Third in this series of Victorian mysteries featuring Lady Julia Grey and Nicholas Brisbane. This time Julia travels to Brisbane's newly acquired manor house in Yorkshire only the be confronted with mystery and gloom.
I like this series, despite its smattering of anachronistic Americanisms that shouldn't have made it through the editing process, but it seems to be declining already - the first book was definitely the best and this one isn't as good as the second one. The mystery in this book seems far slighter than in the previous novels and while the domestic arrangements of the various members of the March family are interesting too, I felt there was too much focus on those this time.
I'll probably read a fourth book in the series if there is one, but if it isn't substantially better than this one, I may well stop there.
