Murder in the Manor (Lacey Doyle series) Fiona Grace
Venice 1720. For Sophia fresh from a English countryside village it was all what she had dreamed of but with a repressive aunt whom she was accompanying, the art and beauty of Venice was being denied her. Sophia was no frightened miss and was determined to enjoy herself in this chance of a lifetime and this she did.
Henry on the other hand was sent off to the Continent to "repent" for his many transgressions! he was not repenting in the least but enjoying himself to the utmost. When his father died suddenly, he realized the depth of his responsibilities and had to return to England to face upto them.
They meet up once again in different circumstances, and the effect they have on each others lives is part of this novella.
The story is light hearted and since it is a very short one we are not able to see how it is going to develop further. Hopefully there will be a sequel.
