big improvement on the previous book. much more cohesive and interesting. in the end the main character does not go off with her love--she is an independent woman who goes off with the circus lol. independence in the 1800s huh? different but cool. ( )

I received this book in a giveaway. This mystery was the first I have read by this author. I understand that it is #3 in the series, but you can read it without having to backtrack and read the other two first. The main character is a strong willed woman who uses her skills as an actress to survive. I was not crazy about the whole story line of her lying about marrying the Lord, but that is a personal opinion. Also, I found the story to be a bit cluttered at times. Overall, it was a good story.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425271641, Mass Market Paperback)

From the author of Cinderella Six Feet Under, a beauty must solve a beastly murder.

Variety hall actress Ophelia Flax knows how to win over an audience. That’s why she’s accepted the marriage proposal of the brutish Comte de Griffe to nettle her occasional investigative partner—and romantic sparring partner—the pompous if dashing Professor Penrose. 

But with his boorish table manners, wild mane of hair, and habit of prowling away the wee hours, the comte has shredded Ophelia’s last nerve. She intends to disengage from her feral fiancé at his winter hunting party—until Penrose, his lovely new fiancée, and a stagecoach of stranded travelers arrive at the comte’s sprawling château. Soon she can’t tell the boars from the bores.

When one of the guests is found clawed and bloody in the orangerie, Ophelia is determined to solve the murder before everyone starts believing the local version of Beauty and the Beast. But until the snows melt, she can’t trust her eyes—or her heart—since even the most civilized people hold beastly secrets...
