5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs Miss Marple when we get to have Alexandra?
Reviewed in the United States on 29 August 2020
In this second book, Ellen Read takes us to Daylesford and immerse us into the gold mining history of 1860s Australia. Along the way, we discover a trail of bodies... coincidences or curse? More importantly, what does James Thornton, Alexandra’s grandfather, have to do with any of this? Once again, I found myself pondering the clues. To top it all off, Alexandra and Benedict are on their honeymoon!

As with the previous book, The Dragon Sleeps, it was easy to allow myself to step into the story with the beautiful descriptions of the furniture, china, antiques, paintings, drapery and floral arrangements. It was like a literary peek into 1928 Victoria. Yes, Stardust is still playing and Alexandra and Benedict are still dancing. Some things will never change. <sigh>

The mystery has its roots way, way back and there were many convoluted twists. One I saw coming; one I did not. Edith! She had a “character growth spurt” which I much liked. She’s reading Pride and Prejudice and trying to model herself after Elizabeth Bennett. Ellen Read expertly weaves this into the story without dropping or missing a stitch. It was like tasting dessert. It is my hope that Edith will continue to develop and blossom. I think this was the biggest takeaway for me. One more thing, no make that two things. I love the way Reed brought in the Inca connection; but even more the history of the Swiss Italians and, of course, the food, “recipe competition” and the competition between Thornton Park and the Manor.

So, we have Grandfather Thomas, a mistaken identity, goldmines, emeralds, a necklace, a curse, murders, love, a love lost and a love letter. Who needs Miss Marple when have Alexandra?
