2 posts | 3 read | 16 to read
From the author of Suitors and Sabotage comes a suspenseful and enthralling new Regency novel, perfect for readers who like their Jane Austen classics with a side of mystery and murder. 1833. After young Lord James Ellerby witnesses a near-fatal carriage accident on the outskirts of his estate, he doesn't think twice about bringing the young woman injured in the wreck to his family's manor to recuperate. But then she finally regains consciousness only to find that she has no memory of who she is or where she belongs. Beth, as she takes to calling herself, is an enigma even to herself. She has the rough hands of a servant, but the bearing and apparent education of a lady. Her only clue to her identity is a gruesome recurring nightmare about a hummingbird dripping blood from its steel beak. With the help of James and his sister Caroline, Beth slowly begins to unravel the mystery behind her identity and the nefarious circumstances that brought her to their door. But the dangerous secrets they discover in doing so could have deadly ramifications reaching the highest tiers of London society. Fans of Cindy Anstey's previous novelsLove, Lies and Spies, Duels & Deception, Suitors and Sabotage and Carols and Chaoswill relish this dark and twisty new offering that blends romance, danger and mystery. Praise for Cindy Anstey: "A delightful salute to Jane Austen and will be a treat for her fans." VOYA, on Suitors and Sabotage "Delightful ... It is Jane Austen spiced with action, suspense, and humor." VOYA, starred review, on Duels & Deception "Jane Austen fans in need of a good new book, look no further."

Mehso-so

Mystery! Amnesia! Murder?? I was super enthralled by the first 2/3, but kind of bored by the end. I feel like not enough clues were dropped early in the book for the solution to truly pay off, and amateur detectives make me 🙄. That said, I would have liked it a lot more as a teen— the Regency setting gives just enough detail, and teens/young adults get to do most of the sleuthing convincingly.

Great cover, though. #ya
