India Black and the Widow of Windsor / by Carol K. Carr

India Black and the Widow of Windsor: A Madam of Espionage Mystery - Carol K. Carr

Once again I enjoyed spending time with an India Black book.  India Black and the Widow of Windsor sported some colorful characters, in particular the Dowager Marchioness of Tullibardine, who really brought life to this book.


While this India Black installment was still fun, it desperately suffered from repetitiveness.  The plot was slowed down by a considerable amount of filler, which usually consisted of the Marchioness supplying some form of comic relief.  The filler was entertaining, but not particularly varied, and did not always serve the plot. 


The author did supply some tantalizing clues about the lives of both India and French, which will be fun to look into in future books, and I feel like that clever Vincent is starting to come into his own as well.  Certainly the future holds much for these characters, and I look forward to finding out what that is.
