Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this series! This book was on my to-read list for a very long time before I actually got around to reading it. The good thing is that I loved the first book so much so that I immediately started reading the next book in the series and kept going.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Lady Emily book I had read "A Poisoned Season" accidentally prior to reading this book. Despite me reading a bit out of order, I didn't feel there were many spoilers. Lady Emily is a fascinating character, with modern views, despite living in the Victorian time period. Her husband dies under mysterious circumstances, and she sets out to find out what really happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storytelling I read this book in October 2000 and I still remember how absorbed I got in this story. Anne Rivers Siddons is an excellent writer and the stories she tells are easy to relate to while also making you think about things a bit differently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mystery, suspence and romance Lady Emily gets married to get away from her overpowering mother to a man she does not really know, and when he dies within the first year of her marriage Emily does not really know what to make of it. Emily finds society and her mother repressive and that being a widow grants her many freedoms which she does not want to give up so quickly. Emily begins to plan for her future and discovers that her husband really loved her and that someone might have killed him. Emily tries to figure out what happened to her late husband and find herself in the process. This book can be a little hard to read as it is based on a real time and place. It takes a little getting used to, but it is well worth it.
