A lady never reveals the true extent of her decay...
Hannah Miles lives a quiet existence, helping her parents conduct research into a most terrible affliction - until a gruesome murder during her best friend's engagement party pulls her from the shadows. With her specialist's knowledge and demure disposition, Hannah is requested to aid the investigation.
Except Hannah discovers her role is to apologise in the wake of the rude and disgraced man tasked with finding the murderer. The obnoxious Viscount Wycliff thinks to employ Hannah purely as a front to satisfy Whitehall, but she'll have none of that.
The two must work together to find the murderer before the season is ruined. But the viscount is about to meet his greatest challenge, and it's not a member of the ton with a hankering for brains.
I couldn’t put it down.
I had no preconceived notions on what to expect from this book and was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. I found myself completely engrossed in the world Tilly Wallace has created. She has a wonderful way of describing their surroundings and you feel as if you are right in the story. Upon finishing this title I found myself buying the next two books in the series. I absolutely loved the narrators voice. This was a wonderful book to escape in to and I didn’t want it to end. Hannah (the main character) is so easy to like and I found myself rooting for her immediately. I love the family dynamic in the story and the relationship Hannah shares with both of her parents. I like the progressiveness of the characters while still staying true to the time period they live in. I am currently on book four and I couldn’t recommend more beginning to read/listen to this wonderful series.
