  • Interesting

    1930s, espionage, historical-novel, historical-research, murder, fascists**** These books are fiction, but based on true events and Fellowes includes historical notes at the end of each book. The time is during the rise of the Nazis and all that entailed. Newly wed Louisa is in steno training and her husband is a DS at The Met in London when she is tapped by the espionage agent known to her to join the Mitfords (her former employer) on a three-week European cruise as a lady's maid because of their involvement in fascist enterprises. While on the cruise there is the predictable murder and that sets things up for the later trial. It is fast-paced and riveting and highlights the issues of fascism as well as the role of women and marriage in the 1930s. Very interesting! I requested and received a free ebook copy from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley.

  • Extraordinarily Wonderful!

    What a prologue! Jessica Fellowes has a gift with words...they seem to flow seamlessly. Her books aren't in the realm of ordinary and this, her fourth in the Mitford Murders series, is my favourite so far. All you require is hot cocoa or tea and a toasty corner and immerse yourself. We can all use more of that these days. Louisa and Guy Sullivan are newlyweds when Louisa decides to join the Mitfords on a three-week cruise as a lady's maid. She is independent and could use the generous salary as well as relaxation. Well, she doesn't exactly relax...who could with criminals aboard the ship with no escape? As an amateur sleuth she inveigles, interviews and observes not only the Mitfords but the staff and other fellow travelers. The twisty secrets are brilliant and unexpected which I love. There is a lot to gush about but spoiling is awful. Historical Fiction fans ought to enjoy this. Reading the series in order would benefit but is not crucial. The characters are well settled, if you know what I mean, in their own groove. My sincere thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this enthralling book. Much appreciated.

    Thanks for your feedback!
