Overview

Our Lady of Pain (Edwardian Murder Series #4) by M. C. Beaton

Lady Rose Summer, the wayward Edwardian debutante who keeps getting mixed up in disreputable adventures, would swear she is not a jealous woman. After all, she knows her engagement to private detective Captain Harry Cathcart is only a ploy to keep her parents from shipping her off to India to find a husband. But then Harry's latest client, Dolores Duval—-a vision of curves with a seductive French accent—-starts appearing everywhere at his side. And that changes everything.

In a fit of rage, Rose threatens Dolores, only to be found the very next day, standing over her dead body. The newspapers rush to convict her, but can Harry and Superintendent Kerridge of Scotland Yard clear Rose's name and put the real murderer behind bars?

Filled with drawing-room scandal and murderous intrigue, Our Lady of Pain by M.C. Beaton is a delightful addition to her beloved Edwardian Murder Mystery series.

Somewhat plodding at times but still kept me reading until the end. Having now read two of the series, I doubt that I will purchase the third. The problem for me was that the characters spent so much time critisizing and misunderstanding each other that there was no real chemistry between them to hold the reader's attention. No really tender moments or introspection or background that would allow the reader to better know, understand and feel sympathy for any of the main characters, except perhaps Daisy, the maid/companion.
