Opening line:

"Charles Lenox sat in the study of his town house in Hampden Lane--that small, shop-lined street just off Grosvenor Place where he had passed most of his adult life--and sifted through the papers that had accumulated upon his desk, as they would, inevitably, when one became a member of Parliament. "

I really quite enjoyed my first foray into the Charles Lenox Mysteries.
Charles was an interesting character and fun to read as he solved the mystery. He's likable and maybe too good. All of the characters had their own personality and part to play in the story. I hope many of them make their way back into the next books (I liked Lady Jane the best!).
I enjoyed the mystery though I admit I had no idea who would be the killer. I'm usually good at picking up clues in mysteries but I felt like I didn't read any;I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing.
Also, I skimmed a bit in the middle. I felt the story line got a bit old and weighed down.

Thanks to netgalley for the early read!
