The Carstairs Conspiracy
The verdit on my books in the Historical Novels Review is always awaited, which is why I was pleased with Sara Wilson's thoughts on The Carstairs Conspiracy.
As sole heir of the late Duke of Penrith, Abigail Carstairs is the target of many fortune hunters. But it would also seem that she is the target of a murderer. In desperation she calls on Lord Sebastian Denver to investigate.
As well as being a renowned investigator, Sebastian is also a notorious womaniser. Even so Abigail is attracted to the handsome nobleman - and he to her. Sadly this growing attraction cannot prevent the murderer striking again. It's a race against time to find the culprit before he makes another move.
A beautiful heiress, a handsome hero and a perilous adventure - this novel has all the elements of a really delightful historical romance. The Carstairs Conspiracy is such fun and a great way to while away a few hours.
