2007: #103 – Callander Square (Anne Perry)
Book #103 was Callander Square, the second book in Anne Perry’s Thomas & Charlotte Pitt series. The back of the book reads:
Murders just didn’t take place in fashionable Callander Square, so Inspector Pitt’s well-bred wife Charlotte couldn’t resist finding out why one had. Suddenly there she was, rattling the closets of the very rich, listening to backstair gossip, and unearthing truths that could push even the most proper aristocrat to murder….
This was a good second entry in the series, but I feel like Thomas Pitt is just a secondary character. I was hoping to see more of him in this book, since the first was primarily focused on Charlotte. I’d like to see more interaction between him and Charlotte in their private lives. The mystery was solid, though.
