Captain Harry Cathcart and Lady Rose Summer have entered into an engagement of convenience so Rose can avoid being sent to India with all the other failed debutantes. Rose's sharp intellect and radical ideas have served to repel her would-be suitors. Rose's parents are hardly thrilled that their only child is marrying a man in trade, but Harry comes from a good family and, at the very least, they hope he will keep their troublesome daughter out of mischief.

Unfortunately, even a pretend engagement cannot save Rose from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas, and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season.

Rose is delighted to have a protege, but their friendship is cut tragically short when Dolly is found floating in a river. Harry must solve the mystery of Dolly's death, and keep Rose from being the murderer's next victim. Download and start listening now!

    " Rose and Harry. Agatha and James. Hamish and Priscilla. All interchangeable but this time set in Edwardian times & I love it!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 2/7/2014

    " This might just be my favorite M.C. Beaton book. It is set in the Edwardian Era. I will definitely read the rest of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yorky Caz | 2/7/2014

    " I love this series and have a very clear idea of how I want it all to end! There is a little habit of having everything tie up a bit too well at the end of these kind of series but I am so invested in the characters now i just want good things for them all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/5/2014

    " This is another delightful romp with Harry and Rose falling in and out of love with one another at regular intervals. Rose seems to be a better detective than Harry, but of course his presence is required to get her out of trouble. There are some lovely explanations of phrases and historical customs, though some of them felt a bit 'planted' rather than being part of the narrative flow. A good light read. "

    " Lady Rose Summer is making the round of debbutante balls without her fiancee where she befriends a coutry girl who is latter murdered. She sets out to solve the case and to firm up things with her fiancee. It begins to look like her parents will ship het to India to find a husband. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Smatzny | 12/25/2013

    " This is the third book in the Edwardian Murder Mystery series. The main character, Lady Rose Summer, gets into trouble again. Captain Harry Cathcart again comes to the rescue but they still can't seem to understand each other. Has a few moments of humor involving Harry's secretary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 12/22/2013

    " I had to remind myself that I was reading Chesney several times in this book to assure myself that the writing was on purpose. It was pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ibis3 | 12/15/2013

    " Light cozy mystery set in the Edwardian era. The mystery itself wasn't spectacular and the relationship between the protagonists was all right, but it's about time that they put misunderstandings behind them and move forward in their relationship. (I understand book four is much the same.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandie Thompson | 11/24/2013

    " I finished this book almost a year ago, so I don't really remember much about it. I know I enjoyed it; it's a murder mystery with a romantic twist, set in Edwardian England. This book will not make you any smarter or more well rounded, but it's a fun, pleasant read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dean Brodhag | 11/13/2013

    " First book I've red by this author. Interesting historical facts interjected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 10/23/2013

    " If you like the MC Beaton books, this is the same author under a different pen name. The main character is a debutant...they are set in Edwardian England and she is bored. They remind me a little of the Anne Perry books only MUCH lighter and easier to read. I read one a day for 4 days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 9/23/2013

    " A lovely little Edwardian mystery with a touch of romance. I listened to this one rather than reading it, and the English accent of the narrator helped me really feel the ambiance of the time period. I kept getting really frustrated with the relationship of the two main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah Carabajal | 7/30/2013

    " Loved it! Just as clever as the first one! Poor Lady Rose & Captain Cathcart! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 5/30/2013

    " It was good though it seem to go around a bit with silly side stuff which I think was pointless. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane | 2/24/2013

    " This sucked and the ending annoyed the HECK out of me!!. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 8/18/2012

    " Once I start a series I usually have to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 6/7/2012

    " The third in a series of the adventures of Lady Rose and Captain Harry Cathcart, her fiance (of convenience only). More dead bodies, more misunderstandings between Rose and Harry. A fun read. "

    " Would have been better as a short story. "

    " I thought this was a silly story, and it didn't capture my attention at all. Too bad, because I usually enjoy Marion Chesney. "

    " I've liked this character in the past but the love interest part of the stories is starting to get on my nerves a little bit. Move forward already! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 8/1/2010

    " quick fun read. Rose can be a little annoying. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 9/8/2009

    " Pedestrian Edwardian mystery with awkward prose and pacing. Was curious about author (who is also published as MC Beaton.) Will not explore her massive ouevre further!
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 8/27/2009

    " The third installment of Lady Rose and Captain Harry Cathcart. Murder, slight romance and a look at Edwardian England. Not the best mysteries but an ok look at a woman's roll in turn of the century England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 4/2/2009

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AzuresHeart | 10/28/2008

    " I like how Rose Summer keeps dipping her foot into the local life below her station. Realizing every time that she likes the comforts of her class and appreciates them. I like that Chesney gives you those contrasts... you get to really feel what it was like to live in Edwardian England.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judie | 10/8/2008

    " My first experience with Chesney. She leaves you hanging at the end, in anticipation of another sequel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 9/2/2008

    " A breathtakingly stupid novel. I actively disliked the hero and heroine. "
