Lady Darby tries to clear the name of a dear friend while unraveling a mystery about a missing girl and secrets about her friend’s mysterious disappearance ten years before. There is plenty of intrigue, just enough romance, and a bit of history.
I cannot say enough about Anna Lee Huber’s Lady Darby novels. I love them. I do have one criticism that in my first reading I didn’t really notice because I was so entranced; however, one thing that I noticed this time around was that Huber tends to be a little bit redundant with Lady Darby’s past. Not just from book to book but almost chapter to chapter. I understand the need to reiterate some of it but perhaps not as often. Although, there is possibly some reason that Huber feels that it needs to be stated again.
