Three and a half stars. I like the series, and the lead character, Olivia “Livvy “ Denis. Since solving her husband’s murder in a previous book, Livvy has become enmeshed in crime solving, and, with the lead up to WW II, smuggling and espionage on behalf of her employer, the publisher of a newspaper, and of the British government. In this book, things are again personal for Livvy as she tries to prove that her father didn’t commit a murder, although he was found over the body. While I enjoyed th ...more

Kate began reading Agatha Christie mysteries and the Nancy Drew books while her classmates were reading Dick and Jane. She particularly likes historical mysteries and the feeling of time travel a good historical book can give the reader. Combined with her love of late Victorian to World War II architecture and fashions, she found an outlet for the stories and characters that fill her head by writi ...more
