This review is from: Death at Glamis Castle (Victorian Mystery) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the ninth in this series of well-written and carefully researched cozy period mysteries, which started off as Victorian mysteries. Now with the death of Queen Victoria and her son, Edward, having ascended to the throne, this series is more appropriately referred to as an Edwardian mystery.

Replete with period detail and the social mores evocative of a bygone era, this is a series of historical mysteries that is well worth reading. The main characters are engaging, and with each passing book, the reader becomes more fully immersed into their lives. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mystery is intriguing, it is simply the framework around which the characters evolve.

This series features Lady Kathryn and her husband, Charles Sheridan, who is also the fifth Baron of Somersworth. Summoned by King Edward to Glamis Castle in Scotland, they find themselves in the middle of a muddle. It seems that there is a royal mystery, as well as a murder, to be solved, the likes of which would destroy the monarchy were its details to become public. So, Charles is privately commissioned by the King to solve the mystery and the murder. With the aid of his spunky and intelligent wife, this indomitable duo investigates, and what they discover will keep the reader riveted to the pages of this book. Those who enjoy the historical cozy mystery genre will definitely love this series.

i gave this one star rating because there is no minus rating. I can honestly say that rarely have I been so disappointed in an author's work than I was with this.i have all the previous titles in the series but this book so annoyed me I doubt I will read any more. The book was uninteresting and the whole idea that Prince "Eddie" was misunderstood because of his deafness (ignoring the well-documented historical evidence as to his character)was so unbelievable. I did not care a jot about any of the characters. Also I found the continuous repeated incorrect use of the terms "England" and "English" instead of "Britain" and "British" irritating - particularly when the book was set in Scotland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Northern Murder For the Robin Paige Duo, 2 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Death at Glamis Castle (Victorian Mystery) (Mass Market Paperback)
What can I say, on the whole I liked the book but I felt that it ran out of a little steam towards the middle. It could after reading the rest of the set I have become a little jaded but I do feel it is a well written novel with on the whole good location and character development which holds the interest to the final page as always
