I just finished “And Only to Deceive” by Tasha Alexander, and I’m ready to read more of the series.
It’s set in Victorian England and Lady Emily is a widow so that gives her more freedom(s) than married women have. Her husband died after they’d been married for six months so she hardly knew him.
In this “case”, she’s discovering more about him and his friends. He collected art antiquities but there are some mysteries about his motives and intents that she’s trying to uncover.
My sister gave me this book to read (bless her!!) and I didn’t know it was a series until I searched the author at my library. At this time, there are 7 total in the series, so I’ll see how far I get.
