My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As I wrote on Instagram…gimme alllll the Regency detective stories. I chatted with a friend about this one (hi Candice!), so I’m incorporating some of her thoughts into this review.
I really liked the Earl of Wrexford — I called him vulpine and repressed, which is pretty much my jam for Regency royalty heroes. Candice thought he was just “meh” and would have kept him in the friendzone.
We both liked Raven and Hawk, the little scamps.
Charlotte was a bit more of a blank slate for me. It does help the reader project herself onto a protagonist, so I didn’t mind it.
The plot was suitably twisty and the setting/atmosphere was great fun. No spoilers, but my friend and I both enjoyed the ending.
