Book 2 in the Florence Nightingale Comedy Mystery Series
When a Buckingham Palace lady-in-waiting is killed, Poppy Throckmorten is up to her crinolines helping her mentor, Florence Nightingale, solve the murder. But in tracking the clues, they uncover a plot to kill Queen Victoria herself!
Poppy must use all the detective skills she’s learned from Florence to foil the villains before the young monarch’s first meeting with her future husband, Prince Albert. This is a Clean and Wholesome read sweetened with chuckles and snark.
No one does dry humour like Me Silkstone.
Florence Nightingale as a forensics expert. All she really wanted was to open a nursing school for women, geeeez. She and Poppy Throckmorten, her 16 yr old sidekick and journalist plus Grandma Throckmorten, old but young in spirit.
Corsets kill. I had a pretty good idea how. No, not by suffocation.
