A Proposal to Die For (Lady Alkmene Callender Mysteries, #1)A Proposal to Die For by Vivian Conroy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In the first of a new series we are in London in 1924 when Lady Alkmene Callander teams up with Jake Dubois, a journalist, to investigate the appearance of the heir to a vast fortune - Evelyn Steinbeck - and the 'accidental' death of her uncle Silas Norwhich.
Though the mystery wasn't overly complicated it was satisfying and I will be interested to see how the main characters are developed. As at the moment Alkmene doesn't seem to have much depth of character, though as a 1920's member of the British peerage she probably never had the chance to grow.
A NetGalley Book.
