John Pickett and his bride Julia depart London for a wedding
trip to Somersetshire, where Pickett faces his greatest
challenge yet: meeting his in-laws. Sir Thaddeus and Lady
Runyon are unimpressed with their new son-in-law, but the
squire asks for his help nevertheless. Lady Runyon believes
the house is haunted by the ghost of her elder daughter
Claudia, who disappeared thirteen years earlier and whose
body was never found. When Sir Thaddeus’s groom is
discovered dead, Pickett asks the Justice of the Peace (who
happens to be Claudia’s widower) for permission to
investigate. When Claudia’s childhood sweetheart takes a
hand, it appears the distant past is not so distant, after
all. It may not even be past ...

I tend to enjoy following characters into marriage. There
is an awful lot to adjust to but I think that in the case
of these characters where there is also the class issue to
contend with, there is plenty of material to explore.

know what happens to the characters.

I enjoy learning what happens to the characters 'after the
wedding'. How they cope with the transition after the
courtship is over.

What an interesting series! I enjoy reading about after the wedding in order to see how the characters grow in their relationship. Great excerpt. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I enjoy reading after marriage stories. In fact, I sometimes wonder what happens to some of the "they lived happily ever after" couples. This couple seems to have some exciting events happening around them and I'd love to read the book.

I like the marriage in books in most cases. If the books
continue in a series, I like to read a stand alone but include
the characters from the previous book(s).
