Overview

Grave robbing! Body snatching!

What dreadful thoughts to surround a couple on their honeymoon. But only two days before their wedding, Lady Antonia Hoover and Lord Charles Danvers discover a body—a murder victim—that points them toward a mystery filled with hatred, vengeance, and death.

Antonia and Charles spend their honeymoon in Scotland, seeing the sights and lending support to Charles’s cousin Gilchrist, the prime suspect in the murder case. As the mystery unfolds, Antonia’s fright increases. The case keeps pointing to the dark history of the resurrectionists, the grave robbers who sold bodies to anatomy professors in the late 18th century. How is Gilchrist involved in this murder? What hidden family secret is Antonia about to discover?

    Lord Danvers and the beautifully resourceful Tonia are off to Sc

    Lord Danvers and the beautifully resourceful Tonia are off to Scotland on honeymoon, but the story starts with a dead body in a most unexpected place just a few days before. Beautifully evocative and well-researched descriptions bring the Crystal Palace World Fair to life just as vividly as Scottish lochs and the streets of Edinburgh. Meanwhile tales of the infamous Burke and Hare derail conversation and distract Tonia’s thoughts from beauty to horror, but what worries her more is her new husband’s sudden silence, so soon after the wedding.

    Threads of mysteries weave together—the beautiful tartan, the mysterious parcel, the dead body (of course), medical school shenanigans, half-recognized strangers, and Lord Danvers’ quiet dismay. But they all come together in the end. Sins of the fathers might threaten the sons, or honesty of sons just might save the fathers. But Lord Danvers and his beautiful young wife seem set to stay together, pray together and get out of plenty more scrapes together by the story’s end. These mysteries are a fun series, nicely based on tales of genuine crimes and real history, well-balanced between the murk of squalor and the honesty of wonder of luxury, and pleasingly true to a low-key thoughtful sense of faith.



    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a second-hand copy and bought it quick, since I already know I enjoy this author and this series.

    Interesting Read

    I have found Donna Fletcher Crow's Lord Danvers series interesting and enjoyable to read as another insight into the earler Victorian period. However, I don't think that her characters have quite the depth to make them as memorable as those of other writers who have and are using the Victorian era as a backdrop, and her plot development is a bit narrow in its perspective and development. Nevertheless, if another book in the series becomes available, I won't hesitate to buy it as a "fun" read.

    What a shame

    The first chapter is a repeat from the first book in the series. Makes it difficult to figure out the story line at first but otherwise entertaining
