Do not judge a book by its cover especially where we'll dressed young men are concerned. Our hero of the hour had everyone fooled into thinking him incapable of finding the murderer. A good old fashioned who done it with wonderful description of the time and place. What good old days?

2.0 out of 5 stars Strange story 14 Mar 2014
By Ann Mac
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed parts of this book but the characters were not terribly believable also the ending seemed very abrupt leaving the reader hanging about the presumed hero and heroine seeming to indicate that they would not meet again

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 14 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this Regency murder mystery. Mr Hide, the central character is engaging, even though he is given to some introspection. All the characters are well drawn. I was initially taken aback by the explicit sex, but then remembered that modern Regencies are going that way. However Miss Austen would be shocked; shocked, I tell you. :) Overall this is an enjoyable romp as someone else has stated. I was disappointed that Mr Hide and Emily did not get together. But I suspect there is still time for that in a further novel. I am sure we will see more of Mr Hide.
