The Countess of Warwick,

Overview

Sir Charles Sheridan is many things—an amateur scientist, a renowned photographer, and a skilled detective. And due to Victorian customs, he will soon become a baron—rendering him unable to marry American writer Kate Ardleigh. But even as customs keep them apart, a good muder case always seems to bring them together...

The Countess of Warwick, known affectionately as "Daisy," is the subject of endless rumors about her "unladylike" ways and temperament. But what happens during a weekend party at her Easton estate is uglier that any rumor. First, a stableboy is killed. Then a nobleman is murdered outide Daisy's well-known trysting spot. A murderer is on the grounds—and on the loose.

Seeking to avoid scandal, the Prince of Wales orders Sir Charles to solve the case. Together, he and Miss Ardleigh find that even the highest levels of society are no refuge from the lowest of deeds...

If you like history, literature, mystery and the English countryside, you will love the Charles and Kate Sheridan series. It is a wonderful read and such an escape from the troubles of the world today. Give me a cup of hot tea and a Robin Paige book and I am happy. I also highly recommend the Beatrix Potter cottage series.

Each time I read Robin Paige's series about Kate Ardleigh & Sir Charles Sheridan, I get a sense of coming home with these characters. Kate is an Irish American who inherited Bishop's Keep from relatives, & she writes Penny Novels that are frowned upon in her era. This is a cozy series that you just can't get enough of. I'm reading the whole series & loving every minute of it!
