    1. Kester Grant on said:

      The first in a start to a fantastic mystery series, starring the delightfully acid witted Frances - exactly the type of heroine I adore. By turns hilarious and swoon-worthy and constantly keeping you guessing, I can't wait to read the sequel!

    2. Mary Keliikoa on said:

      I loved this book on so many levels. I have not been a huge historical mystery reader, but this book has changed my view. I fell in love with the Victorian time period, and with Frances--who is a woman with a mind of her own. Her personality and wit shines throughout. There were moments I was laughing out loud and others where the writer had me concerned about the welfare of the characters I had come to love. The mystery was so well-plotted, I didn't know until the final reveal who was guilty, a [...]

      I read a pre-published copy. If you like the Victorian era, laughing, and headstrong heroines, this book is for you. It’s a tightly plotted romp of a mystery that will keep you guessing to the end!Can’t wait for a second book from Dianne Freeman.

    4. Melissa17 on said:

      This book is the mysterious historical romp of your dreams! Frances is just starting to come into her own as an independent woman, so her push/pull of propriety v. independence is a joy to behold. The mystery is well plotted and paced and the descriptions of Victorian fashion in this novel are to die for. (Pun intended.) This is the start of an incredible series!

      I've missed Downton Abbey so very much. Thankfully, the witty and fast-paced "A Lady's Guide to Etiquette and Murder" has helped fill the aching void. When American heiress Frances Wynn becomes a widow in 1899 after the death of her philandering Earl of a husband, she decides to risk British society gossip by living independent of her dead husband's money-grubbing family. Deception, romance, and scandal ensue, keeping this reader enthralled until the very end. This smart, tightly-written mystery [...]

      As soon as I started "A Lady's Guide," I knew it was right up my alley. If you're a fan of Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily series or Anna Lee Huber's Lady Darby mysteries, you will love this as much as I did. Personally, I'm always looking for more series in this vein, and many of the others I've read tend to fall short. But Dianne Freeman brings Victorian London to life with her delightful prose. I also loved that her clever heroine happens to be an American who married into the aristocracy, which [...]

      Dianne Freeman’s debut novel, A Lady’s Guide to Etiquette and Murder, is a witty romp of a Victorial mystery. The heroine, Frances, is a recently widowed and coming out of mourning for her dead rake-of-husband. She is surprisingly perspicacious and her struggles with propriety and her journey to independence is delightful. There is an understated chemistry between her and the hero, that is smoldering before bursting into flame. The mystery is well-plotted and full of twists. Freeman does an [...]

      This is a fast-paced, super fun historical mystery. I loved the twist of having the heroine be an American who married into the British peerage; it made the book feel fresh. I got to read this book pre-publication, and I can't wait for there to be more in the series!

    9. Emily on said:

      A fantastic Victorian cozy mystery with a fun cast of characters. I can't wait to read more books in this series!
