This novel was a lot of fun. It kind of reminded me of the off-beat comedic mysteries like a Fish Called Wanda and the like. The characters were amusing and the plot light. A clean read and doesn't rely on the typical bodice ripper devices and is pure storytelling. Lots of twists and turns. A lot of madcap characters and everyone is a suspect as to who would kill Lord Sayer. However, the part that couldn't be smoothed over for me is when they were in London, how Sayer could have been spotted or discovered. At his estate, sure no problem but in his townhouse...mmm...not so easy to hide. A fun read all the same.
