I liked this sequel even better than its original ( And Only to Deceive).

It's refreshing to read about a Victorian woman who pushes the boundaries of what's acceptable for a woman in her time, but never comes across as a 21st Century anachronism. Lady Emily Ashton is smart and inventive - but all in a completely believable way. And, Stephanie Plum, take note - it really is refreshing to read about an amateur sleuth who's not TSTL ("To Stupid to Live").

And, to top it all off, I think I'm developing a serious literary crush on Colin Hargreaves.

In any case, I'm eagerly looking forward to their adventures in the next book in the series.
