After a glorious week in London, the newlyweds have escaped the city to visit Molly's great-aunt in the quaint English village of Marlow Crossing. The setting is idyllic, as beautiful and serene as Molly could hope for, but, as the senior staff writer for Collector's Weekly knows, appearances can be deceiving. And when a local woman turns up poisoned to death, Molly's convinced there's more to the story than meets the eye.
Putting her honeymoon on hold, Molly agrees to help local inspector Devon Boyle with the case, especially since the sleepy village presents such a small number of suspects. But when two of them go missing and the tragic death of another woman comes to light, Molly realizes she's up against a much more sinister criminal than she thought. Untangling a web of lies and deceit as she searches for a motive and a murderer won't be easy, but Molly's determined to put all of her detective skills to use to catch a killer before her trip and her life are brought to a sudden end.

The Depths and Wages of Love and Greed
Two timelines . . . late 1800s and current day . . . and both intrigued me to no end . . . Molly and Matt are married and on their honeymoon in England . . . but as we all know, death and murder seem to follow her wherever she goes . . . and this time it has followed her across the big pond . . . visiting her great aunt Tessa, who has recently taken a fall, and was unable to make it to their wedding, they are enjoying a quiet and restful time in the countryside in the Cotswalds . . . when one of Aunt Tessa's neighbors turns up dead, poisoned by a plant growing in her Tessa's garden . . . perplexed by the murder, Molly is enlisted by the local police to assist in interviewing the locals about their possible knowledge of the crime and their association with the victim . . . I loved the history of the "eye miniature" . . . something I had never heard of before . . . so much so I had to look them up, also known as "lovers eyes", they date back to the late 1700s when the Prince of Wales secretly sent one to widow, Maria Fitzherbert. This series is one of my favorite of Ellery Adams', and I'm sad that this is the last one. Its been an absolutely wonderful ride, along with Molly from the first book to the last . . . I highly recommend the book and series!

Great story, but narrator was monotone
I enjoyed the mystery. However the narrator was monotone and her different voices for the characters were not good.
