My review at Booklist:

Sloane’s fifth title in the Regency Rogues series, following The Saint Who Stole My Heart (2012), finds Lady Sophia determined to find out why her mother was killed. After she hears new information about the death, she enlists the aid of Nicholas Bourne, her fiancé Langdon’s younger brother. Newly returned to England from India, Nicholas is initially reluctant, but agrees to help when Sophia says that, given her background as an aide at Scotland Yard and her criminal psychology avocation, she will hunt down the mysterious killer known as the Bishop. At first Sophia is a little uneasy in Nicholas’ presence, and finally realizes it’s because she loves him more than his brother, her intended. When she and Nicholas go to her family’s summer home where her mother was killed, and where she, Nicholas, and Langdon played as children, it becomes more and more difficult to resist their passion while they look into her mother’s final days. Sloane leavens the grim investigation and the angst of illicit love with humor in this satisfying tale.— Pat Henshaw ( )

This book was quite slow to get in to, but once I broke through it, I did enjoy it. Maybe if I had read the one's before I might have liked it better. ( )

I go read regency romance in sporadically. This is a good regency romance. I liked the way the characters interacted. Next time I'm in the mood for this genre, I'd pick up another of her books. ( )
