My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After the death of her husband Frances Wynn, the American-born Countess of Harleighmoves away to town aiming for some independence. With her young daughter, Rose, Frances rents a home in Belgravia and welcomes her sister, Lily, from New York, ready for her first London season.
But her problems start when the police receive an anonymous letter stating that she had killed her husband Reggie. Inspector Delaney starts his investigation.
A really enjoyable well-written mystery, and start to what I hope is a new series. I like that the characters are already so well developed.

They Gathered at RosingsThey Gathered at Rosings by Margaret Lynette Sharp
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Lady Catherine de Bourgh and her husband hold a ball at Rosings for her grandson. A short story which felt like part of a novel. It need to be longer so that the characters can be introduced and established before the ball occurs as determining who the characters were was confusing.
