The New York Times Bestselling Series
Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and chief superintendent for New Scotland Yard, will marry Kate Wakefield in three weeks. It’s inevitable–the invitations are out, the flowers are ordered, the cake is chosen. But murder waits for no man, and no wedding.
In London’s prestigious West End, a disgraced CEO has been murdered at Hotel Nonpareil, an exclusive destination. No one, it seems, liked Michael Martin Hughes. Not his estranged wife, Thora, or his defiant son, Griffin. Not Hotel Nonpareil’s manager, its head of security, or perhaps even the other two women in Hughes’s life: his future bride, Arianna, or his secret girlfriend, Riley. Still more ominously, before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of a potentially more unforgiving foe: Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Deepal “Paul” Bhar.
For the first time, CS Hetheridge, Kate and Bhar find themselves under tremendous pressure to uncover the killer in the shortest time frame ever. Has Scotland Yard, not to mention Downing Street, lost confidence in Hetheridge? Will the murder conviction rest on hard forensic evidence, a mountain of circumstantial details, or an impulsive theft? Find out by returning to the world of ICE BLUE and BLUE MURDER in SOMETHING BLUE, the third mystery featuring Lord Hetheridge, Kate Wakefield and Paul Bhar.

Tensions Rise as the Wedding Day Approaches
All your favorites are back and have a wedding to plan in addition to solving a murder. I really enjoy this series because of the characters. The relationship between Tony, Kate and Paul continues to strengthen and they have a real understanding now of one another. They are a team and they protect one another. Their interactions are usually pretty funny. The usual villain, Sir Duncan Godington, is back as well.
The author takes some time to give us Tony's, Kate's and Paul's point of view at different points in the story. This one is more focused on Tony. His life is in for a major change. Going from a bachelor to a husband with a small child in the house as well as her disabled brother is quite a challenge. There is even some discussion of them adding to the mix with their own child. Tony also takes an interest in his daughter and seems to now want to pursue a relationship with her. Kate's mother and sister are coming out of the woodwork and the press and Scotland Yard are putting a lot of pressure on the couple to solve the murder fast.
Kate is stressed by all the attention. She really worries about her mother and sister harassing the couple. We also learn about Paul's life with his mom and his dating habits. He is in for a major change as well. We are introduced to some new characters who are suspects in the murder. They are a diverse group and quite a challenge for the team to manage and get accurate information from in order to solve the crimes. As with the other stories in the series, it is the relationships that get the focus of the attention.
It is a great series and I encourage you to check them all out. I received a copy in return for a honest review.
This series is a fun read with serious happenings and funny ones too.
Like the regular characters. Not difficult to put down. Romantic part better than the side stories and plot.
