Death on the Sapphire by R. J. Koreto

Death on the Sapphire (Lady Frances Ffolkes #1)Lady Frances has some history in solving mysteries. Even though she is a peer's sister and a peer's daughter, she doesn't act like the rest of her contemporaries. She doesn't live at home, she's a suffragette, and she doesn't shy away from talking to the police. Case in point, when her friend's brother (apparently) commits suicide and his manuscript about fighting in the Boer War disappears, Lady Frances jumps in to help. In trying to solve the mystery, Frances accidentally uncovers a truth about the war that several prominent men would rather remain hidden.
This book got off to a slow start for me. Took awhile to get into it and continued to be a bit like trading water but I overall enjoyed it in the end and hope to read the next book in the series.

This book came out June 14
Three and a half stars
Followed by Death Among Rubies
