I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Verity Bright is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing partnership that has spanned a quarter of a century. Starting out writing high-end travel articles and books, they published everything from self-improvement to humour, before embarking on their first historical mystery. They are the authors of the fabulous Lady Swift Mystery series, set in the 1920s.
“Love is blind always and cannot see.”
Lady Eleanor prepares to be a bridesmaid for her best friend when her fiancé is accused of breaking a marriage contract. Just when everyone is trying to understand that, the supposed former fiancée is murdered, leaving Lady Eleanor to solve several mysteries before her dear friend completely crumbles.
This was my first book in this series, so while there was a well-done introduction to the character, there were several references that I didn’t understand.
I enjoyed the characters and found the leading lady quite entertaining. I loved that Eleanor was not a born and bred lady of the manor. She is every bit the fearless leader a suitable story needs.
I found the plot well done. The descriptions were lovely, and the dialogue entertaining. This would be an enjoyable series.
