Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Emily and husband Colin have come to the French Riviera for what should be a joyous occasion - the engagement party of her lifelong friend Jeremy, Duke of Bainbridge, and Amity Wells, an American heiress. But the merrymaking is cut short with the shocking death of one of the party in an apparent suicide. Not convinced by the coroner's verdict, Emily must employ all of her investigative skills to discover the truth and avert another tragedy"--

    Amity Wells, American heiress, is engaged to Jeremy, Duke of Bainbridge, and her mama is throwing a huge party for their friends and family. Lady Emily is counted one of Jeremy's best friends and so the Hargreaves are invited. Unfortunately, as often happens around Lady Emily, a death occurs: the lifeless form of Chauncey Neville is found lying prostrate in Jeremy's room. Was it suicide or murder? Did the wrong man die? Who would want to kill the bridegroom's best friend? What this cozy mystery lacks in plotting and suspense (mystery fans will easily spot the killer) is more than offset by the gently amusing comedy of errors, the witty banter of privileged Victorians on holiday, and Lady Emily's growing resemblance to Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody. We even brush shoulders with the Queen! This tenth delightful entertainment featuring the Hargreaves detective duo is very acceptable indeed. For fans of Amelia Peabody, of course, but also readers who can't resist Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey novels, starring the British aristocrat and her delectable husband, the brooding detective Nicholas Brisbane.
