First Chapter Review: Death of an Aristocrat by Anya Wylde

The author of this cozy mystery sent a copy along for my review.

BLURB: The gossip columns can talk of nothing else, and even the Regent is intrigued. The murder of Lord Beazley at Gopshall Manor has caused a sensation, and the fact that two sweet governesses could have done it has further tickled the nations bloodthirsty soul.

Lucy Anne Trotter, who stands accused, steals a horse and hurtles off to convince the only man in the country who can save her bacon— the national hero and the most handsome man in England, Lord William Hartell Adair. With him by her side, she sets out to discover the Gopshall family’s secrets and the murderer.

In true Anya Wylde style, plenty of madness, kisses and burning breeches make an appearance. It’s a carriage ride not to be missed.

COVER: This cover art is whimsical. Unusual for a murder mystery, I feel it works because this is said to be a "Laugh Out Loud Cozy Mystery." It certainly makes the reader think of the countryside.

FIRST CHAPTER: After a prologue where someone has been murdered, Lucy Anne Trotter finds herself in this opening chapter in a spot of trouble.

KEEP READING: Definitely! Not only does Wylde have a knack for fabulous descriptions, she immediately introduces the reader to engaging, unique, and unusual characters that draw the reader in. I am eager to see what happens next.
