What a wonderful discover in reading Death Comes for Desdemona! It’s a cozy mystery in the truest sense of the word, one you can let your teens read without worry. For historical mystery buffs, another regency mystery! 

Kate Ketterling is a young lady, wise beyond her years and an actress; her father’s desire is for her to be the leading dramatic actress of her lifetime. He finds work for her at the Covent Garden Theater in London. Even though she is not playing the lead, Kate is appreciative of the work. While there, murders occur and Bow Street isn’t making much head way in solving the crimes. Since Kate knew the victims, she attempts to solve it with the help of a gentleman named  Archie. 

I found it to be an easy read, in a romantic era, with a charming cast of characters. I hope there will be more to come!
