There is a killer in London that is killing based off the biblical ten commandments. Scotland Yard has not been able to discover a link between the victims or who the killer might be. Lady Katherine Bascom, vivacious newspaper running widow, does some reporting of her own with her friend Miss Caroline Hardcastle (cookbook author) and discovers a witness that Scotland Yard had missed. They decide to write an article to help women to avoid becoming victims (very worthy cause) but may have made some errors in judgement. Since this in turn gets the head detective removed from the case annnndddd may have put the witness in danger.The reporting of the witness who had a description of a man which resulted in the arrest of a possible innocent man because of pressure from the Home Office (Parliament).
Lady Katherine heads to a house party to get help to release the possibly innocent man from her friend Lord Valentine who’s father is a peer then two murders occur similar to those in London. Which results in Detective Eversham being dispatched to the countryside to investigate.Hmmm who and why are these murders happening? Are they copycats or the same killer from London?
Detective Eversham and Lady Katherine have quite the chemistry and very strong personalities that clash in all the right ways. Can they get past that she is the reason he got demoted?
Lady Katherine’s two friends Caro and her friend Val who’s house party they attended also have some history and some animosity towards each other. But I can’t tell if it’s because they like each other or detest each other. You know I love a good enemies to lovers story. Glad to know they will get their own story in Fall 2021!
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 For the vivacious quick witted banter and steamy slow burn romance. I couldn’t put this one down! I had an idea of who it was but it kept changing but maybe I’m not that quick lol.
Thank you Net Galley and Grand Central Publishing for the arc copy for my voluntary honest review.
