Sonnet to a Dead Contessa (Lady Trent Mystery Series #3) by Gilbert Morris

Lady Trent must rely on her newfound faith to solve the mystery . . . and save herself.

In London, 1858, women of British nobility are being murdered with alarming frequency, so Scotland Yard calls on Lady Serafina Trent and her crime-solving partner, Dylan Tremayne, to help piece together the perplexing clues. With Dylan's help, Serafina has garnered acclaim as a brilliant detective—solving mysteries by relying on her astute observation and scientific reasoning.

But in the midst of solving these crimes, Serafina's relationship with Dylan meets unexpected stress when his childhood sweetheart returns. Torn between desire and decorum, Serafina desperately wants Dylan to be happy—but in the arms of another woman?

After a lifetime of viewing the world through a practical lens, Serafina begins to examine her own soul--and realizes her need for Jesus. Yet will her faith save her life when all clues point to Serafina as the murderer's next victim?

Enjoy Victorian England through the eyes of Christian Fiction's most beloved author.

I started reading his first story of this series. I love the characters, the way they grow. The whodunit was easy to figure out with this story than the first two. The characters were good. I love the trilogy. You need to read the first two to appreciate this one. This story is a bit "pushed". I think some of the characters were pushed somewhat out of their storyline. It wasn't as mysterious as the earlier stories and the plot was very see-through from the beginning. It is still an enjoyable read. I liked the ending. The author assumed a lot during the writing which is sad. It was like he had a lot to explain and took shortcuts. His previous writings are far better. I do not know if this is the end or these characters. In many ways, I hope not. Yet, if this story and its lesser plot and the push to make things religiously/romantically/politically RIGHT were to continue in the next installment - I would want the story to end here. Normally, I avoid religious based stories. This story makes it a part of the character's personality.

Really wish I realized it was about Jesus before I bought it. That's what I get for not reading the whole blurb.

The 3 volume Lady Trent mystery series were very enjoyable reads with some unexpected surprises along the way. I greatly enjoy all the Gilbert Morris books. They are well written with excellent character development plus interesting tie-ins with the historical settings of their time periods.

This is the final installment in the Lady Trent Mystery series and it ended well. I liked how the relationships ended up. The mystery was not as prevalent in this installment, but I was still guessing until the end. (Full review at my website)
