England, 1899, Frances Wynn is coming out of a year of mourning following the death of her husband. Having been living with her brother in law and his family, she decided it's time to regain independance for her and her daughter, and leases a house in Belgravia, London.

Newspaper columnist Lady Katherine Bascomb has ruined Detective Inspector Andrew Eversham's career after publishing a witness interview he missed. Can they work together to catch The Commandment Killer who has been terrorizing London? And what about the sparks between them?

Manda Collins perfectly blends romance and mystery together in these books. I love how she uses the romance series device of rotating couples in a mystery series. They're the perfect blend of Deanna Raybourn and Anne Perry with a little bit of Bridgerton thrown in.. - John
