This was the book I read to wind down before bedtime most nights. Interesting without being provocative or overly stimulating, it helped settle my thoughts and was quite calming. I highly recommend it for this purpose. In addition, this book is marvelous for anyone doing research into the history of food (naturally). Meticulously cited.

Not quite what I was expecting. Thorough but dull and dry. Not something read for pleasure and painful for even the most enthusiastic of food history/anthropology/sociology buffs.

Caroline Malcolm, with her brother and mother have returned from India after living there for twenty years. Then her mother's death she decides that it is time she learnt who her father really is. Taking advise she relates to the Earl of Moriston, an occasional detective, all she knows.
We have a plot which includes diamonds, 'accidents', and secrets that have been kept for years as the Earl and his family try to unravel the clues.
I enjoyed this Regency tale as it had more mystery than romance and the style of writing was easy to read. I liked the portrayal of the characters, and the mystery was sufficiently entertaining.
