LOVE IT OR LOATHE IT

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The mystery of Highgate Rise held my interest. I guessed the murderer but I think it was mostly a lucky guess. While the plot keeps the story going what I really enjoyed were the characters. The author, Perry, does a great job in creating characters that are intriguing and many layered. I especially love Charlotte and Thomas and their family and the peaks into not only their lives, but the things that bring life enjoyment and the inner struggles they experience. I also love the time period and getting looks into life in London during a time that is often romanticized. Perry delves into social issues in this series and I found the theme of greed and pride and the effects on not only self but also others, timeless.
