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!

    " 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. "

    " 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! "

    " 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. "
