Evelyn Christie has resigned herself to another long, boring weekend at Hessleham Hall, the home of her husband, Tommy’s, family. However, it turns out to be anything but dull when his uncle, the Earl of Northmoor, is shockingly murdered!

Evelyn must use all of her sleuthing knowledge, gained whilst she was a member of the Police force during the war, to find out who the murderer is before the bungling local police force decide the Earl was bumped off so Tommy could inherit his title.

If you enjoy the glamour of bygone eras like 1920s Downton Abbey and gentle, cozy mysteries set in the English countryside then you will love this new series.



I know I’m woefully behind the times, but I loved this cosy mystery! I thought Evelyn was a brilliant character along with her hubby Tommy. It really was Downton Abbey meets Murder, She Wrote! The whole cast of characters was fun and the mystery well-plotted with a satisfying resolution. I’ll definitely be trying to finish this series before I start Catherine’s new one!
