Summary

Not many detectives stumble across a crime in the midst of a late-night tryst. But that's exactly what happens to Lavinia Lake and Tobias March, the prickly and passionate pair from Slightly Shady and Don't Look Back, when their weekend getaway at a posh country house turns into a full-fledged manhunt for a killer who targets wealthy older men who are about to wed young beauties. With all the intrigue, humor, and sizzling dialogue that make up her previous best sellers, Amanda Quick delivers a beguiling period romance filled with mystery as well as charm.

Very unrealistic historical mystery/romance.

This started quite well, but I soon got bored with it.
