1805. An engagement party is taking place for Mr Richard Montague, son of wealthy landowner Sir Edgar Montague, and his fiancee Catherine. During a dance with his beloved, a strange thing happens: a man appears at Richard's shoulder and appears to communicate something to him without saying a word. Instantly breaking off the engagement, he rushes off to speak to his father, never to be seen again. Distraught with worry, Catherine sends for her spinster aunt, Miss Dido Kent, who has a penchant for solving mysteries. Catherine pleads with her to find her fiance and to discover the truth behind his disappearance. It's going to take a lot of logical thinking to untangle the complex threads of this multi-layered mystery, and Miss Dido Kent is just the woman to do it.

Uneasy mix, the author seemed to be looking for a blend of Jane Austen and Agatha Christie. She didn't find it.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

Anna Dean crafts a good Victorian mystery. There are clues, a murder, suspense, and a cast of characters easily identifiable. Dido Kent is an interesting character who is not afraid to ask the questions that may very well put her own life in danger. Think the sequel will be worth reading as well.

Another sleuthing spinster that solves the problems and mysteries of those around her who can't seem to behave themselves. It is an easy read, light but it still held my attention.

The first chapter could probably be reduced to a single sentence, and the extraneous description omitted.
