    Love, Mayhem and Murder

    The Buxton Chronicles by Victoria Chatham 27/5/2017 Book One Cold Gold I enjoyed each of the three novels in The Buxtorn Chronicles by talented novelist Ms Chatham. Each volume has a large cast of interesting characters, good, bad and in between, whom I enjoyed getting to know. Book One, Gold, Gold, swept me back to California during the gold rush. I sympathised with Lady Serena Buxton from the moment she arrived in Cold, Creek, in March 1907, when she knew she should have telegraphed her husband before she left San Francisco. When Lady Serrena reached Cold Creek it was so bitterly cold that she wished her husband’s gold mine was in a warm place. At the hotel where Randolf, Lord Buxton rented a room, she found out that he was mssing. After he went to the mine a week ago, the sheriff couldn’t trace him. He was helpful but not only his deputy, Stiles, is hostile for no apparent reason so is King, the manager of Randolph’s mine. When I finished Gold, Gold I really looked forward to reading the next novel in the Buxton Chronicles. Book Two On Borrowed Time Potential murder and mayhem and romance captured my attention at the beginning of On Borrowed Time. Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye to characters at the end of a novel, so I was delighted to become reunited with Serena and Randolph, Lord and Lady Buxton. As she proved in Gold, Gold, courageous, resourceful Serena loves her husband. When Pinkerton Agent, Stuart Mongomery, comes to England to ask for help she refuses to be parted from her husband while he is in America. Stuart explains there were six investors in an airline company owned by Hiram R. Stillwater. When an investor dies his share in the company is inherited by the other members. Four of them are dead. Only Stillwater and Sir Hilary have survived. The wife of one of the deceased men has employed Stuart to investigatge his When Randolph and Serena arrive in America they meet their acquaintance, Hilary Blenkinsop, who designs aircraft for Stillman’s company, and unscrupulous Stiles in charge of security, but if murders have been commited is he or someone else guilty? A well-plotted novel with strong themes and a twist in the tale. Book Three Shell Shocked Buxton Hall, March 1918 Buxton Hall has been requisitioned for men wounded in battle during the First World War. Lord Randolph is on active servicecc His wife, Lady Serena, is short of space to accommodate casualties of war and athe hospital in her stately home is short-staffed. Ms Chatham’s excellent reconstruction of the challenges in the hospital and those who work in it absorbed me. I cared about all of the characters. I always enjoy her descriptions of places. For example. “What had once been an elegant ballroom with polished oak floor, mahogany panelling, exquisite chandeliers and walls hung with family portrains is now a busy hospital ward.” I hope Ms.Chatham plans to write more novels about the intrepid couple, Lord and Lady Buxtonn who are devoted to each other.
