The number-one  New York Times -bestselling author returns with a brand-new Sherbrooke novel, featuring a cast of witty and outrageous characters and two wonderfully complex mysteries.

In April 1831, her grace Corinne Monroe wants her widowed son, Lord Julian, to marry her best friend's daughter, Miss Sophie Wilkie. Julian last saw Sophie when she was twelve years old, silent, skinny, and always staring at him. However, his mother is nothing if not persuasive, and Julian reluctantly accompanies her to London to meet the young lady.

And he knows that whatever happens isn't going to be good.

Lord Devlin Monroe, Julian's nephew, is very fond of his intriguing reputation in society: he delights, he frightens, he brings on delicious shudders. He's enjoying an extraordinarily pleasant bachelor life until Miss Roxanne Radcliffe and her niece, Miss Sophie Wilkie, appear in London society, and he finds himself wondering how he could have enjoyed midnight alone.

Julian and Devlin must discover what really happened three years earlier when Julian's first wife, Lily, was found dead. If they don't find out the truth, their lives could be ruined. And there is another, even more perfidious, danger that lurks in the shadows, waiting.

romantic thriller set in the 17th century, it was ok.

Not one of her best work.

I am a big fan of the Sherbrooke series....and this one was a big disappointment .

Not the best of the Sherbrooke series, but a good read nonetheless. Despite there being 2 couples falling in love--surprisingly very little romance. There was a lot of focus on the mystery and honestly I lost track of some of the characters and didn't really care when it came down to it.

More of a mystery than a romance. I might have liked it more if I'd wanted to read a mystery. It was a bit on the boring side.

The story line is slow and not very interesting. I tried to give it a chance but couldn't finish. I like many of Coulter's work but must say this one is a disappointment.

While the two romances are tepid, not sizzling, the conversations sparkle, the writing is gorgeous. This book is more a study on human interaction, lifelong friendships and love in all its forms, not just romantic love. I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
