Amity Wells, American heiress, is engaged to Jeremy, Duke of Bainbridge, and her mama is throwing a huge party for their friends and family. Lady Emily is counted one of Jeremy's best friends and so the Hargreaves are invited. Unfortunately, as often happens around Lady Emily, a death occurs: the lifeless form of Chauncey Neville is found lying prostrate in Jeremy's room. Was it suicide or murder? Did the wrong man die? Who would want to kill the bridegroom's best friend? What this cozy mystery lacks in plotting and suspense (mystery fans will easily spot the killer) is more than offset by the gently amusing comedy of errors, the witty banter of privileged Victorians on holiday, and Lady Emily's growing resemblance to Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody. We even brush shoulders with the Queen! This tenth delightful entertainment featuring the Hargreaves detective duo is very acceptable indeed. For fans of Amelia Peabody, of course, but also readers who can't resist Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey novels, starring the British aristocrat and her delectable husband, the brooding detective Nicholas Brisbane.

In this latest in the New York Times best-selling series, Lady Emily Hargreaves heads to the French Riviera to attend the nuptials of her friend Jeremy, Duke of Bainbridge. Alas, one of Jeremy's friends is poisoned and his body found in Jeremy's hotel suite, which rather puts a damper on things. Was Jeremy the intended victim?

Alexander's diverting 10th late Victorian mystery (after 2014's The Counterfeit Heiress) finds Lady Emily Hargreaves and her husband, Colin, in Cannes, France, where they're celebrating the engagement of a childhood friend of hers, Jeremy Sheffield, Duke of Bainbridge. A confirmed bachelor, Jeremy has surprised everyone by falling for wealthy American Amity Wells. Emily doesn't quite trust Amity's "studied perfection," but her doubts are overshadowed when a member of their party is found dead in Jeremy's hotel suite. The coroner rules it suicide, but Emily suspects murder—and wonders whether Jeremy was the real target. Alexander weaves a compelling story of intrigue among upper-crust fin de siècle society, though the Wells family fails to transcend stereotypes of crass, conniving Americans. Chapters from Amity's perspective, narrated in the third-person, provide glimpses of colonial India and Egypt, though they do little to flesh out her character. Readers who guess the killer's identity may still be surprised by the motive. Agent: Anne Hawkins, John Hawkins & Associates. (Oct.)
