message 1: by Kim (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kim Power I found this disappointing. The detective genre totally overpowered the Regency context and I found the characters rather wooden.

Claire Even if the procedure was correct it didn't FEEL Regency - too much concern about not moving the body etc. And I didn't like who did it either.
