An enjoyable romp ......,
This review is from: The Sailor's Ransom: A Bella Wallis Mystery (Bella Wallis Mysteries) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the first Della Wallis book that I have read and it was an enjoyable read.
Mrs. Wallis is a secret novelist writing books that shock and titillate society. The books are based around people and events that she has been involved in.
The book starts by introducing us to her as a widow who is beautiful and slightly mysterious.
She has a lover who may or may not be a spy and she lives a secretly bohemian lifestyle.
The story tells us about her being pulled into a worrying event when her lovers friend falls in love with a girl.The girl is being forced into a loveless and dangerous marriage.
The story is about the violent world of London in the Victorian era.It is filled with blackmail,danger and class. Mrs.Wallis is living a life where intrigue and murder are around her everyday existence.
Overall, an enjoyable romp. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more in this series.
