"Amory Ames is looking forward to a tranquil period of reconnecting with reformed playboy husband Milo after an unexpected reconciliation following the murderous events at the Brightwell Hotel. Amory hopes a quiet stay at their London flat will help mend their dysfunctional relationship. However, she soon finds herself drawn into another investigation when Serena Barrington asks her to look into the disappearance of valuable jewelry snatched at a dinner party. Unable to say no to an old family friend, Amory agrees to help lay a trap to catch the culprit at a lavish masked ball hosted by the notorious Viscount Dunmore. But when one of the illustrious party guests is murdered, Amory is pulled back into the world of detection, enlisted by old ally Detective Inspector Jones. As she works through the suspect list, she struggles to fend off the advances of the very persistent viscount even as rumors swirl about Milo and a French film star. Once again, Amory and Milo must work together to solve a mystery where nothing is as it seems, set in the heart of 1930s society London."--

I enjoyed the book, it went pretty quickly. Like other reviewers I have a theory about what Amory's hubby is up to. I also found it odd that there was never any mention of the war. Every British anything I've read or seen about the 30s mentions THE WAR. Still it has a quick pace and lots going on. A good rainy day read!

Ashley Weaver hits another home run with her second book. She is one of my favorite authors. Her books are well written, interesting, fabulous characters. Great story mystery story telling without any unnecessary gore.

This sequel to 'Murder at the Brightwell' is just as enjoyable as the first installment in the series--it's a 1930s English society mystery, featuring a great protagonist in socialite and amateur sleuth Amory Ames (an her playboy husband, Milo). If you like the Victorian mysteries of Tasha Alexander or Deanna Raybourn, but are in search of a slightly more updated setting, try this series. I'm eagerly anticipating book 3 -- in no small part because I want to know whether my pet theory about what Milo's really up to is true...
