Manners and Means combines high fantasy with an old-fashioned house mystery, using a lush setting and a tight whodunit to sweep the reader right along with young Mistral, an account manager on the grand estate of Lord Gregori, as he attempts to catch a killer.
An attack on the Lord of the manner frames Mistral’s lover; makes him suspect his dearest friends. Not knowing whom to trust, Mistral must find the would-be murderer before they find him, and before they uncover the secret he keeps to protect those he loves.
Full from start to finish with intrigue, suspense, and erotic encounters fraught with danger and desperation, Manners and Means leads the reader in an intricate dance of court politics and lover’s plots that never fails to entertain.
