Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard, and Detective Kate Wakefield are now married. Sitting home one evening they get a call that one of their Mayfair neighbors has been involved in an incident. When they arrive they discover their neighbor has been killed and the chief suspect is the boyfriend of DI Deepal (Paul) Bhar, Kate's partner. The victim also has three ex-wives who may or may not be involved. Meanwhile on the personal front, Kate's lower class family is causing trouble for Lord and Lady Hetheridge.

I've read this four book series over the last month. It's an extremely light read that is perfect for a plane ride. The secondary characters are really interesting, especially Paul and they add a lot of humor to the mix. It's a pleasant read, but not really compelling in any way. ( )

An unpopular neighbor is killed in the Hetheridge's neighborhood. The marriage of Lord Hetheridge, Chief Inspector at Scotland Yard, to his Detective Seargent, Kate Wakefield, has caused some issues at the Yard. Along with DS Bhar, the team works to find the killer. The writing isn't brilliant but it's fun and sometimes very humorous. The characters are superbly likeable! ( )

Lord Hetheridge has been asked to resign and is settling in at home to married life while deciding what to do career wise. Kate has been assigned to Jackson's team. There's plenty of Kate's family troubles for Tony and Henry to figure out. While Kate works to solve the murder of a neighbor and Tony tries to help from a citizens aspect. ( )

This is my favorite so far in a favorite series. The scenes of murder and violence alternate with Kate's family woes (which are enough to provoke murder and violence), the deep love of the Hetheridges, politics, and a considerable amount of humor. Jameson delightfully fleshes out some of her minor characters and I hope we will continue to see as much of them in later books. ( )

Once again, this book is dedicated to the fans of Lord & Lady Hetheridge. You'll never know how truly grateful I am.
First words
Once upon a time, Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and chief superintendent for New Scotland Yard, enjoyed a neat, orderly life.
Woemn cried and raged as most men never dared. Then they dragged themselves up by their bootlaces and got on with it.

Book description

Modern art dealer Granville Hardwick has a way with people -- a way of making them wish he were dead. His London gallery is filled with works of questionable merit, his dating pool consists of other men's wives, and his home is the eyesore of a fine old neighborhood. The neighborhood of Scotland Yard's Chief Superintendent Tony Hetheridge, as a matter of fact. So when Hardwick turns up dead, bashed on the head by a rather tasteless reproduction, it's Hetheridge and his new bride, Kate, who embark on solving the case.


When he married Kate, Tony expected things to be different. But with Kate's ne'er-do-well relatives making trouble on the home front, and his own enemies attacking from within Scotland Yard, the case of the dead art dealer and three unfaithful wives might do more than change Mayfair. It might change Lord and Lady Hetheridge forever.

Return to the world of Ice Blue in Black & Blue, the fourth in the New York Times bestselling Lord & Lady Hetheridge mystery series, which readers call "witty," "packed with interesting characters," and "consistently entertaining." [retrieved 6/1/2015 from Amazon.com]
