    3.5 STARSReflecting back on this book, I would hold to my earlier assertion that it s a bit like Miss Marple in Jane Austen s world Her curiosity and propensity to gently meddle are worthy of Miss Marple Her niece describes her as casting a satirical eye on others I rather wished for a bitof that from her, but I supposed what I was really craving was Jane Austen s wit.Anna Dean spreads out the clues such ...

    I enjoyed this first novel with Miss Dido Kent investigating the goings on at Bellfield Hall where her young niece has been left by her fianc with nothingthan a cryptic excuse for his departure I liked the clever narration that incorporated Miss Kent s letters to her sister so that we could have her first person perspective alternating with the third person narration There are some very heavy issues that are addressed in this mystery but they are dealt with in a fairly light way so that I enjoyed this first novel with Miss Dido Kent investigating the goings on at Bellfield Hall where her young niece has been left by her fianc with nothingthan a cryptic excuse for his departure I liked the clever narration t...
