Jane Austen meets Lara Croft: Beatrice Knight has enough to contend with: a zebra is dead on her lawn, her horse is possessed and a gentleman has arrived with the temerity to propose to her. To top it off, her dead husband Gideon has absconded with an automaton, threatening to return for his wife. The wife in question however soon has other issues, for a killer has moved into town with a nasty habit of carving up the victims. As luck should dictate, who should be the next target but Mrs Knight herself?
The character of Beatrice is getting even more interesting and I can’t get enough of her relationship with Mr. Timmons. I can’t wait for the next book! I adored the language, the period, and the place of the story. Another winner!
