This novella is the prequel to book #2 – A Question of Inheritance.
Not all secrets from the past stay buried!
From the end of book #1- A Man of Some Repute. Freya and Hugo’s discovered a letter from a mysterious Mary Louise to the late Lord Selchester, stating “My Dearest Husband”.
Had Lord Selchester married this Mary (Marie) Louise? And if so, was it legal? Was his marriage to Freya’s aunt bigamous? And will this put a stop to Lady Sonia being able to sell the castle to a Swiss Hotel Consortium?
Freya gets warnings from the family and others, to drop it. But Freya is fighting with her conscience, and just can’t let ‘sleeping dogs lie’.
This series has to be read in order, to get the full effect. This is the prequel to book 2, and it adds background to the next book. But is only available in ebook/kindle, so can be missed out, without spoiling the effect of the next book – A Question of Inheritance.
Really enjoying this series. With a good set of characters, in a well crafted and written mystery.
Looking forward to reading more of this series.
