When Lady Drummond dies of apoplexy during a portrait painting session with Lady Kiera Darby, the artist immediately suspects Lady Drummond’s husband of murdering her. After enduring three years of abuse, Kiera recognized her subject’s body language and knows she was an abused woman. In spite of the doctor’s listed cause of death, it is not difficult for Kiera to convince inquiry agent Sebastian Gage, her fiancé, to help her investigate. Society’s rules and regulations, other crimes, and complications in the pregnancy of Kiera’s sister combine to increase the strain placed on the engaged couple’s relationship. Because this well-written book – fourth in the series -- is set in 1831 Scotland, it is a history lesson as well as a mystery. – Guest Reviewer Sandra Hale

The first volume in Leigh’s Dregs duology, set in the Grishaverse, is a heart-wrenching combination of caper novel and character studies. Think “Leverage” meets “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” but in an alternate magical Russia. Six of Crows has one of the best opening sentences ever, kicking off a grand magical heist adventure with characters readers will be thrilled to cheer for. This book is so much fun!  – Maryelizabeth
