About the Book
A high-society murder. A spirited lady detective. Can she out-class the killer before an innocent person takes the fall?
London, 1923. Olive Belgrave needs a job. Despite her aristocratic upbringing, she’s penniless. Determined to support herself, she jumps at an unconventional job—looking into the background of her cousin’s fiancé, Alfred. He burst into the upper crust world of London’s high society, but his answers to questions about his past are decidedly vague.
Before Olive can gather more than the basics, a murder occurs at a posh party. Suddenly, every Bright Young Person in attendance is a suspect, and Olive must race to find the culprit because a sly murderer is determined to make sure Olive’s first case is her last.
Murder at Archly Manor is the first in the High Society Lady Detective series of charming historical cozy mysteries. If you like witty banter, glamorous settings, and delightful plot twists, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Sara Rosett’s series for Anglophiles and mystery lovers alike. Travel back to the Golden Age of detective fiction with Murder at Archly Manor.
ReviewWith the concerns about Alfred's true motives in marrying Violet, Olive, in need of a new profession, is quick to volunteer to check out Alfred and her Aunt agrees to pay. She has already started to collect clues, when Alfred is murdered. Her cousin Violet is the suspect and Olive's determined to help her. Violet's sister, Gwen is a sometimes reluctant helper and not a fan of Alfred from the beginning. The men who know Alfred best, from host Sebastian to Tug and Monty have interesting personalities and the story behind Alfred's friendship in Sebastian adds to the twists in the story. Lady Pamela, Thea and Muriel round out the characters.
The mystery is well-paced and Olive is a likable main character for what looks like a new series. The characters and the setting are well described to provide the feel and ambiance of 1923 London. If you enjoy British cozy mystery - or cozy mystery at all, you'll enjoy Murder at Archly Manor.
