Описание

Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sister's estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when one of the house guests is murdered, her brother-in-law asks her to aid the insufferable Sebastian Gage-a fellow guest with some experience as an inquiry agent. While Gage is clearly more competent than she first assumed, Kiera isn't about to let her guard down, as accusations and rumors swirl.




When Kiera and Gage's search leads them to even more gruesome discoveries, a series of disturbing notes urges Lady Darby to give up the inquiry. But Kiera is determined to protect her family and prove her innocence, even as she risks becoming the next victim.

    As usual I received this book from GoodReads as part of a giveaway. Also as usual, despite the very kind and generous consideration of getting a free book, I give my candid opinions below.The year is 1830 and there is murder most foul afoot at an isolated Scottish estate. A young woman has been brutally murdered and her fetus stolen from her very abdomen as she lies bleeding. The suspects are detained and it's up to a dashing but inexperienced son of an Edinborough investigator and the widow with a speckled past to find the criminal before they strike again.Our author's debut novel offers us many of the enticements that one seeks in a mystery novel. Her characters are unique and her plot lines are complex without becoming hopelessly tangled and beyond unraveling. The reader is quickly sympathetic with this willowy widow as she tries to work her way out of a shadowy past not of her own making. For the romantically inclined, she weaves enough of a love interest through her narrative to be interesting without being distracting.For historical perspective, she gives us several curiosities along the way but falls short of making these the focus. Her prose is readable and at times not entirely appropriate for the period but one finds it easy enough not to mind very much.In summary, The Anatomist's wife is an amusing long day of reading. It lacks some of the depth and detail of other period novels but has at its heart a tale of resolve and redemption. I look forward to the further adventures of Lady Darby.
