This book is an Edwardian mystery written by Marion Chesney, who also writes the Hamish MacBeth mysteries under the pseudonym M.C. Beaton. This is more of an historical romance/mystery.

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....

I found this too weak to finish. The writing was overly simplistic, and while the author obviously did historical research to construct her setting, she didn't blend it into her work well.

This was a mixture of a study of upper class life at the turn of the 20th century and a mystery. After I got into it I found it entertaining.
