This is my first book by Ally Broadfield but will not be my last. I really liked her writing and will quickly be finding more. of her books. Lady Abigail Hurst is our heroine, who is engaged to be married. But at her engagement ball she finds husband to be in a compromising position with a maid...who later turns up dead. Abigail turns to her best friends brother and our hero, The Marquess of Longcroft, Edmund Townsend. Edmund has always been smart, bookish and Abigail feels that he would be of great help to her to solve this murder so that she can call off her wedding. This is a really good read with some twist and turns... I enjoyed having this book and hope that you will too!
