The Blurb –
An escape to the country… ends in death.
Summer 1933. Fresh from the discovery that she has family living nearby, Kitty Underhay has packed her carpet bag, commandeered a chambermaid and set off on a visit to stately Enderley Hall. She’s looking forward to getting to know her relatives, as well as the assembled group of house guests. But when elderly Nanny Thoms is found dead at the bottom of the stairs after papers of national importance are stolen, Kitty quickly learns that Muffy the dog’s muddy paws on her hemline are the least of her problems.
Calling on ex-army captain Matthew Bryant for assistance, Kitty begins to puzzle out the mystery. And when more shocking murders follow, the stakes are raised for the daring duo as never before. Which of the guests stand to gain from the theft of the documents? And which, as the week progresses, stand to lose their lives?
A charming cozy historical murder mystery that fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss won’t be able to put down!
Today is my stop on the Murder at Enderley Hall blog tour. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – I was so pleased to read this after reading Murder at The Dolphin Hotel. This book continues one from the first one and now that Kitty knows about some relatives she sets off to meet them at the very impressive Enderley Hall.
This is a throw back to the very best detective books, a group of people gather for an event in a house and one doesn’t make it? Anyone could be the murderer but who has the motive? Kitty with a little help seeks to speak to all attendees to try and solve the mystery, but can she before anyone else dies?
An excellent read, I am loving this series. It is good to see the development of Kitty and to see her working with Matt.
