Review by

Simon Frederick Cynster is determined to find a wife and everyone knows this so he's hunted by marriage eligible women, mostly young girls, but he wants something more. When he goes to Glossup Hall to visit a friend who is having a house party he's hoping he finds something more, he doesn't expect Portia Ashford who is someone he's known since he was young, a person he didn't consider, she always seemed distant and aloof, but now she's attractive and interesting and he's finding himself wanting more from her.The romance progresses but then a murder happens and things get interesting when it looks like Portia is the next victim.It's not a bad read, nothing stand-out but fun.
