"We shall see, Emily. You may enjoy yourself now, but eventually your looks will be gone."
And Only To Deceive by Tasha Alexander p. 175
I'm just starting this so we'll see how it goes. I actually have the next book in this series on my radar (Behind the Shattered Glass, due next month) so I'm reading this to get a feel for the series. And it had a reference to Santorini, which got my attention as well.
For Emily, the sudden proposal of Philip, Viscount Ashton, freed her from her overbearing mother, set on a grand match. When the new groom died on safari, she felt little grief. Two years later, his journals reveal surprises, a gentleman scholar and antiquities collector deeply in love with his wife.
In his beloved quiet British Museum, she finds a dangerous secret while juggling two suitors, one whose intentions may go beyond marriage. Her search to solve the crime leads to more surprises about Philip, and questions about her role as a woman in Victorian society
