It's 1885 London, and the mysterious Dear Miss Hermione is on holiday. She has temporarily assigned her niece, Violet, to cover requests for help and passed along the latest letter, which is from Ivy, a newly married young woman who is in fear for her life. Mia Hutchinson-Shaw reveals Violet's lack of confidence in matching her aunt's talents. When she reaches Ivy's village, she happens upon Ivy's funeral. Hutchinson-Shaw portrays Violet as an intelligent, no-nonsense woman with a natural wit. As the mystery unfolds and murder appears evident, Hutchinson-Shaw introduces the dark side of the colorful characters Violet interrogates. Hutchinson-Shaw enhances the author's depiction of nineteenth-century London in this charming introduction to a woman who is well ahead of her time.
