Loraine4 Stars Out Of 5Good historical mystery.October 12, 2016LoraineQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love historical mysteries and this was a good one. I enjoyed the differences between the two main characters, Lady Serafina and Dylan. She had a scientific mindset and he had a creative one. It made for some interesting interaction between them, particularly when it came to Dylans faith. I did figure out who the killer was, but it was almost at the same time that they did. (Full review at my website.)
