Lady Rose Summer's debut into high society is a complete disaster. Rose's father suspects her fiancé Sir Geoffrey Blandon to be nothing more than a first-degree blackguard and calls on Captain Harry Cathcart, the impoverished younger son of a baron, to investigate. After Harry brings forth evidence of Blandon's dishonorable intentions, a scandalous public breakup follows. To redeem her name, Rose attends the last-chance soirée at Telby Castle for aristocratic women with dubious matrimonial prospects. But when a malicious guest is found dead under strange circumstances, Rose becomes far more intrigued with discovering the truth than with landing a suitor. From Telby Castle's whisper-filled corridors to country lanes with secrets at every turn, Harry and Rose must unravel a web of lies, rumors, and perilous plots as a clever murderer sets out to make Rose's disastrous season her last.

Actually, this (historical romance) story is pretty good. It starts off really well but then gets a little silly but there are some interesting factoids. For example, women using face powders containing arsenic, unusual (but deadly) cures for syphilis and my all time favorite: "I am a gentleman, sir, you may take my word upon my honor". Yeah, right! The class system in England is very well depicted here as well as the underlying hatred for the gentry.
