I have not read any other books from the series, nevertheless, an author kept inserting short descriptions from the previous books to make the current one understand easier. Loved it.
A newly established Private Investigation Agency “Cannon and Sullivan” have received their very first case. The fact that the new client is Louisa’s previous employer – plays a huge role. The daughter of the Mitford family is on the run, and Louisa and her husband Guy are hired to locate and bring the girl back to England. The search takes the couple from London to Paris, and finally to Bayonne. While working on their first case, Louisa has accepted a new work, from a local Londoner searching for her missing sister. As the PI couple works on both inquiries, they soon establish a strange connection between the two cases.
Wonderful plot. I could not get enough of it. The simplicity of the writing, to well built-in twists – this novel includes it all: love, betrayal, and politics. Louisa’s role in the story is the strongest one, in the times when women had no major rights – she is not afraid to speak her mind, ask necessary questions, make her own observations, and act on it. She is dedicated to the cause. Not able to give up and leave tasks/actions unresolved. On the other hand – the Mitford family, based on this book I can tell – those are some feisty sisters and I would love to read and learn more about their stories. I can absolutely promise to look forward to the next Jessica Fellowes’ novels. Thank you, Net Galley and Minotaur Books publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
