Dash's real mother died during child birth and Lady Aston has always been the mother he never had. After he and his friends find her dead in the nursery their whole lives change. They are forced to promise to never speak of it, and to never try to figure out who killed her. When a new clue arises he and his friends try desperately to find the killer. Elena Barnes has already had one season in London and that was more than enough for her. But when an opportunity arises to bring home a great collection of books she can hardly pass it up. Now she must try and sidestep her chaperone's many tries to bring her into society and her growing love for Dash.
I thought that this was going to be a love story with a plot in the background. It was quite the opposite, the murder plot is what drives the characters with a love story going on throughout the events. It was a good read and I did enjoy the suspense during the book. When I was reading this book I did not realize that it is the fourth in the series but I would highly recommend this book to any mystery lover. This book is an adult romance novel so there is some graphic description in some parts of the novel.
I received a complimentary digital copy of review from NetGalley.
