Kitty Underhay is happily engaged to Matt, and soon the pair will be married. However, there is a charity ball that they attend, and they are not the only ones who will be there. In fact, Kitty’s father Edgar will be there. And the previous books in the series, kitty had been searching for her father for quite some time, and now that they are able to spend time together, he will, indeed be giving her away at her wedding. However, at this charity ball, something tragic happens. The hostess, Lady Eliza Foxley, has been murdered. It does not take the police very long to have a very viable suspect, and that is Edgar, and he is immediately arrested for Lady Foxley’s murder
As Kitty has many times before, she is determined to get to the bottom of things, and her personal stake and this is more than clear. Kitty begins to look at some things about Lady Eliza’s life and her relationship with her teen daughter, as well as her sister. Considering that the police have determined that someone poisoned lady Eliza, and Kitty takes a close look at what was going on in her life as to any evidence that she might discover that will find her murderer.
I love this multi-layered story by Helena Dixon. Understanding the characters and their motivations, as well as the reasoning behind the poisoning, all while factoring in Edgar being charged with Lady Eliza’s murder, make this book a very intriguing read. This series has been enjoyable with each and every book, and with the wedding right on the horizon, this was indeed one of my favorites.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
