Read full description of the books:
This was another excellent book in the John Pickett mysteries. This time finds lady Jane escaping London to spend time with acquaintances in the country to get her bearing two months after nearly being charged with the murder of her late husband. Thinking that a she would have a boring time in the country proved to be anything but when one of the dinner guests, Mr. Danvers, seemingly dies in a fire at the vicarage. Lady Jane suspects all is not as it seems in the vicars death.
She sends a missive to John Pickett of London's Bow Street police force to come down and make a discreet inquiry into the vicars death. John decides to enlist the help of Jane's London-based footman, Thomas, and comes to the Hollinsheath's estate in the role of lady Jane's footman. This way he can conduct his investigation by presenting himself as Jane's servant and work below stairs in the servant's quarters to scry information. In the meantime, he and lady Jane exchange their findings and work together to solve the mystery surrounding the vicar's death. As John eventually pulls the clues together, he brings the investigation to a bittersweet close to some and pleasant revelation to others.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing John's clever investigative skills and seeing him and Jane partner to bring light to a mystery. John Pickett is such a wonderful character, while not as enchanting as Cobb-South's other hero of common birth Ethan Brundy, yet he a man with upstanding moral values as well intelligence and intuition. Lady Jane Fieldhurst is also a delightful heroine who is interesting and insightful. Despite the glaring differences in the station in this era and that lady Jane is older than John by two years, there is a glowing ember between these two.
These characters are such a refreshing breath of air from the debauchery of rogues and rakes and haughty, brash trollops so prevalent in many of the so-called Regency/Historical offerings flooding this genre. I look forward to spending more time with John and Lady Jane as the Bow Street runner and the widowed viscountess paths cross to solve other murder mysteries.
