  • Loved the mystery and beauty of Edwardian England

    It is for this reason that I was delighted to be offered the chance to read a book that not only has a dead body (WOO HOO!! Order is restored!!) but also that brilliant back drop of Edwardian England. Anita really brings the era to life in her writing, I could easily have walking the halls of Cleeve Abbey, wandering over the rolling fields with my gentleman on my arm! I loved the mystery and the beauty that Anita brought to her book, Flora Maguire is a superb character and she now has a firm fan in me! I cannot wait for the next instalment!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A page turner I couldn't put down until the end.

    Bunny and Flora, an amateur sleuth, met in the prequel, Murder on the Mesopotamia, while on a voyage from New York to England. In Betrayal at Cleeve Abbey, the delightful couple have not been married for long when news arrives that Flora’s father is dead. With Bunny’s sympathy and support Flora battles to find out the truth about her father, Riordan’s death, which she suspects is due to unnatural circumstances. Flora is also determined to find out where Lily, her mother is buried so that Riordan can be laid to rest beside her. Eventually, it seems there is a possibility that Lily is alive. A difficult mother-in-law, a pink corset, a missing maid, violent illness after the summer fete, an uncooperative doctor and much more combine to interest the reader in Betrayal at Cleeve Abbey. Davison brings all the characters to life, Lord Vaughan the owner of Cleeve Abbey, his wife, son, daughter and brother-in-law, the staff, the owner of a brewery and a pushy widow, to name a few. The author has captured the early 19th century in her descriptions of people and places, trams and the kitchen garden. The protagonists act and speak according to the early 20th century in which the novel is set. This is a satisfying novel to savour. I look forward to reading more novels in the series.

  • A Gripping Story with Shocking Secrets

    Flora returns to the place where she grew up when she hears of her father's mysterious death. Family secrets, murder and more follow. This is my favorite Flora mystery, with earthy details and shocking family drama revealed.

    Thanks for your feedback!
