A good start with much of the book taken up with providing background to Rose's life, her experiences, her family etc.
There's the advantage of setting the book in Edinburgh, a place I want to visit, it's where my parents met. Love history and it's got lots of that.
Going to have to arrange a trip there.

Sweet, not too violent, main character is somewhat anachronistic, but it was an enjoyable bedtime read.

I loved this book . One of those English mysteries I just couldn't put down. Apparently from what I can tell not published in the states so it has been hard to find others by this writer. I've found several at used bookstores though.
Loved the Inspector Faro series. This one about his daughter and her detecting abilities is excellent as well. Alanna knight is a wonderful author. I have yet to find anything she has written that I have not thoroughly enjoyed.
I read all of this series. Easy to follow. Like able characters. Good setting.
Not very good, managed to finish tough.
