This book was so good! It did take a little while to get into, and you read more than half the book before the "crime" actually happens. Funny thing is that was ok because the suspense was so great! I kept changing my mind on what was going to happen. That is a good mystery when there are so many possible crimes in the making that you almost dread turning each page because you don't want it to be a certain character.
For instance I would think, "maybe Laura will be killed" then "what if it turns out to be Marian?" or "maybe I'll get lucky and Marian will kill the husband or the count" and many other scenarios. You'll just have to read to see what does happen and how they solve it in the end.
