So good, I read most of the day which is very unusual and not good for getting my work done.

I've fallen for Lina Townend. Author Judith Cutler has created a flawed and charming young woman that I would love to mother, and that's something to write home about, since my maternal instincts normally only kick in with the furred and feathered. Passed around from one foster home to another "like a parcel" as she puts it, Lina is fighting against low self esteem and a tendency to self harm. A miracle occurred when she and Griff, an older gay man met. Griff took the time to see how valuable this young woman is, and he's taken her under his wing. He's teaching her everything he knows about dealing in and restoring antiques. He's working with her to better herself and to increase her vocabulary, and he's definitely working on Lina's low opinion of herself. Under his care, Lina is beginning to blossom, and it truly is wonderful to see.

The book is written in Lina's voice, and I can find myself engrossed in her investigation of the mystery, laughing at her turn of phrase, or wanting to wrap her up in a big hug. Watching the policeman slowly realize what a treasure she is is worth reading the entire book, but there's much more to Silver Guilt than that. Lina is the illegitimate daughter of the totally eccentric and almost completely batty Lord Elham who's given over his stately mansion to a trust to run, provided that he gets to live in one wing of the house. And if you won't tell anyone that he squirreled away loads of priceless antiques from the rest of the house into his wing, I won't either.

As you can see, I love the characters-- which isn't all that unusual for me when reading a book written by Judith Cutler-- but the mystery is top notch as well. In trying to deduce what's happening to the silver pieces disappearing from Elham's house to trying to keep an eye on Lina's new boyfriend, there's plenty of skullduggery going on... and more than a few pearls of wisdom about antiques to be found, too. If you love antiques, intriguing mysteries, and excellent characterization, I'd love for you to meet Lina Townend.

Another book by this author that I really enjoyed. Her books are light, enjoyable bedtime reading that help me wind down after busy days. I have been known to read a book between bedtime and lights out but do suffer the next day.

A must read for mystery lovers!

Evelina "Lina" Townend was introduced by her senior business partner Griff to a dealer in silver antiques. When the dealer encounters a problem with an upcoming show, Griff suggests that Lina take the place of the dealer's assistant for the experience.

However, Lina finds herself at the center of a fuss which threatens her and Griff's reputation as dealer. The silver dealers show herself to be far from the lady that her birth would suggest she was.

In addition it seems that someone is stealing from the stately home which was once Lina's father's property. Because it is now in trust a fine arts expert in the police force with connections to English Heritage starts to look around.

The characters are interesting and the plot, while not overwhelmingly good has enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested.

Read by Diana Bishop, a favorite for Cutler's books. About 7 hours and 20 minutes which makes it considerably shorter than the previous book in the series, Drawing the Line. The next book in the series is Ring of Guilt.
