Andrea Penrose~~ 4 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
Lady Arianna Hadley was disguised as a male chef for an affluent family and had baked a chocolate dessert for a party the Prince Regent was attending when the Prince got sick. Chef Alphonse, aka Lady Arianna, was the first suspect on the list. Alessandro de Quincy, the Earl of Saybrook, was sent to investigate the poisoning of the Prince Regent and force a confession from the chef. Within minutes of meeting the chef, Saybrook knew immediately that it was a disguise. After questioning Lady Arianna, they decided to work together, building a strategy to find the assassin.
A sprinkle of spark, murder, and danger add intrigue to this well‑scripted story. The characters are likable and believable. Ms Penrose has added a sweet addition, mouth‑watering chocolate recipes that are sure to make everyone smile.
