Murder at Kensington Palace by Andrea Penrose

After reading Murder at Half Moon Gate and learning Charlotte’s secret (or at least one of them), I knew I had to continue reading the series. Next up is Murder at Kensington Palace.

A quote from Murder at Kensington Palace by Andrea Penrose

Charlotte Sloane has many secrets, but one is that she took over for her husband and pens the satirical cartoons as A.J. Quill. Using her network of street urchins, she discovers many things. For this one, Raven and Hawk inform Charlotte of another murder by the Bloody Butcher. But they didn’t know that this one was close to Charlotte as it was her cousin who was murdered.

A quote from Murder at Kensington Palace by Andrea Penrose

The Earl of Wrexham is a scientist. Really, he’s a chemist. He, along with his valet, performs lots of science experiments. But he is also willing to investigate murders, especially when Lady Charlotte asks him to help her. Since she doesn’t believe that her cousin killed his twin brother, Wrexham steps up to help her find out who did.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Murder at Kensington Palace, someone is experimenting with things they should not be. But how does it lead to the murder of Lord Chittenden, Lady Charlotte’s cousin?


Andrea Penrose weaves a story revealing details as needed. I was fairly sure who the killer was but I definitely did not figure out all the details as to why. I do love that this is set in the Regency period. This book IS on Kindle Unlimited. If you like the Regency time period and mysteries much like Sherlock Holmes, you’ll want to read this one. If you enjoy science, you’ll enjoy this.
