I was actually seduced by the cover, which made it look like something that would suit my mood which it did, so, good accurate cover design, somebody.I enjoyed it, reading it in one long evening on my Kindle, but the writing wasn t exactly Dorothy Sayers level The author wrangled a large cast of characters through the use of third person multiple viewpoint, but her net went wide than deep I wanted interiority, interesting thoughts and opinions, telling detail I d call the prose, hm, workmanl [...]

    6. That sneaky devil, Suggests for You, was spot on with this book I enjoyed myself immensely reading the story Blurbed as with a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie, and a nod to Le Care it doesn t disappoint I m already ordering book 2 Edmondson leaves the reader wanting and she hints at a deeper mysteries in lead characters, a potential love interest, and also to come on the Earl Selchester s machinations which have left turmoil in the wake of his death Well done I m hooked, M [...]

    9. This was a great English mystery My second book to read by this author, and I have liked them both a lot There were similarities between it and The Frozen Lake, though Time will tell with reading of others by her if it s her formula or if just a coincidence It s somewhat of a Clue type mystery where you know the person is dead, but the who, where, when with what are trying to be answered Obviously, a much detailed story surrounding it with a large dash of family dramas thrown in Recommended Loo [...]
