History, mystery and a pleasing touch of faith

Lord Danvers and the beautifully resourceful Tonia are off to Scotland on honeymoon, but the story starts with a dead body in a most unexpected place just a few days before. Beautifully evocative and well-researched descriptions bring the Crystal Palace World Fair to life just as vividly as Scottish lochs and the streets of Edinburgh. Meanwhile tales of the infamous Burke and Hare derail conversation and distract Tonia’s thoughts from beauty to horror, but what worries her more is her new husband’s sudden silence, so soon after the wedding.
Threads of mysteries weave together—the beautiful tartan, the mysterious parcel, the dead body (of course), medical school shenanigans, half-recognized strangers, and Lord Danvers’ quiet dismay. But they all come together in the end. Sins of the fathers might threaten the sons, or honesty of sons just might save the fathers. But Lord Danvers and his beautiful young wife seem set to stay together, pray together and get out of plenty more scrapes together by the story’s end. These mysteries are a fun series, nicely based on tales of genuine crimes and real history, well-balanced between the murk of squalor and the honesty of wonder of luxury, and pleasingly true to a low-key thoughtful sense of faith.
 
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a second-hand copy and bought it quick, since I already know I enjoy this author and this series.
