Wedlock, her second book, was published in 2009, and detailed the abusive second marriage of Mary Eleanor Bowes, Countess of Strathmore, great-great-great-great-grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II. Bowes' second husband, an Irish soldier who conned her into matrimony and then pursued her after their separation, is said to have inspired Thackeray's The Luck of Barry Lyndon. The Washington Post columnist Jonathan Yardley stated that Moore “writes lively and literate prose... She has done a heroic amount of research, bringing her characters to life with singular verisimilitude and portraying 18th-century courtship and marriage in full detail, never forgetting that although Mary Eleanor Bowes was uncommonly privileged and wealthy, at root her lot was that of every other woman of her day.” Describing the book as “meticulously researched”, The Guardian's Katie Toms believed it was “ripe for film adaptation.” Wedlock was also reviewed by The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, and The New York Times, among others. The book was featured on Channel 4's book club in 2010, and received a sales boost.
