Sarah's angst at her situation is somewhat repetitive. Also felt she was overly involved with the patient who died. This does not bode well for her future as a doctor, as mentioned in the story also. I like the authors writing style.
I read this for a Murder Mystery group - while it was a murder, it was more on the historical romance side. It did lead to a GREAT book group discussion, the time period and subject was interesting, but parts did feel like a first novel. We agreed we would read the next installment.
Really excellent start to a character-driven mystery series. If you enjoyed Sara Donati's The Gilded Hour, Wages of Sin will appeal with its heroine who is determined to be a doctor.
Very disappointing. Two stars because the mystery was actually good - the murderer was a surprise. Way too much quick anger and breathless romance form the heroine. Could have condensed it by at least 3 chapters. Better editing needed. I won't read this author again.
Looks to be the start of a promising detective series involving a woman who is study to be a physician in 19th century Scotland.
