Mystery, Roses and Murder, this is a great British mystery. Lord Castlemoor ends up investigation a series of murders that lead directly to his uncle. His uncle claims that he is innocent. The murderer leaves a rose and a note with each murder he commits. His investigation keeps leading him back to Rosewell and Ariadne Wellfleet who is an expert in the names and types of roses he finds. Lord Castlemoor finds himself attracted to Ariadne even though her status is not fit for an Earl. Lord Castlemoor continues to find clues to prove his uncles innocence, unfortunately the clue’s keep pointing towards his uncle, and more people turn up missing…
I enjoyed A Rose Before Dying, this book has great twists in it along with a touch of romance.
