    J'ai beaucoup aimé l'intrigue, qui malgré quelques longueurs, m'a captivée jusqu'à la fin. C'est mon premier livre de cette auteure et ce ne sera sûrement pas le dernier.

    Excellent!This romantic suspense story is one of Wentworth's very best and will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read. The hero is one of my favorites so far, having now read about half of her books. A very satisfying tale of an heiress on peril and the intrigue surrounding her and those closest to her.

    Appréciable surtout pour l'ambiance, l'élégance et les personnages. Il se passe un truc quand on ouvre un roman de Patricia Wentworth, c'est dépaysant, charmant, guindé et indémodable. L'histoire se déroule dans une maison familiale, dans la campagne anglaise. Une jeune héritière est suspectée de folie, ou tenterait-on de la zigouiller pour s'emparer du magot ?!Simple, mais efficace.
