Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Historical
For Emily, accepting the proposal of Philip, the Viscount
Ashton, was an easy way to escape her overbearing mother,
who was set on a grand society match. So when Emily's
dashing husband died on safari soon after their wedding,
she felt little grief. After all, she barely knew him.
nearly two years later, she discovers that Philip was a
different man from the one she had married so cavalierly.
His journals reveal him to have been a gentleman scholar
and antiquities collector who, to her surprise, was
in love with his wife. Emily becomes fascinated with this
new image of her dead husband and she immerses herself in
all things ancient and begins to study Greek.
Emily's intellectual pursuits and her desire to learn
about Philip take her to the quiet corridors of the
Museum, one of her husband's favorite places. There, amid
priceless ancient statues, she uncovers a dark, dangerous
secret involving stolen artifacts from the Greco-Roman
galleries. And to complicate matters, she's juggling two
very prominent and wealthy suitors, one of whose
may go beyond the marrying kind. As she sets out to solve
the crime, her search leads to more surprises about
and causes her to question the role in Victorian society
which she, as a woman, is relegated.
