Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A series of seemingly inexplicable deaths at Locke Abbey causes house guests to speculate that the sinister events have a supernatural cause, prompting William Cole to call on the services of renowned detectives to help solve the mysteries.

When Lady Thea Copley arrives with her detective father, Cole is immediately taken with her. He soon realises that she is not a typical lady, and that her beauty is only surpassed by the sharpness of her mind.

As they work together and expose the secrets and lies at the heart of his household, Cole is left reeling from the revelations. Can Thea overcome her past hurts to be his anchor, or will she hide behind her intellect, afraid to take a chance?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A refreshing regency romance/mystery 31 janvier 2017
Par Golden1 - Publié sur

I love this book. It is a refreshing change from the norm for a regency romance/mystery. The heroine is intelligent, honest and slightly uncomfortable around people she doesn't know. The hero is just perfect for her. If you enjoy reading romance &/or mysteries set in this era you should definitely give this one a try. I have already read this one 3 times, and it remains on my "read again" list.

I thoroughly loved reading this multi murder story. I enjoyed Thea's enthusiasm and intelligence. Cole seemed mesmerized by her knowledge and assertiveness. The story-line kept me reading all day long. I love historical romance novels and the fact that this was a mystery made it all that much more. I look forward to reading more of Catherine Winchester.

Lady Thea Copley is the now 24 year old daughter of Damaris and Nathanial Copley, whose story was told in "Her Saving Grace", a book I also loved. Thea and the hero of this story, William Cole, share many of the same attributes of Damaris and Nathanial in that first book. Like her mother, Thea is incredibly smart, has total recall of anything she's read and can read at lightening speed. Her knowledge and skills help her with working on cases with her detective father. Because society of that era does not appreciate or encourage those attributes in women, Thea has been emotionally hurt by men and society not able to accept a smart woman. Thea also is forthright and has difficulty understanding nuances in social situations and that has caused her to feel uncomfortable in gatherings with people she is unfamiliar with. William Cole is much like Thea's father in that he is a strong male character, but his male ego is not threatened by a female like Thea. He is intrigued with her and also patient and understanding of her fears and anxieties. There is also the aspect of a good murder/mystery to the story. Diehard fans of that particular genre might easily figure out who-done-it, but I felt like I was solving the case along with the detectives Thea and Nathanial. A very good (clean) romance with the murder/mystery. Catherine Winchester is now one of my favorite writers.

Putting aside the predictable plot and unlikable heroine who needed to be right all the time at any cost, this book was riddled with grammatical errors such as using "fair" instead of "fare" or "who's" instead of "whose." A handful of mistakes in a book are forgivable, but there were too many to be ignored.

Thea is a smart woman with an idenic memory- after reading Romeo and Juliet only once, she can quote verbatim any line from the play. It is her smarts that Cole is hoping will help solve the murders that have recently taken place in his home. Cole and Thea quickly fall in over, and Thea is ecstastic that there is a man who doesn't feel threatened by her intelligence.

Honestly, I thought that the relationship between Thea and Cole progressed way too rapidly. Within two days they were declaring their love for each other and getting engaged.

Some things in this novel didn't make sense. If Thea is as smart as she seems to be, then she would have realized Cole's father was being poisoned much sooner than she did. In a house where two murders have already been commited, wouldn't poison be the first thing you'd consider when someone starts developing unusual symptoms? And to me it seemed pretty obvious who committed the murders. Also, as the book went on, Thea got more and more annoying. She constantly felt the need to defend herself and her intelligence. For instance, she got into an argument with the governess and basically told the governess she was unfit to teach because she only knew how to speak three languages whereas Thea could speak eight. No wonder no one liked Thea. She was often rude and pointing out individuals lack of knowledge. She kind of reminded me of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. She was one of those people that are so intelligent that they lack rudimentary social skills. By the end of the book, I was fairly annoyed with her character. I know she meant well, but I expected that by the end of the story, she would have grown a bit and learned how to deal better with others, but she didn't. It was kind of disappointing.

Overall, just an OK love story and OK mystery.
