A Question of Honor by Charles Todd
As Bess looks for the murder she asks: Could it be the officer who seems so gentle and kind? Could it really be the officer that compassionately accompanied a grieving mother to England whose daughter died? Could it be one of the children that a family had taken in as charges and children that the family treated cruelly?
Bess is her headstrong self as always much to the unhappiness of Simon. Good old Simon is always there for Bess.
A QUESTION OF HONOR is a typical Bess Crawford mystery with a lot of military goings on, but Mr. Todd always makes the murderer a surprise. :) The military information got a bit tedious, the storyline was ok, and the characters and scenes were described well, but A QUESTION OF HONOR wasn't my favorite Charles Todd book. It dragged on a bit. 3/5
This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
