The Reluctant Heiress by Annabel Laine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Caroline Malcolm, with her brother and mother have returned from India after living there for twenty years. Then her mother's death she decides that it is time she learnt who her father really is. Taking advise she relates to the Earl of Moriston, an occasional detective, all she knows.
We have a plot which includes diamonds, 'accidents', and secrets that have been kept for years as the Earl and his family try to unravel the clues.
I enjoyed this Regency tale as it had more mystery than romance and the style of writing was easy to read. I liked the portrayal of the characters, and the mystery was sufficiently entertaining.
