    An excellent cozy historical mystery that takes place during the Regency period. Really well fleshed out characters that aren't idealised versions of any kind. The mystery was incredibly well constructed too - just too many variables! Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1061...

    The story wasn't bad, but the writing was dreadful. I remember the first book in this series as being nothing special, but it certainly wasn't as poorly written as this one. Abandoned ship after 50 pages. An hour of my life completely wasted! ...

    Almost never do I like the second book of a series better than the first, but Death Comes to London is a rare exception. A more intriguing mystery (better plotted, too), more romance and a better-developed cast of characters made Lucy and Major Kurland's second adventure a really delig...

    4.5 stars, because I continue to enjoy the heck out of these, and the annoying father isn't in this one. Also, the mystery is less immediately predictable in this, SO. (Also, I read the first one yesterday, and already have the third out from the library.) I just, I really like them...

    It was a quick read, but not quite as good as the first. The mystery isn't as compelling as is the look at a Season in London, and I couldn't quite buy the really horrendous behavior of Miss Chingford (who was petty and shallow in the first book, but mindful of how she came across to o...
