Okay, so I tagged this as Victorian, and it's totally not. And I know that. It's 1780-- that's definitively pre-Victorian.
BUT, in my brain, this book goes right next to the Robin Paige mysteries, the Lady Emily mysteries, and the Lady Julia mysteries. All of which are Victorian. So there you go.
I love mysteries like this. The main characters are interesting and engaging. The mystery was intriguing.
Overall, good stuff. Possibly my favorite of this batch of Reader's Choice books... maybe. Haven't read them all yet, though. ;)
It's also sufficiently macabre to be posted on Friday the 13th! :D
