This is a Richard and Rose mystery romance. I so enjoy the characters in these books.

This starts with Richard and Rose returning to London six months into their marriage. Rose is pregnant and they are very much in love.

Old enemies return and tension builds as Richard and Rose play cat and mouse with them to try to find out what they are plotting.

When a dead body is found in the house and the unfortunate victim has links to Richard's past . He feels compelled to investigate.

Thompson's agency features here and Rose gets to meet Mrs Thompson.

This is a book that is hard to put down so be prepared to put time aside for a riveting read! The excitement is breathtaking.

Often I have read about young ladies being presented at court, but this is the first time I have felt I was a spectator to the event. Ms Connolly describes the event with precision and humour that makes the reader feel they are actually there. I really enjoyed finding out so much about this splendid occasion including the court dress.

The plot is excellent and the romance wonderful. The love between Richard and Rose is awesome and though old enemies try to come between them. The trust that they have for each other is a delight to read.

If you have not met Richard and Rose before then you are missing a truly wonderful series and reading this will make you want all the others!

I loved this story and can highly recommend it as a must read! A perfect way to chase away the winter blues.
