I received this book for a fair and honest review. The opinions in this review are 100% my own.
This is the type of book that grabs your attention from the very first page. There is no lag in the story, there is always some kind of action going on.
The murder of Monty is a classic "who done it". Monty did not lack enemies that's for sure. His murder ends up with more questions than answers.
The women of the Smithwood house are complicated women. While they are trying to figure out who the murder is, they are pretty tight lipped about how they are feeling about things.
The women are different in personality but all come together to make sure Elizabeth is not falsely accused.
This book will keep you keep you on the edge of your seat to find out what happens next right to the very end.
Although this book is part of a series, this book can be read as a stand alone. This is the only book I read in the series so I can only assume they are all like that. I give this book a 5 out of 5.
