The only thing I didn't like about this book is that it's the last one in the Lake & March series. Lavinia & Tobias are the most entertaining sleuth duo since Maddie Hayes and David Addison. The murder mystery is complicated and engrossing. The secondary couples, Anthony and Emeline, and Lady Dove and Lord Vale, serve to move the plot along in substantial ways but are also interesting couples in their own right. The addition of Dominic Hood seemed excessive at first but his conflict with ...more
Wasn't sure how I'd feel about following the same hero & heroine through three books, but this trilogy worked. I liked each book better than the last! :)

Book 1 - Slightly Shady
Book 2 - Don't Look Back
*be sure to read in order*
The third and last in the Lavinia Lake/Tobias March series, this one is perhaps my favorite of the three, although they are all terrific. The plot line has the novelty of the four private investigators (helped by their two higher-born friends) pursuing an early version of a "hit man". By now, the characters seem like old friends. Lord Vale and Joan Dove are back, Anthony and Emeline develop further as characters, and Priscilla gets a bigger part (very minor role in the first two). She is joined ...more

I've enjoyed all three of the Lavinia Lake, Tobias March books, but this is definitely my favorite. The suspense plot was good, with interesting twists. I knew something odd was going on, but couldn't figure out the timing. The ending was interesting and satisfying. While I could have done without the slightly paranormal parts of the books, overall I enjoyed the characters in all three, and in this one especially. I felt

Bon ben j'ai fini les 3... j'ai dévoré les 3 .... ok ça se lit vite, parce que c'est frais, c'est mignon sans être gnagnan....♥ Parce Lavinia et Tobias sont ♥♥♥ Et que les filles de ces livres ne se laissent pas marcher sur les pieds (même celles qui sont toutes mimi).

Que j'adore les échanges entre les héros et entre les autres aussi... c'était parfait pour mettre du soleil dans les lectures ♥
Sweet and in keeping with the rest of the series. I thought the Emiline/Anthony story would get wrapped up more neatly, but I was impressed with the misdirection away from the killer for most of the book. I knew it was her, but the book kept insisting it wasn't just long enough for me to doubt my read on the situation.

I bought this book at a resale shop, not realizing it was number 3 in the series. This historical fiction was a very smooth read and was not hindered at all by the fact that I had not read books 1 & 2, Slightyly Shady and Don't Look Back. I will definitely read them. This is the story of Tobias March and Laviavia set in Great Britain. They try to get away from London for a tryst at a castle. This is apparently very common and somewhat sanctioned and acceptable for the widowed. They unfortuna ...more
