4.0 out of 5 stars Rose and the green eyed monster, 6 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Our Lady of Pain (Edwardian Murder Mystery Series) (Kindle Edition)
Lady Rose Summer is getting annoyed because her fiancé Harry Cathcart who is working as a private detective appears to be taking a more than professional interest in the glamorous Dolores. Then Dolores is murdered and Rose is found standing over the body. This compromising situation leads to a fast paced plot which involves more murders, more dangers for Rose and her companion, Daisy, and a trip to France.

I enjoyed the way the characters interact and how the relationship between Harry and Rose has grown and developed over the four books. Rose is confined by her role in society and her life is reduced to changing her clothes six times a day and eating large meals she doesn't really want. It seems to her that Harry is much freer to do what her wants as is Daisy. Her frustration leads her into many dangers and awkward social situations.

The book is well written and the historical background is interesting without overwhelming the story. This is a good light read if you like your crime stories without too much violence and with an unusual background. The four books can be read in any order as they will stand alone though a reader starting with this book might be a little confused over the on-off engagement between Rose and Harry.
