  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 May #2
    The third entry in the Sparks & Bainbridge series (following A Royal Affair, 2020) brings the mystery closer to home. Upper-class Gwen and feisty Iris are making a go of their marriage bureau, the Right Sort, in postwar London. But Gwen is troubled because her father-in-law, Lord Bainbridge, is returning from Africa, and she knows he'll insist that her young son, Ronnie, be sent to a strict boarding school. Bainbridge quickly makes his overbearing presence felt, but Gwen and Iris learn that not all is as it seems with the man. Soon Gwen is caught up in a revenge plot that may endanger her life as well as that of her father-in-law. It's hard to imagine a wittier, more delightfully daring duo than Sparks and Bainbridge. Yet these women are not fluffy characters. Each struggles, Gwen with the ramifications of a mental breakdown, and Iris with events during her war service that continue to haunt her. Sharply plotted and filled with a robust cast of supporting characters, this is a mystery that both stands on its own and neatly links previous series entries. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

ALLISON MONTCLAIR grew up devouring hand-me-down Agatha Christie paperbacks and James Bond movies. As a result of this deplorable upbringing, Montclair became addicted to tales of crime, intrigue, and espionage. She now spends her spare time poking through the corners, nooks, and crannies of history, searching for the odd mysterious bits and transforming them into novels of her own. The Right Sort of Man is her debut novel.
