Description

She can't believe her parents are gone. But the noblewoman's arrival in England has exposed a mysterious conspiracy that stretches across the British Empire.

Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth is still grieving her mother and father's death at the hand of an ugly fever when she has to leave everything behind. Leaving her birthplace in India and navigating London's stiff and starch Victorian society has only compounded her grief and brought further frustrations. An invitation to a sleepy rural estate on the border of a quaint country village seemed like the perfect escape. That is until a thief triggers events that turns everything she ever knew upside down.

Unconvinced by the fingers pointing at the surly, but handsome groundskeeper as the thief, Lady Sarah can't help but search for the truth, with a local constable to help her in her hunt. But with shady characters lurking down every leafy lane, and a perilous secret buried somewhere in her late father's belongings, the determined peeress could be poking a very large hornet's nest.

Can this clever aristocrat unmask a crook before she loses her most treasured heirlooms?

If you like historical mysteries, unexpected twists and murder conspiracies, you'll love C.S. Woolley's captivating series.
