My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I always enjoy my time with Beryl and Edwina. I like the time period, the location, the mysteries, and, most importantly, the characters.
The thing about this series is that the characters always have growth and evolution, sometimes in spite of themselves.
This time around the ladies are called back to their finishing school near London to help their old headmistress solve a series of thefts and some mysterious happenings that are driving students away. In the middle of that investigation a school mate from the ladies’ time ends up dead.
One thing you can always count on is the great collection of characters, old and new, in the story. The regulars are welcome returns while the new folks add an interesting something different to the story.
I always recommend new folks to the series start at the beginning so they can keep up with the growth of our ladies, but each book does stand on its own.
Gather your favorite cup of whatever, curl up and enjoy the story!
