I was lukewarm on book two in the series, but I have really come to enjoy book three!
This time around the incorrigible are back at Ashton Place and the cast of characters who join them are an intriguing wacky group. Lord Ashton’s mother arrives and regales readers with the details of her husband’s grim death. It seems he drowned in a tar pit!
Mother Ashton also brings her friend and paramour, the Admiral with her. He is an over-the-top rake who is trying to marry Mother Ashton for fortune in order to start a business raising, selling and cooking ostriches.
The gypsy from book two makes a return appearance along with Simon, when they come to conduct a séance. They are trying to contact the dead Lord Ashton.
Tangles and mysteries end the book and readers will have no sense of closure. But as we have heard so often— The Hunt is On!
I am looking forward to see what wild and zany antics readers will be treated to in book 4!
