  • Compelling, witty and lovely, all in one!

    Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC for this delightful book in exchange for an honest review. If the first sentence doesn't grab you, nothing will. From start to finish this was a clever, witty and engrossing read. Though this is the seventh book in the series, it can easily be read on its own (this is my introduction to the series). Amory and Milo's marriage has historically been shaky but over the past two years has grown deeper and deeper and, in fact, the arrival of their first child is only weeks away. So, when a stranger suddenly announces she is married to Milo Amory can't believe this woman is married to the same man she is. This novel takes place in the 1930s, the great golden era when the wealthy lived lives of luxury. When a murder occurs at a festival, everyone...except shocked. Amory, as an amateur sleuth, begins snooping around by visiting villagers, determined to discover the truth. Her pregnancy is hardly a deterrent! Along with many excellent and successful twists and turns are interwoven side stories which is a mark of a good mystery author. The stories flowed smoothly. A few unlikable characters also added to the story; in fact, it is unlikable characters which engaged me even more. The only drawback is the lack of enough descriptions of the era...reading about the specific historical bits sets the atmosphere but this is merely personal preference. This series is a happy discovery. I will be sure to read it in its entirety. It was a fun, fascinating, energetic and beguiling read punctuated with just enough wit and humour. The ending was beautifully done and was satisfying.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • my first Amory Ames story

    I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an advance reader copy of this story. A Deception At Thornecrest, by Ashley Weaver, is available at booksellers on 9-8-2020. Deception is book 7 in An Amory Ames Mystery series. I've so enjoyed this story that I'm now going looking for the previous books. I'm very interested in Amory and Milo and their strange relationship. I thought the plot was good and the writing style reminded me of an episode of Downton Abbey. The prose is very Darling and My Love, proper all the same. It's very English and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. #ADeceptionAtThornecrest #AmoryAmesMystery #AshleyWeaver #Netgalley #MinotaurBooks #StMartin'sPress
