Greatly enjoyed Rose Simpson but am not sure as if I'm keen to read more. Became a little bored at the beginning with not enough "action" while everyone was being interviewed!

Not the best but still a reasonable readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 March 2016
It isn't the best of the series by any means and even though the murderer was rather obvious I still quite enjoyed this book. Where I think this particular book fell down was in the interplay between the police inspector and the character of Rose Simpson. Instead of allowing her to sit in on every interview, he should show her the door. But because the people he is questioning ask for her to be present he let's her on the basis that he'll get nothing out of them unless she is present! What sort of officer is he? One wonders how he manages to solve any crime without Rose Simpson present in his investigation. I also get a bit fed up with books where the heroin is always right and guesses 'who did what' before the police by the simple expedient of not telling them everything she knows. Any self-respecting police officer would, and indeed probably should, arrest her for withholding evidence! However, she's allowed to get away with it because she's managed to catch the perpetrator. In defence of Margaret Addison, she is not alone in using this technique, if you can call it that.

Disappointing compared to othersReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 August 2015
Was really disappointed with this book. I've read the other Rose Simpson mysteries and loved them. This one seemed to drag and drag. I found myself speed reading pages after page waiting for something interesting to happen. There were pages of description that didnt add anything to the story. Sorry Margaret, it's like you recently been to the JK Rowling school of 'why tell a story in 300 pages when you can do it 500'! I ended up skipping the last chapter in the hope that the end would be good and it was just to predictable! Sorry!

Great murder mystery.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 February 2019
Another great Rose Simpson murder mystery weaving suspense and red herrings. Including a whiff of romance from the Inspector of police, directed at Rose. But Rose is to marry Cedric, Earl of Belvedere, so look forward to the next murder for Rose to solve during her wedding and marriage.
A good light readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 October 2017
I liked this series of books and the lives of rose and her lord ,but times in the story the author seems to repeat herself and it gets boring and I tend to flip through these. I’m just starting no number 5 in the series . I hope this series carries on because I would like to see how rose gets on in the future with her husband and being a detective.xx

Such a charming murderReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 August 2020
If murder can be charming 😁 I had decided who the murderer was but was interested by the unfolding of the story. I do like this period and the genteel way the story is told.
