A Lady Compromised: A Rosalind Thorne Mystery
Miss Rosalind Thorne is someone other women come to for help when they have nowhere else to turn. As she traveled to the country to help her friend, Miss Louisa Winterbourne, with her upcoming nuptials, she was contacted by Miss Helen Corbyn. Helen asked for a meeting to discuss a matter she needed help with, although she did not say what the matter was. Rosalind finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery she was not prepared for. To further complicate matters, she was invited to the country by the Duke of Casselmaine, Devon Winterbourne, with whom she was previously betrothed before the Thorne family scandal thwarted those plans. Now she must try to plan a wedding, see if there is anything left of her relationship with Devon, and try to solve a murder without completely disrupting her life.
Even though this is the fourth book in a series, I did not feel lost and was able to enjoy it as a stand-alone novel. The imagery of the pomp and circumstance, gowns, and lavish homes transported me to a time long ago. The characters were well rounded and the story, with all its twists and turns, was well thought out and unpredictable. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
