Wentworth Hall is lushly imagined, with a full complement of characters, both upstairs and downstairs. I got the feeling that Abby Grahame is a Downton Abbey fan.

The book is a fun romp, and good for YA and fans of YA. However, the ending was rushed and very "Deus Ex Machina". I disliked her sudden demonizing of one character in order to give everyone else a happy ending- it seemed like a cop-out. I also wondered what happened to the handful of characters she starts delving into, but then abandons by the end.

Still, if you're looking for an Edwardian-era historic story, this is worth a read through. I recommend it for fans of historic fiction YA, Upstairs Downstairs, and very light coming-of-age stories.

Very good book, fast read. Like how it's set in 1912 London times. There was no sequel to this book, which was nice because so many books are trilogy's. lots of gossip, suitable for most readers.
