The first book in the Rosalind Thorne Mystery series

First rule of writing - write what you know. This author knew little to nothing of Regency England - just what she thought she had garnered from other badly written Regency novels. This was a huge no for me.

BTW - it's blackguard NOT blaggard. ugh

Fans of British fiction will really enjoy this well-paced regency mystery that kept me guessing (and reading) right until the end. A great debut for a new series, with a very promising cast of characters.
