While there are plenty of similarities between this series and the Lady Julia books, I give Alexander credit for creating a more historically likely heroine. In the first book, she had a reasonably gradual transformation into a more iconoclastic character, and by this second book she'd grown on me. I appreciate that Emily wants to flaunt certain of society's rules, but in the end is still a product of the Victorian era. Recommended for historical mystery fans.
