this book and the primary players in the mystery were all new and introduced as well as the setting so in a sense it was pretty Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, easy to readlisten to it as a standalone or out of orderSir Robert Kurland had to undergo surgery for a leg infection that was a complication resulting from his time fighting in the Napoleonic War To aid his recovery his wife insists that they follow his doctor friend Patrick s advice to spend some time in the hot sulphur baths of Bath So to thisnd she rented a house on ueen Anne s Suare and invites her sister Anne along The doctor s wife Penelope invites herselfNot long after they move into their rented home they Daddy Wanted encounter their next door neighbors the Bensons Mr Benson is from the North and built his fortune in trade He knew Robert s grandfather and the blunt crotchety old man starts to become a friend of Robert s But Mr Benson s family dynamics are in shambles He has a pretty younger wife whongages in dramatics and sees the world as revolving around her Mr Benson s three sons and her two sons do not get along with Forbidden Stranger each other orach other s parents while none Snowy River Man except maybe Peregrine Benson gets along with the old man Mr Benson threatens to change his will and does so freuentlynough It s a situation rife for murder and the murder becomes reality soon Night Moves (Harlequin Blaze enough Sir Robert s wife Lucy joins him on the uest to.
