Lured by the promise of a rare and elusive butterfly, the intrepid Veronica Speedwell is persuaded by Lord Templeton-Vane, the brother of her colleague Stoker, to pose as his fiancée at a house party on a Cornish isle owned by his oldest friend, Malcolm Romilly. But Veronica soon learns that one question hangs over the party: What happened to Rosamund? Three years ago, Malcolm Romilly's bride vanished on their wedding day, and no trace of her has ever been found. Now those who were closest to her have gathered, each a possible suspect in her disappearance. From the poison garden kept by Malcolm's sister to the high towers of the family castle, the island's atmosphere is full of shadows, and danger lurks around every corner. Determined to discover Rosamund's fate, Veronica and Stoker match wits with a murderer who has already struck once and will not hesitate to kill again....

Disappointed by this outing. While rich in detail, too predictable.

I'll just say it upfront: I think this is the best Veronica Speedwell book yet. It features, among many other things: a remote island in Cornwall; a creepy castle; lots of family secrets; and, at long last, some definitive steps forward in Veronica & Stoker's relationship. This feels like a Gothic throwback in the best possible way, and here's hoping Raybourn writes many, many more future installments featuring our intrepid heroine.
