Enjoyed life in 1800 something England. Will this put it on my completed list?

The detail of the setting, customs and dress make this cosy mystery richer than most.

So fun, it's better then her other book. I really laugh at some of the characters in this book. The author has such talent!

I was so happy to borrow this after reading The Tortoise etc. This book is equally sweet, although much sillier. Set in Victorian Times, it's about the royal hangers-on that live in Hampton Palace, and this time it's a proper murder mystery. If you like cozy murder mysteries or (gahh) that Macall Smith guy, you should enjoy this.
