Hope I can find more series like this one - a page turner

I've read all the books so far in this series. I really like the character of Dr Thomas Silkstone and his medical and deductive skills. The author puts a lot of effort in research for the backgrounds of her stories.
I was disappointed in this book however. it's becoming more like a soap opera.
I still find the character of Lady Lydia to be weak and unlikable. She does not seem to be a worthy match to her suitor Dr Silkstone and one wonders why he bothers to go to so much trouble on her behalf.
One thing that bugged me throughout the book was that
the asylum where Lydia was kept is at first referred to as "Bethlam" and later on it's called "Bedlam" without explanation. I had heard of Bedlam before but didn't realize it was an alternate name for Bethlam.
Lake the preceding book, this one also ends on a cliffhanger, so I'll likely read it when it becomes available. I keep hoping that the author will do something with Lydia's character to make her more of an even match with Thomas!
