    Death Comes to London 4 Stars Lucy Harrington and her sister Anna travel to London for the Season and become involved in a murder investigation when the Dowager Countess of Broughton drops dead during a ball. With the aid of Major Robert Kurland, who is in the capital to accept a B...

    An excellent cozy historical mystery that takes place during the Regency period. Really well fleshed out characters that aren't idealised versions of any kind. The mystery was incredibly well constructed too - just too many variables! Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1061...

    The story wasn't bad, but the writing was dreadful. I remember the first book in this series as being nothing special, but it certainly wasn't as poorly written as this one. Abandoned ship after 50 pages. An hour of my life completely wasted! ...

    Almost never do I like the second book of a series better than the first, but Death Comes to London is a rare exception. A more intriguing mystery (better plotted, too), more romance and a better-developed cast of characters made Lucy and Major Kurland's second adventure a really delig...

    3.5 stars I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review. I found this to be a delightful cozy English mystery story set in the Regency Period. Lucy Harrington and her sister, Anna, leave the charming village of St. Mary to participate in the "Season" in London. T...

    4.5 stars, because I continue to enjoy the heck out of these, and the annoying father isn't in this one. Also, the mystery is less immediately predictable in this, SO. (Also, I read the first one yesterday, and already have the third out from the library.) I just, I really like them...

    I received a copy of Death Comes to London from a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. This novel is the second in the Kurland St Mary mystery series by Catherine Lloyd However unlike in the first installment, we join the main characters in London, not Kurland St Mar...

    It was a quick read, but not quite as good as the first. The mystery isn't as compelling as is the look at a Season in London, and I couldn't quite buy the really horrendous behavior of Miss Chingford (who was petty and shallow in the first book, but mindful of how she came across to o...

    This is fast becoming one of my favorite cozy series! I love the two main protagonists and the regency England setting these take place in. This was had good mystery and I am eager for book 3! p.s. I have listened to both books so far on audio and highly recommend this format. The ...

    Death Comes to London is the follow up to Death Comes to the Village, featuring the detective skills of amateur sleuths Major Robert Kurland and Miss Lucy Harrington. In this second installment Lucy has been able to make her way to London for the season that she?s always wanted. She ...

    An extremely well-plotted mystery that really kept me guessing, Death Comes to London is the second in the series but works fine as a stand alone. (I've already picked up book one, though--be warned! This series *might* be habit-forming ;) Seriously--the audio's downloading as I write ...

    If you're curious, London's an amazing place. - David Bailey Lucy Harrington, the reliable daughter of the village rector, accompanies her beautiful (and younger) sister to London for the season. Although Lucy enjoys tending to her father's flock, she is eager to find a husband and ...

    A year later in March 1817 Lucy Harrington and her sister Anna leave Kurland St. Mary to have a season in town. Both looking for husbands. Not long after Major Robert Kurland is summoned to London to accept a baronetcy for his war deeds. When the grandmother of a Major's friend - the...

    I must admit that I would never have read this if it hadn't been a gift. It was a fairly good cosy mystery, although the plot was held together by threads of convention and I found some characters insufferable. However, I must certainly not let my own feminist principals get in the way...

    Maybe the author was rushed to get this second book out? It is not up to the level of the first book in the series. This one needs some assistance from an editor and at least one more draft. I still find the main characters interesting so I'll read the 3rd installment, but this one was...

    It's a universally accepted fact that nobody can write a mystery like the British. Just think: Christie, Conan Doyle, Chesterton, Perry, Beaton, to cite only a handful. So it follows that most of the best mysteries are set somewhere in The United Kingdom. To be sure, they do have all t...

    An absolutely delightful read. I was really excited for the second book after the first and this one captures the same Regency spirit as the first title. The mystery is a fun who-done-it and I love the London setting of this one but the two main characters are my favorite. They are...

    I enjoyed this second book in the series. I like the interactions between Lycy and Major Kurland. It reminds me of mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. It was a fun, quick read, but I did figure out who the murderer was fairly early on. Looking forward to reading the next in the series. ...

    An extremely well-plotted mystery that really kept me guessing, Death Comes to London is the second in the series but works fine as a stand alone. (I've already picked up book one, though--be warned! This series *might* be habit-forming ;) Seriously--the audio's downloading as I write ...

    A year later in March 1817 Lucy Harrington and her sister Anna leave Kurland St. Mary to have a season in town. Both looking for husbands. Not long after Major Robert Kurland is summoned to London to accept a baronetcy for his war deeds. When the grandmother of a Major's friend - the...

    I must admit that I would never have read this if it hadn't been a gift. It was a fairly good cosy mystery, although the plot was held together by threads of convention and I found some characters insufferable. However, I must certainly not let my own feminist principals get in the way...

    Maybe the author was rushed to get this second book out? It is not up to the level of the first book in the series. This one needs some assistance from an editor and at least one more draft. I still find the main characters interesting so I'll read the 3rd installment, but this one was...

    3.5 stars, I really liked it. This was a fun if frustrating Regency mystery and sequel to "Death Comes to the Village" - frustrating because Lloyd leaves us hanging at the end regarding our two main characters, Lucy Harrington and Major Robert Kurland. Lucy is in London for a belated S...

    It's a universally accepted fact that nobody can write a mystery like the British. Just think: Christie, Conan Doyle, Chesterton, Perry, Beaton, to cite only a handful. So it follows that most of the best mysteries are set somewhere in The United Kingdom. To be sure, they do have all t...

    An excellent cozy historical mystery that takes place during the Regency period. Really well fleshed out characters that aren't idealised versions of any kind. The mystery was incredibly well constructed too - just too many variables! Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1061...

    The story wasn't bad, but the writing was dreadful. I remember the first book in this series as being nothing special, but it certainly wasn't as poorly written as this one. Abandoned ship after 50 pages. An hour of my life completely wasted! ...

    I enjoyed this second book in the series. I like the interactions between Lycy and Major Kurland. It reminds me of mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. It was a fun, quick read, but I did figure out who the murderer was fairly early on. Looking forward to reading the next in the series. ...

    I must admit that I would never have read this if it hadn't been a gift. It was a fairly good cosy mystery, although the plot was held together by threads of convention and I found some characters insufferable. However, I must certainly not let my own feminist principals get in the way...

    Maybe the author was rushed to get this second book out? It is not up to the level of the first book in the series. This one needs some assistance from an editor and at least one more draft. I still find the main characters interesting so I'll read the 3rd installment, but this one was...

    3.5 stars, I really liked it. This was a fun if frustrating Regency mystery and sequel to "Death Comes to the Village" - frustrating because Lloyd leaves us hanging at the end regarding our two main characters, Lucy Harrington and Major Robert Kurland. Lucy is in London for a belated S...

    It's a universally accepted fact that nobody can write a mystery like the British. Just think: Christie, Conan Doyle, Chesterton, Perry, Beaton, to cite only a handful. So it follows that most of the best mysteries are set somewhere in The United Kingdom. To be sure, they do have all t...

    This second book in the series by Catherine Lloyd was a pleasant read and the fact that I had not read the first was no handicap in picking up the relationships already established. In March of 1817 Miss Lucy Harrington is going to London with her sister so Anna can have a proper comin...

    An excellent cozy historical mystery that takes place during the Regency period. Really well fleshed out characters that aren't idealised versions of any kind. The mystery was incredibly well constructed too - just too many variables! Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1061...

    The story wasn't bad, but the writing was dreadful. I remember the first book in this series as being nothing special, but it certainly wasn't as poorly written as this one. Abandoned ship after 50 pages. An hour of my life completely wasted! ...

    Almost never do I like the second book of a series better than the first, but Death Comes to London is a rare exception. A more intriguing mystery (better plotted, too), more romance and a better-developed cast of characters made Lucy and Major Kurland's second adventure a really delig...

    4.5 stars, because I continue to enjoy the heck out of these, and the annoying father isn't in this one. Also, the mystery is less immediately predictable in this, SO. (Also, I read the first one yesterday, and already have the third out from the library.) I just, I really like them...

    It was a quick read, but not quite as good as the first. The mystery isn't as compelling as is the look at a Season in London, and I couldn't quite buy the really horrendous behavior of Miss Chingford (who was petty and shallow in the first book, but mindful of how she came across to o...

    This is fast becoming one of my favorite cozy series! I love the two main protagonists and the regency England setting these take place in. This was had good mystery and I am eager for book 3! p.s. I have listened to both books so far on audio and highly recommend this format. The ...

    Warning for anyone reading the ebook edition of this book: don't read the excerpt or description for Death Comes to the Fair at the end! It is book *4* in the series, not the next book, and contains spoilers for book 3. Review: decent historical mystery with enjoyable slow burn roma...

    Around the Year in 52 Books 2017 Reading Challenge. A book that is a continuation of another. The Harrington sisters have gone to London for season. Major Kurland has been called to London by the Regent. While in London, they become embroiled in the affairs of the Broughton family. ...

    I liked this book in the series as well as, if not better than, the previous one. I like getting to know Robert and Lucy now that their characters are in a more developed stage. I find I am liking Robert much more than I previously might have and think he might be "softening up" a bit....

    An excellent cozy historical mystery that takes place during the Regency period. Really well fleshed out characters that aren't idealised versions of any kind. The mystery was incredibly well constructed too - just too many variables! Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1061...

    The story wasn't bad, but the writing was dreadful. I remember the first book in this series as being nothing special, but it certainly wasn't as poorly written as this one. Abandoned ship after 50 pages. An hour of my life completely wasted! ...

    4.5 stars, because I continue to enjoy the heck out of these, and the annoying father isn't in this one. Also, the mystery is less immediately predictable in this, SO. (Also, I read the first one yesterday, and already have the third out from the library.) I just, I really like them...

    It was a quick read, but not quite as good as the first. The mystery isn't as compelling as is the look at a Season in London, and I couldn't quite buy the really horrendous behavior of Miss Chingford (who was petty and shallow in the first book, but mindful of how she came across to o...

    An extremely well-plotted mystery that really kept me guessing, Death Comes to London is the second in the series but works fine as a stand alone. (I've already picked up book one, though--be warned! This series *might* be habit-forming ;) Seriously--the audio's downloading as I write ...

    A year later in March 1817 Lucy Harrington and her sister Anna leave Kurland St. Mary to have a season in town. Both looking for husbands. Not long after Major Robert Kurland is summoned to London to accept a baronetcy for his war deeds. When the grandmother of a Major's friend - the...

    I must admit that I would never have read this if it hadn't been a gift. It was a fairly good cosy mystery, although the plot was held together by threads of convention and I found some characters insufferable. However, I must certainly not let my own feminist principals get in the way...

    Maybe the author was rushed to get this second book out? It is not up to the level of the first book in the series. This one needs some assistance from an editor and at least one more draft. I still find the main characters interesting so I'll read the 3rd installment, but this one was...

    It's a universally accepted fact that nobody can write a mystery like the British. Just think: Christie, Conan Doyle, Chesterton, Perry, Beaton, to cite only a handful. So it follows that most of the best mysteries are set somewhere in The United Kingdom. To be sure, they do have all t...
