The Anatomist's Wife, by Anna Lee Huber
Keira, Lady Darby, a widow living on the edges of polite society after her reluctant involvement in her husband's efforts to dissect and illustrate the human body, and Sebastian Gage, a gentleman inquiry agent, following in his father's footsteps, together try to solve a country manor mystery on Keira's sister's estate in Scotland. There's plenty to quibble about, but generally it's a quick, enjoyable read with central characters to root for.
