  • Mystery at a house party in Victorian England

    I enjoyed this book so much! I was drawn to it because of the late Victorian time period, with aristocracy and mystery at a house party held at a country estate. It reminded me a little of Agatha Christie's mysteries, except instead of Hercule Poirot twirling his mustache, we have Frances, Lady Harleigh, a widowed American countess who is extremely observant. Her love interest is George, the brother of the man who is hosting the house party. George and Frances have investigated other mysteries together in the first two books of the series. Soon after everyone arrives, a series of dangerous accidents begins, affecting both staff and guests. Frances and George are watching everyone and everything as the injuries mount. Other than that, Frances also has to deal with her difficult mother, who has come for the wedding of Lily, her youngest daughter, which will happen sooner than was planned. Although this is the third book in the series and the first I've read, it was fine as a standalone. I am planning on reading the first two books, and any others in this series. It was a comfortable, entertaining read with some genuine suspense and humor. I loved the ending - it left me smiling.

  • Murder at The Country House

    This is somewhat of a classical British Country House murder in a cozy sense. This is the third book in the series and the first that I have read. I will not only be reading future episodes but will be going back to read the two I have missed. While the setting is classical, our heroine is quite modern in her desire to be an active part of her husband's life and not subservient to anyone. The murder investigation is quite complicated. The final revelation of all the aspects of the crimes was surprising. This was a very good mystery. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

  • Great!

    cosy-mystery, turn-of-20th-century, England, landed-gentry, amateur-sleuth What a charming and complex delight! Frances' first marriage was awful except for her now eight year old daughter, but she now has a man she shares love with and hopes to marry as soon as her younger sister's hurried wedding is accomplished. For which reason they are out in the country, both to have Lily's wedding away from the gossips and to minimize their mother's histrionics. All would have been well, but then arranged mishaps began happening and escalating. Time for Frances and George to get sleuthing in earnest. Great characters well drawn and plenty of misdirections and red herrings to keep me reading straight through to the end. Loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!
