Lady Rose Summer refuses to abide by her parents' insistence that she marry. Even more distressing, she wants to work. On advice from Captain Harry Cathcart - a noble-born private investigator who knows Rose all too well - her parents agree to let Rose work as a typist and live in a women's hostel.

But life as a working woman isn't quite what Rose imagined: When a playboy is murdered, Rose returns to high society to follow a trail of deception, rumors, and devious plots - even as a singularly calculating killer prepares to end rebellious Rose's sleuthing for good!

Listener Opinions

    " A nice fluffy read. A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 2/6/2014

    " The second book in the Edwardian Murder Mystery series was as entertaining as the first. Lady Rose Summer returns and tries to become a career woman along with her friend and former chorus girl, Daisy. Something of a reluctant iconoclast, Rose slides between the working class and her nobility. Captain Harry Cathcart returns and the two work together to yet again solve murders among the upper class. This continues to be one of my favorite series by Marion Chesney. "

    " Another good detective romp featuring Lady Rose & Harry Cathcart. All a bit silly but great fun & a nice light read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 1/26/2014

    " Lightweight period mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/26/2014

    " it was rather boring really "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina (Boupie) | 1/17/2014

    " I did not like this one as much as the first two. I think I will finish the rest of this series next month as I have lost interest in it a little bit. Still a very quick read and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/12/2014

    " Another Rose and Harry mystery in which they continue to snipe at each other but end up engaged. Rose seems to be the better detective despite the fact Harry owns the agency. Daisy Levine is living up to the promise of the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 12/10/2013

    " A good mystery - lots of back & forth as to "who dunnit" - but also the new dynamic of Daisy moving back & forth in her class status - keeps it much more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Ferrari | 12/6/2013

    " Second in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Smatzny | 9/22/2013

    " This is the second book in the Edwardian Murder Mystery series. The main character,Lady Rose Summer discovers she doesn't really want to be a free woman. In the this book, Rose gets into all sorts of trouble only to be rescued by Captain Harry Cathcart each time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bev | 6/1/2013

    " The second in another wonderful series by Marion Chesney (who writes as M. C. Beaton too). These Edwardian-era characters (Lady Rose and Harry Cathcart) work with and against each other to solve crimes, among an outrageous collection of characters from all strata of society. Great fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/12/2013

    " fun - Rose is getting a little irritating but still a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/21/2013

    " This is the first of a series of books about Lady Rose Summers set in about 1890 or so. Lady Rose is a fiesty upper class deb and she gets into lots of interesting scrapes. Each book is good light reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 3/9/2012

    " This is the second in a funny, silly series of Edwardian mysteries. It's almost like Perils of Pauline - Lady Rose is first kidnapped, then sent to an insane asylum, and this is before the first murder. It all works out, of course, even though Rose is almost killed herself twice before the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karri | 12/18/2011

    " I usually enjoy plot-driven books, but this one was so concise that by the end I felt as if I was reading a series of bullet points, rather than a book. Poor editing also contributed to my disappointment with this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/27/2011

    " Loved it. It's a nice story and good to learn about the Edwardian times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felicia | 8/31/2011

    " Again, enjoyable, although Rose's behavior is getting a little irritating. Some fun stuff, not a crazy complex mystery but good light fun. Very sparse writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannette | 5/3/2011

    " I am really enjoying the character development in this series. "

    " A nice fluffy read. A fun read. "

    " London upper curst girl wants to be a detective. pretty good- I would read another in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikala | 3/8/2009

    " I loved this book, was hilarious however the lead characters were typical of this kind of novel. The plot was good and thankfully non predictable. I was disappointed with the ending....didnt really have one, it just finished, could have been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AzuresHeart | 10/26/2008

    " Nice quick read again... but I felt that there was one too many plots going on in that one.... You felt like you were running all around on this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina (Boupie) | 9/18/2008

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 8/25/2008

    " This is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. This series is by the same author as the Hamish MacBeth and Agatha Raisin books, she just changed her name a bit (instead of MC Beaton). It's a good light read for lovers of historical mystery, set in the early part of the 20th century in England. "
