Description

Axel Belmont, though a wealthy and much-respected botanist, occasionally takes a turn serving as magistrate in his rural corner of Oxfordshire. When the owner of a neighboring estate is the victim of a homicide, Axel initially suspects the man's much younger wife, Abigail Stoneleigh, of committing the crime.

But then Abby appears to be in harm's way, and Axel's investigation uncovers longstanding deceptions aimed at cheating her out of wealth and happiness. The solution to this deadly puzzle remains elusive, even as Axel captures Abby's heart and surrenders his own. Axel is a fine investigator, a devoted father, a brilliant scientist, (and an excellent kisser), but will he solve the mystery before the villain strikes again?

Contains mature themes.

Great story

Found the narrator a little off-putting but still enjoyed the actual story. Despite knowing it would be a happily-ever-after it had me wondering just how that was going to happen.

Would definitely read more Grace Burrows - but might avoid the narrator in future.

Well done mystery and romance

Axel Belmont, botanist, widower, and magistrate, investigates the murder of Gregory Stoneleigh. He soon discovers that the late Mr. Stoneleigh was a nasty piece of work. In fear for Gregory's widow's life (she was being poisoned by someone), Axel moves Abigail Stoneleigh to the safety of his home, Candlewick, while his investigation continues into the life of her late husband. A deep mutual love grows between the widower and the widow. It is hamper by the on going murder investigation, neighborhood gossip, and Axel's ambition for a fellowship at Oxford University (mere fellows are not allowed to be married).

I enjoyed this book tremendously, especially the character of Axel Belmont. Alas, he a fictional character.
