First in a series of entertaining 1800’s mysteries involving spinster Dido Kent.  Miss Kent goes to visit her recently engaged niece when the body of a young woman is found in the garden.  Observant and clever, Miss Kent cannot help but investigate – not only this crime, but sets out to discover all the secrets that the house and the family of her niece’s fiance are hiding.  

I read this book in less than three hours on a lazy Sunday.  Good thing I also picked up the two following books in the series at the same time…
