Florence married Percy Bennet because he wanted an heir and she wanted security. Everything works reasonably well until their son, Philip, is a few months old and everything starts to fall apart. What happens next is known to the reader but remains hidden from everyone else for twenty years.

This is a well written mystery where the suspense and tension is very well maintained in spite of the fact that what happened is known to the reader from the start. The seeds of the final tragedy are already

An older book that was still a fun read. It starts off with the death of a baby and a quick substitution, as the child was heir to a nice estate. Then the story jumps ahead to the murder of the 'adoptive' mother. Some good twists, but I had read this before and it wasn't quite as good the second time around.

This is the first entry in a new series with a refreshing premise. Characters are likable and believable. This is a pleasant, enjoyable read. Looking forward to more titles in the series.
