This mystery was fun, overall, even if there were moments that made me roll my eyes. I'm usually more annoyed by books that feature heroines that are not products of their time, but I was mostly able to suspend my disbelief and just enjoy the mystery. Although I found the murderer predictable, the reasons behind it unfolded at a nice pace. The romantic hero is pretty over the top, but the development of the relationship between him and Lady Julia was satisfying, without giving too much at once. I liked Lady Julia a lot - this first book sets up a good basis for her development, and does it in a really credible way, and I'm looking forward to more books in the series.
