The eponymous heroine is an unusually free-spirited widow in Victorian London.  She assists those of the upper class in solving the mystery behind scandals.  This lengthy tome is actually 4 separate novels.  It’s dark, slightly underhanded, and good fun.


Only two people from the breakfast table braved the weather.  One of these was Mrs Bella Wallis, a widow, but a very assured one, not at all dismayed by circumstance.  She was a striking-looking woman in her late thirties, tall, maybe a little on the buxom side, her undoubted appeal amplified by a humorous mouth and wonderfully grey eyes.  The previous evening she had been much admired by the entire house party for her genial common sense and — this from her own sex — a comfortably elegant way with clothes.  Men found her entrancing.  ~Loc. 66 of 12217
