If you like Victorian England and have an own imagination you will like book. The fast pace of the book and the many locales visited make for a fun read. Who done it?

I enjoyed this book as it was more authentically Victorian than many such novels. The story gave a sense of not only the incredible changes going on at the time but the era's political and moral values. Very interesting mystery built around characters that had strengths and weaknesses instead of Victorian stereotypes. A truly good read.

As I grew up in Scotland, not far from Edinburgh this story brought back many memories.
Aside from that I really enjoyed the story line and the somewhat "quaint" language used from time to time.
Another great Donna Fletcher Crow story!

I have read 2 of the Lord Danvers Mysteries. I liked both. This time his honeymoon in Scotland is interrupted. The author describes the country and and people well. I plan to read other Lord Danvers mysteries.

I enjoy this series of books. They are "easy reads," but also entertaining mysteries. I thought the ending of this one was a little muddled, but it was still good, and I do like these characters. If you want a period mystery about believable characters, but don't have the time to wade through hundreds of pages, you might want to give these books a try.

I almost never skip sections and skim read a novel, but this book was so confusing, simplistic and unrealistic that I couldn't being myself to read every word. I did persevere to the end just to see how the author would conclude all of the story lines, but finished still confused. I did learn some interesting historical facts along the way, but they came up in the story so often and were so varied that it was hard to keep them straight.

Excellent and complex mystery. Several different sub-plots which keep the reader guessing, plus adding historical information of Scotland and grave digging (aka resurrectionists) and the relation to scientific/medical education.

You don't need to read the books in order to enjoy them, though there are a few non-spoiling references to the first story in this one. If you're reading the books in order, one thing that is noticeable is part one was told entirely from Lord Danvers' point of view, while this story is completely done from Lady Antonia's. This does have a slight effect to the style and voice of the story. But I'm a fan of Donna Fletcher Crowe's mystery series, and that did not effect my enjoyment as much (though, being male, I identify more with Lord Danvers than Lady Antonia). Both characters and several of the secondary characters are well developed (especially regular characters of the Dowager Duchess and Danvers' valet Hardy).

As mentioned, there are several different subplots going on. I was surprised when I discovered who the killer was. I'll admit - with Crow's mysteries, while I don't have the plot figured out, I usually have an accurate hunch when introduced to the villain, and this was an exception.

There is a faith element in this book (as there is in Crowe's stories), but it doesn't at all come across as preachy.

If you enjoy British history (in this case, Scotland is where most of the action occurs), or if you enjoy cozy mysteries, or even if you're more of a historical romance person than I am, I suspect you will thoroughly enjoy this story and this series.
Lord Danvers and the beautifully resourceful Tonia are off to Scotland on honeymoon, but the story starts with a dead body in a most unexpected place just a few days before. Beautifully evocative and well-researched descriptions bring the Crystal Palace World Fair to life just as vividly as Scottish lochs and the streets of Edinburgh. Meanwhile tales of the infamous Burke and Hare derail conversation and distract Tonia's thoughts from beauty to horror, but what worries her more is her new husband's sudden silence, so soon after the wedding.

Threads of mysteries weave together--the beautiful tartan, the mysterious parcel, the dead body (of course), medical school shenanigans, half-recognized strangers, and Lord Danvers' quiet dismay. But they all come together in the end. Sins of the fathers might threaten the sons, or honesty of sons just might save the fathers. But Lord Danvers and his beautiful young wife seem set to stay together, pray together and get out of plenty more scrapes together by the story's end. These mysteries are a fun series, nicely based on tales of genuine crimes and real history, well-balanced between the murk of squalor and the honesty of wonder of luxury, and pleasingly true to a low-key thoughtful sense of faith.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a second-hand copy and bought it quick, since I already know I enjoy this author and this series.
