Good wrap-up to the series. The story begins with a prologue, spelling out how Phoebe and Max ended up married. Phoebe, a British woman trying to wrest her inheritance from her uncooperative family, needs a husband to fulfill the requirements. Max, a Marine between deployments, draws her attention in a Reno bar. Something about him leads her to propose a marriage-of-convenience arrangement, and Max, who is always game for a challenge, jumps right in. But Max disappeared the next day without leaving contact information.

Four years later, Phoebe tracks Max down at the California ranch where he works with his two Marine friends, Luke and Noah. He never told them about Phoebe, so everyone is shocked that he is married. Phoebe still needs Max's help, and asks him to continue in the role to convince her family. Neither expected the sparks of attraction that rekindled from their wedding night. I loved seeing Max and Phoebe get to know each other as she settled into her temporary stint as a ranch wife. The more time they spend together, the deeper their connection and feelings grow. Some wonderful scenes highlight how good they are together and how happy they can be. But both of them have emotional baggage that makes it difficult for them to believe the other would want more than their temporary marriage.

I got frustrated with both because neither communicated well with the other, leading to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. Matters became more complicated when Phoebe's brother showed up, trying to convince Phoebe to return to England. George was manipulative in his attempt to get his way and zoomed in on Max's insecurities. He also knew which buttons to push to get Phoebe to react in the way he wanted. Both Max and Phoebe have some self-examination to do before they can let go of the past. I loved the advice that Max got from his friends and what he did with it. At the same time, we get to see how Phoebe's relationship with Max has changed her. There is a terrific scene with George, and later her grandmother, that shows off the new Phoebe. Max's big moment was fantastic, and I loved seeing them work things out.

The epilogue was terrific. Seeing all three couples and catching up on their lives was great.

Victorian London 1838. Did the dishonourable and bankrupt Earl of Morton leave a newer will. How will this affect Lady Caroline and her sister Susan. Then people connected with the family law firm start dying. Mrs Frogerton seems to be once again the driving force in the mystery but will Caroline finally solve the puzzle of the will.
An entertaining and well-written Victorian mystery with its cast of likeable and varied characters. Another good addition to this enjoyable series.

Miss Morton and the Spirits of the Underworld is the second volume in the Miss Morton Mysteries series by Catherine Lloyd and it is one fun, fast cozy historical mystery. Set in 1838, Mrs Frogerton has asked Caroline to accompany her to a seance.. Caroline is skeptical but the medium seems to know things abt her family. She decides to return and asks her friend, Dr Harris, to accompany her. This time, the medium says something that seems to anger Harris. When the medium is later found dead, Dr Harris becomes the main suspect. Miss Morton is convinced he is innocent and, with the aid of her employer, she is determined to prove it no matter the danger.

I have enjoyed both books in the series. The characters, both old and new, are, fir the mist part very likeable. There are plenty of twists and turns and red herrings to keep the story moving at a brisk pace and keep the reader guessing. Definitely an entertaining read for fans of historical cozies with interesting and stron female protagonists.

I received an arc of this book from Netgalley and Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review
