Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed reading this Victorian romantic mystery. The settings are well drawn and the characters are likeable- at least most of them are, those being the ones you're meant to like! High handed and autocratic Adam Grey might be but he comes across as the man you really would want to sit beside at a formal dinner table. Even though attending to the rituals is a bit of a trial for him he does it with affable manners. However, that doesn’t mean he’s averse to breaking the occasional society rule or two as he gets to know the attractive, if a little naïve 18 year old Daisy Charleton. Most of the wealthy house guests have a 'trade' background rather than inherited title and I liked the lack of snobbery over this at a time when Victorian high society was still riddled with condescension.

The Victorian house parties aren’t tedious when both Adam and Daisy attend them. Solving the mystery of the stolen artworks is fairly simple if the reader picks up the well inserted clues. Recommended for those who enjoy Victorian Romance.

In the late 19th century, an ingenuous young woman Daisy meets up with single-minded mine owner, Adam. The last thing either of them want is a romantic interlude, Daisy because she has her heart set on going to art school, Adam, because he was so badly hurt in a youthful love affair that he is afraid to trust his heart again. Then, at a house party, they find themselves involved in the theft of valuable paintings, a mystery they are determined to resolve. Through a series of difficult and occasionally humourous adventures, the pair eventually solve the mystery and find their way through to a happy ending.

I thought this book painted what must be a fairly accurate picture of what life in the genteel atmosphere of house parties pre-WWI. I found the characters of Daisy and Adam to be excellently drawn and Daisy, in particular, came alive for me. I loved her spirit of independence!
