    Flora and her husband are wonderful characters.

    I enjoyed the first two Flora Maguire Mysteries, Flora’s Secret and Betrayal at Cleve Abbey and have also enjoyed the most recent one in the series, A Knightsbridge Scandal by talented novelist Anita Davison, With her delightful husband Bunny’s encouragement, Flora Harrington is staying with her natural father. It is a year since Flora has seen him, since she found out that her father is William Osborne, wealthy brother of a countess and a secretary at the Foreign Office. Events in Serbia and Serbian spies in London are keeping William busy, but he finds time to take Flora to the theatre. Before they leave, Flora waits for him in a hansom cab. Although the weather is cold, she sees Arthur Crabbe, who also works at the foreign office, wearing a shirt and trousers, escort a warmly dressed woman out of Prince Albert Mansions, near Hyde Park, where William has a luxurious apartment. The woman’s parting words are: ‘Unless I get what I want, you may well see me again.” When Flora and William return, the body of a young woman has been discovered in an alley next to the mansions. Inspector Maddox warns Flora not to meddle in police business but Flora is curious and one thing leads to another. When she suspects the victim was a member of a suffragette group she attends a meeting. She discovers the murdered woman’s identity and continues to investigate. I congratulate Davison on the twists and turns in A Knightsbridge Scandal, which culminated in finding out ‘Who Done It’. Each of the Davison’s novels sweep me back into times past.. William’s flat “filled with pristine furniture in pale wood, pastel-painted walls, polished gilt mirrors, crystal chandeliers, and the sculptures and art work William had brought back from his travels abroad,” Grocers with “counters piled high with Christmas puddings and mince pies, for those without resident cooks, who had been preparing since November. Handmade chocolates, marzipan fruits and humbugs piled into baskets everywhere. Harrods with its series of halls like Aladdin’s cave and Mr Liberty’s store in which there are unusual items from Asia, China, Egypt, Morocco and other countries. I look forward to reading the next novel in the series.

    Flora's Third Outing is a Winner

    Flora, in her third mystery outing, is in London to relax, but of course a body is found and she must investigate as the intrepid amateur sleuth she is. 1903's London comes to life, as well as the struggling women's movement, in Ms. Davison's elegant prose. This is a series mystery lovers won't want to miss.

    Great story, with lots of plot twists

    The third book in the series is just as good, if not better, than the first two books. Great story, with lots of plot twists to keep you guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed the period details that Anita Davison writes so well. She captures the era so the reader is immersed in the place and time the story is set. Highly recommend.
