Lady Sophie Harding's husband died three months ago under suspicious conditions. Now new evidence suggests she may have been involved. A witness has come forward claiming to have hear two men talking about killing Viscount Harding the night he was murdered and of a woman who supposedly plotted it all. Now Lord Camden Grey will need to question Lady Sophie and after a little investigating there's no doubt in his mind she's hiding something. The question is what?
Lady Sophie was in an abusive marriage. She wasn't sad to see her husband gone, but she has suspicions of her own as to who did it. Her father and brother had left her home shortly before her husband's death armed with the information that he'd been abusing her. She fears they had something to do with his death and she's doing her best to hush everyone up who might know something. The question is how to convince Lord Camden of her innocence when her actions seem to suggest the opposite?
When someone makes an attempt on Lady Sophie's life, however, the question becomes who would want both Lady Sophie and her husband dead?
Overall, this book got 3 1/2 out of 5 roses. It had a nice blend of drama and romance. I could sympathize with Sophie and the plight of woman in her time who didn't really have a lot of options, if any, when they were in an abusive marriage. I enjoyed the mystery of who murdered the Viscount and attempted to do the same to Sophie. I liked watching the relationship between Sophie and Camden grow into something quite the opposite from that of her marriage. Additionally, I loved seeing Sophie gain self confidence and stand up for herself. I also enjoyed watching Sophie and Camden work together to solve the murder. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one got a STEAM rating - too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
