Fans of the Lady Julia Grey Mysteries will love these Georgian historical mysteries.

Fleeing the attentions of the handsome and commanding Marquess of Darkefell, Lady Anne Addison arrives on the doorstep of a dear friend seeking nothing but rest and relaxation, but soon finds herself putting her investigative talents to work after a sighting of the Barbary Ghost. Always a skeptic of the supernatural, Lady Anne immediately suspects the apparition is nothing more than a diversionary tactic to conceal smugglers on the beach below her friend's house.

When the beguiling marquess follows her to Cornwall, Anne is distracted from her ghost hunt by his alluring kisses, until murder gets her attention. Forced once again to work with the marquess to uncover the truth behind a mystery, she soon discovers that her passionate attraction to him has not abated. Should she run from him again, or give in to temptation?

This book was originally published under the name Donna Lea Simpson.

Despite a rather slow beginning, it picks up speed and becomes engrossing. The characters are interesting and engaging even when they act like twits! There's no difficulty in following the plot even if, like me, you haven't read the first book. The publisher's blurb is pretty good for setting the stage. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Beyond the Page Publishing via NetGalley.

Two weeks have passed since Lady Anne Addison left Yorkshire. She is now staying in Cornwall, at the village of St. Wyllow with her old friends, brother and sister Pamela and Marcus St. James. But all is not well and as she spends a night on the cliff she sees The Barbary Ghost and what looks like smugglers down on the beach. So Lady Anne decides to investigate. Meanwhile Lord Darkefell has come looking for her. Although this can be read as a standalone details from the first book are mentioned, and you can also read how these characters are developing. Again, another delightful well-written Georgian mystery, with a touch of romance. I have enjoyed reading about these characters and not just the two main ones.
