The Vital Principal is a smart, witty Regency who-done-it with a dash of romance. The mystery is solved in a logical and entertaining manner and there are enough suspects with believable motives to keep the reader guessing until the end.
I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author.

An interesting mystery from beginning to end

Pru Bransford is suspected of murder by the inquiry agent hired to reveal her as a fraud. Even when falsely accussed of murder; Pru Bransford keeps her head, remains calm, and eventually her innocence is proven. An interesting mystery from beginning to end.
Amy Corwin's writing style flows easily and keeps the reader interested, and continually guessing "what comes next." In each chapter, the tension mounts between the different characters involved, and continues throughout the book. The suspense grows gradually, and builds until the final chapters where the murder is finally revealed and apprehended.
Even after the mystery is solved, the story continues. I love a good story where the ending is just as good as the beginning, and Amy Corwin delivers. A great novel for mystery buffs. As for the "christian fiction" genre;tThere seems to be an underlying note that inquiry agent Knighton Gaunt believes in God, but it is understated. Gaunt quotes in Chapter five that "there is only one truth."
Though the language is clean, and this book is readable for most of my followers; I would recommend this for 13+ due to some of the more adult-oriented content of the story.
