I have come to the conclusion that anyone who reads these books looking for a satisfying mystery is going to be heartily disappointed The books are relatively short and of the two books I ve read in the series the mystery portion doesn t really get going until into the second half of the book In fact I get the strong feeling reading this book that the mystery isn t really the raison d etre No in this one it felt like a let s hang out with Harry and Rose some and see what happens next and oh by the way let s solve a murder bookAs I was just pleased to listen to the prose and spend time with Harry and Rose the wafer thin mystery plot wasn t really bothersome I do have to say that I liked the structure of the book a bit than I thought I would It meandered uite a bit The book starts out with Rose wanting to be an Independent Girl and actually do that horrid middle class thing known as working Humoring her her parents with the collusion of Harry find a suitable job for her as a bank typist Rose correctly and uickly realizes this is nothing but make work to appeaser her Both her parents and Harry realize that as soon as the pampered aristocratic Rose actually gets to experience what a real lower to middle class working girl must experience that she ll hot foot it back home right awayRose is a lot spoiled and a lot naive and instead of making Rose some intrepid heroine who cheerfully makes do with her little hostel room and manages to live on her meager income the author doesn t sugar coat Rose s faults Rose is horrified by the poverty of the hostel and the small amount of food her little money buys She is disdainful and a little snotty And as predicted she latches onto the first excuse to go back to her comfortable upper class existenceFrom there it meanders into a strange subplot with her parents allowing themselves to be bamboozled into having Rose committed to an Asylum And finally we get to the mystery element which is about the murder of a young man who is a suspected blackmailerAll the while Harry and Rose fight their obvious attraction to each other while their faithful servants Daisy and Beckett are trying to throw them togetherAnd in the meantime woven throughout the whole story there are a bunch of side characters of various interest Harry s secretary her mother the psychotic Dr of the asylum a sympathetic baker a pair of larcenous servants etc Chesney employs the narrative device of letting us know as asides throughout the book how each of these people s interactions with Rose and Harry affects their lives either good bad or in one case shocking We get to follow each of them to their eventual fate which is told in a sometimes conversational sometimes prophetic tone I am really enjoying these books even if they aren t uite what i expected in a mystery
