Lady Rose Summer, the wayward Edwardian debutante who keeps getting mixed up in disreputable adventures, would swear she is not a jealous woman. After all, she knows her engagement to private detective Captain Harry Cathcart is only a ploy to keep her parents from shipping her off to India. But then Harry's latest client, Dolores Duval--a vision of curves with a seductive French accent--starts appearing everywhere at his side. In a fit of rage, Rose threatens Dolores, only to be found the very next day, standing over her dead body. The newspapers rush to convict her, but can Harry and Detective Superintendent Kerridge clear her name? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/17/2014

    " Cute finish to a fun, breezy quick series (4 books), with just enough of an opening left for a possible additional book. This wasn't as good as the others and it seemed to take forever for the resolution, but it was still fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Toronto1 | 2/13/2014

    " **** "Our Lady of Pain" (E4) is Dolores, in a Swinburne poem, here a French courtesan who hires Captain Harry to track threatening letters. Marion Chesney's Lady Rose threatens her rival in a fit of jealousy, witnessed by Edwardian London society, [then picks up the gun by her dead body. The girls are imprisoned in a convent, escape to Paris, where the personal servants are swayed by premature romance into an unhappy marriage back home. Poor old rejects saved in book #3 marry too, when their masters do not, kind of spoofing happy wedding endings.] A trail of bodies and emotional seesaws accumulate even after the perpetrator is caught. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merry | 2/5/2014

    " I love absolutely anything by Marion Chesney/MC Beaton. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toni | 2/1/2014

    " Rather a ridiculous, unbelievable story. I would never have finished it if I weren't listening to it on CD. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 1/28/2014

    " I saw this book on a library display stand and picked it up as I have enjoyed M.C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series. However I didn't really enjoy it - the writing was quite stilted in parts and even though it's fiction, there are too many improbabilities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Irwin | 1/20/2014

    " Got to love Rose & harry (and Daisy). usual good jape, quirky characters, and as the last of four books featuring Lady Rose & Harry Cathcart - a happy ending!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/18/2014

    " Fourth in the series. Lady Rose's companion Daisy marries her man and then has second thoughts. Rose and Daisy travel to France to help Captain Harry find the murderer of a famous tart. L "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Lovell | 1/12/2014

    " I love these - a quick fix (you can read one in 2 hours) - they help keep the averages up - and there is always some information in there too so you feel like you've learned something - ok so the plot is a bit thin and the characters a bit one dimensional - but who cares every once in a while! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tam Donica | 1/1/2014

    " Good and quick read. Recommend readers to read in correct succession, in order to see Daisy and all of the other characters develop. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/19/2013

    " It was OK. I am just not as enamoured of Lady Rose and her Cockney sidekick (their contrariness gets too predictable) as I was of the servant crew in the Regency series. Nor as smitten with Harry as some seem to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AzuresHeart | 11/28/2013

    " I am going to wait on this one... so I did read some of it... I just didn't get into it as much as I thought I would. But that doesn't mean it wasn't great. I will just grab it from the library again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 11/15/2013

    " This seemed to take a long time to get moving. I like the era so that was kind of fun. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Britta | 11/14/2013

    " Ugh. Even Davina Porter, a fantastic audio book talent, isn't saving this one for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlynn | 11/4/2013

    " I really like this series by Marion Chesney. I love reading about this time period and the author integrates little historical facts into the story which is fun to learn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/30/2013

    " Wow. I felt transported to victorian england. The heroine feels so real & just as stubborn as I. Loved it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette Meier | 10/29/2013

    " What a twisting, turning roller-coaster ride to the end of the series. At times delightful and clever, at times frustrating. Glad it ended as it did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 10/22/2013

    " Pretty good read. I think I would enjoy reading the previous books with these characters to see how they met and reached this point in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicki M | 10/14/2013

    " I did enjoy this last mystery and its sad to finish them. It a good story with lots of twists and turns sorting everything in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette Johnson | 9/4/2013

    " I must admit to getting a little character weary in this final installment and that prevents me from giving it more stars in my rating. Daisy seemed caught in left field while Harry and Rose ran opposing laps. I was satisfied by the ending, and that is - after all - what counts! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Collibee | 11/21/2012

    " Quick read, enjoyable mystery. Love Captain Cathcart, I'm pleased with how the series ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 11/13/2012

    " The series showed a little wear in this one, and I'm not surprised that Chesney ended it. It was okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex Pearson | 10/5/2012

    " I lvoe her books, they are a always a fun read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 7/24/2012

    " This was one book too many. Okay, but not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Boyette | 2/29/2012

    " This was a cute mystery. Not very intellectual, but a light, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zimmer | 6/18/2011

    " lightweight, quick romp, Edwardian society "

    " These books are not very good, but a quick mystery read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 4/18/2011

    " This is the fourth book in this mystery series. It was a good story. I hope she keeps writing this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lady Knight | 3/23/2011

    " I loved this final volume! It had been a while since I read the previous three, but I didn't find it hard to get back into the swing of things. While admittedly, there isn't much in the way of a true-blue mystery plot... the focus is definitely on the characters' relationships. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 2/14/2011

    " Pretty good read. I think I would enjoy reading the previous books with these characters to see how they met and reached this point in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/22/2011

    " This is the last in a series of four Edwardian mysteries. The required happy ending for Rose and Harry, and Daisy and Becket, was a bit abrupt, but getting there was a fun time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 1/12/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa C | 7/20/2010

    " A little slower than the previous three in the series, but it wraps up the characters nicely. As with many of her books, scenes are often a bit choppy, apparently to move the story quickly, but it occasionally jarring to suddenly jump to several months later just as the action was picking up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 6/4/2010
