"If Jane Austen had written Miss Marple, she would have been Dido Kent, the inquisitive spinster ."-- Kirkus (starred review)

A Woman of Consequence , the third installment in Anna Dean's charming mystery series, opens with a visit to the ruins of an Abbey where Penelope Lambe, suffers a bad fall from the ancient stone steps. Before she slips into unconsciousness, Penelope manages to say, 'I saw her--It was her.' Soon people are certain that she saw the Grey Nun, a ghost reputed to walk the abbey's ruins. Miss Dido Kent, however, does not approve of ghosts. Disregarding everyone else's assumptions, and endeavoring to take her mind off the troubles of her family, Dido turns her energy toward solving the mystery. But events start to seem more sinister when a human skeleton is found at the abbey. Is Miss Lambe's accident connected to this discovery? Everyone is relying on Dido to find out. A captivating continuation of the Dido Kent series: rich in suspense, historical detail, and most of all, characters.

The third book in the Dido Kent series

Aug 11, 2015

Another episode in a great series! Extremely hard to put down, this book is a must for fans of Jane Austen or regency literature. A very satisfying mystery, the clues are there but the solution, while well-substantiated, is complex enough to elude even a keen reader`s guesses
