Lady Katherine wants to live independently and follow in her father's footsteps as detective. Her father relents and says she can have her dowery and live as she wants if she manages to catch the Pink-Ribbon killer. No one else-including her father has been able to catch this person. In order to get invited to one of the few society dances she accepts a job as a matchmaker for a girl who no one thinks will ever find a husband with impeccable lineage! Well, you will laugh as Katherine acts as chaparone to this girl who loves, of all things, insects!

Matchmaking can be a cut throat profession as you will find out--and another detective is dogging her footsteps to see if he can figure out the killer. But when another girl almost meets the same fate as two of the other socialite-and then the killer sets his sights on Katherine--well--

This does have a surprisingly happy ending as the girl no one seems to want--finds the man of both theor dreams!

Anther historical that kept me captivated from the very beginning to the very end!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Lady Katherine only has one week to catch the Pink-Ribbon Killer. Not only to stop the killing, but also to prove her skills at detection to her father and win her dowry and independence.

There’s only one catch—she has to take one last matchmaking job to do it. Never mind that the match is impossible—all the better because if she fails, then no one will seek her services again. The job provides the perfect cover, especially when her peculiar investigatory techniques are mistaken for unconventional matchmaking attempts.

Things would go a lot smoother if she weren’t knee-deep in suspects and thwarted at every turn by a rival matchmaker. But when the killer strikes again, Katherine’s investigation leads down a dangerous path. Too late, she discovers that she has a lot more to lose than her dowry.
