Booklist Reviews 2017 May #2

In the terribly class-conscious Regency period, Atlas Catesby, the youngest son of a recently designated baron, and his friend, the Earl of Charlton, are returning to London from Bath when they must stop in suburban Slough to repair a thrown horseshoe. Hearing a commotion in the public square, they investigate—and Atlas ends up purchasing the wife of a local landowner, who had put her up for sale to the highest bidder. They continue on to London, installing Mrs. Lilliana Warwick at the home of Atlas' sister. Lilliana claims to have no family and desperately misses her sons, whom her husband had claimed, but she's oddly frightened when they pass a certain royal carriage in the park. Then Mr. Warwick turns up dead at his haberdashery off Bond Street. The Bow Street runner assigned to the case hints first at Atlas' guilt, then Lilliana's. Atlas loves a puzzle and works at this one, unearthing startling truths. The first of a new series, this historical mystery will appeal not only to cozy readers, but also to lovers of Regency romances. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Quincy's debut Regency mystery introduces adventurer Atlas Catesby, whose travel plans have been derailed by a carriage accident, which has forced him to remain in England until his broken foot heals. Passing through a small village, he witnesses a man auctioning off his wife. Atlas buys Lilliana Warwick and deposits her at his sister's home. But Lilliana, educated and self-possessed, begs to return home to her two sons and sneaks out to visit them. When her husband is murdered, both she and Atlas fall under the suspicion of a shrewd Bow Street Runner. Now Atlas has several puzzles to solve while he recuperates. Who killed Godfrey Warwick? And, why is Lilliana in hiding? VERDICT Regency London comes vividly alive in this atmospheric historical; the witty prose and well-developed characters will remind readers of Georgette Heyer and Charles Finch.—LH

Set in 1814, this cleverly plotted series launch from historical romance author Quincy (Seducing Charlotte, etc., as Diana Quincy) introduces Atlas Catesby, a baron's intelligent youngest son with bad memories and time on his hands. On the way home to London from Bath, Catesby stops at a rustic country inn around the time crude tradesman Godfrey Warwick is auctioning off his wife, the well-bred Lilliana, in the inn's yard. His protective instincts aroused, Catesby "buys" the woman for £30, but both husband and wife have dangerous secrets, and he soon finds himself responsible for Lilliana in ways he never expected. Catesby's sleuthing skills impress as he seeks to solve a murder that occurs weeks after the sale, with several suspects in the running. Quincy on occasion slips into clichéd prose ("His blood turned cold"), but she does a good job depicting the class tensions and gender relations of Regency England. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (July)
