I enjoyed this first book in the Edwardian Mystery Series by Marion Chesney (AKA M.C Beaton).....Lady Rose Summer is not your everyday debutante...strong willed, outspoken, a supporter of women's rights, and with a nose for murder... she and her maid get into the thick of the investigation of the murder of a guest at Telby Castle, where she has been sent by her parents to find a suitable husband....I am looking forward to the next in the series....
