Death Comes to London by Catherine Lloyd

Death Comes to London is the second book in the Kurland St. Mary mystery series by Catherine Lloyd. The series is set during the Regency.  The second book isn’t quite as good as the first, Death Comes to the Village, but it was still an enjoyable book for me.

The growing romance between the independent Lucy Harrington, attempting to find her beautiful sister a husband during London’s season, and Major Robert Kurland, still recovering from a war wound and now being offered a baronetcy by the Prince Regent for his heroism, is slow but steady.  Some of the science seemed a little modern for the time, but on the whole the historical details seemed true. The mystery is a bit over the top, with too many plot details and too many deaths, but the book was still an entertaining and diverting read.

I recommend the series to cozy mystery and fans and lovers of Regency novels. The Galesburg Public Library owns both books in the series.
