Formulaic but still quite diverting, although not up to the standard of Agatha Raison or Hamish MacBeth. Will probably read others in the series.

Review by Ameise1
This was a light enjoyable reading. It's a cosy mystery set in the Edwardian period. A young lady who has her season and should be getting married, failed to do so because she wouldn't accept the female aristocratic rules of that time. A good deal more she got herself involved to solve a mystery and therefore put herself into danger. A former Captain who was injured and not a beauty himself neither in looks nor character was trying to solve the puzzle too. Their servants were thinking that both of them would made a good match and were trying to keep their masters close to each other.
