"Inspired by the novels of Jane Austen, this new mystery series set in 19th-century London introduces the charming and resourceful Rosalind Thorne, a woman privy to the secrets of high society--including who among the ton is capable of murder... The daughter of a baronet and a minor heiress, Rosalind Thorne was nearly ruined after her father abandoned the family. To survive in the only world she knew, she began to manage the affairs of some of London society's most influential women, who have come to rely on her wit and discretion. So when aristocratic wastrel Jasper Aimesworth is found dead in Almack's, London's most exclusive ballroom, Rosalind must use her skills and connections to uncover the killer from a list of suspects that includes Almack's powerful patronesses--and her own former suitor Devon Winterbourne, now Lord Casselmaine. Torn between her old love and a growing attraction to a compelling Bow Street runner, Rosalind must not only unravel the mysteries surrounding Jasper's death, but the mysteries of her own heart as well.."--… (mere)

When Rosalind Thorne's baronet father abandons his family, and Rosalind is nearly ruined by the scandal she is saved from disgrace by her god-mother Lady Blanchard.
A few years have passed and she has carved out a 'career' is managing the affairs of society’s most influential ladies.
When a body is found at Almack’s, Rosalind uses her contacts to try to solve the mystery.
Very enjoyable, hopefully there is more to come.

A quick, easy read. It was a nice break from anything serious. The story moved along at a good rate. I did not predict the ending. And I forgot everything about it within days of reading it. ( )

An interesting start to a series... I will need to read more in the series before determining whether or not I actually like it or not though. ( )

The characters and plot were fine, but are 2 hunky admirers are required if the audience isn't YA? I was never convinced that anything like the activities of Miss Thorne would be vaguely plausible in early 19th century London, and odd details kept jarring my involvement. ( )

Rosamunde Thorne has been left in disgrace after her father flees with his younger daughter rather than face the consequences of forgery in regency London. Rose has fashioned herself into a personal assistant to the “ton” to support herself. She gets a request from her godmother to stay with them to help with the transition of a move out of the country for her husband’s new post. She accompanies Lady Blanchard to Almac’s and while waiting a murder occurs. There’s coverups and an ex-love interest and a Bow Street Runner to help Rose figure out who, what and why. ( )
