“This series gets better with every book…”
~ Under the Covers

Who knew the life of a cook for a wealthy household could be so exciting? And involve so much sleuthing and murder? Kat Holloway once again dives into an investigation when her neighbour is found murdered. Their immediate suspect is Chinese scholar Le Bai Chang a man Kat counts as a friend after a chance encounter. Determined to prove his innocence Kat once again puts her considerable intelligence towards solving the case.

Kat is a fantastic heroine, her strength, intelligence and kindness makes her a compelling and extremely likeable character. However, Ashley hasn’t just created a great heroine, the characters around Kat, like her mouthy assistant Tess, the eccentric Lady Cynthia and the mysterious Daniel are all well rounded and interesting. This makes the story really engaging as you invest not just in finding the murderer but the more domestic stories in the background.

This series gets better with every book, not only was the mystery intriguing but watching Kat’s every day life and trials unfold was also fascinating and kept me turning the pages. Then there is the extremely slow burn romance between Kat and the mysterious but dashing Daniel. It all leaves me eager for the next book in this series.spacer
