R- 1.5? It's Victorian, after all.
Book 6 in the Lady Emily mysteries
Oh how I love these books.
This latest installation is fabulous-- laugh-out-loud funny and utterly quotable.
"Have you ever met Lady Glover?" I asked Ivy, keeping my voice low. "She drives her phaeton through Hyde Park with zebras pulling it."
"Yes, I've seen them," Ivy said. "She makes it rather hard to miss."
"Zebras, Ivy. Zebras," I said. "Why are we not better acquainted with this woman?"
All in all, wholeheartedly recommended. But read the first 5 first, probably.
