Murder at the Mansions (1920s High Society Lady Detective Mystery Book 7)
South Regent Mansions has all the modern conveniences . . . including murder
London, February, 1924. Discreet sleuth for the high society set, Olive Belgrave is delighted with her new flat at South Regent Mansions where she’s made several friends, including the modern career woman, Minerva, who draws a popular cartoon about a flapper for a London newspaper.
But then Minerva comes to Olive for help after catching a glimpse of a disturbing sight—a dead body. At least, that’s what Minerva thought she saw, but there’s not a dead body anywhere in the posh building, and the residents are continuing with their lives as they normally do. Is Minerva seeing things? Is she barmy? Or is there a more sinister explanation?
To help restore Minerva’s peace of mind, Olive investigates her neighbors. They include: society’s “it” girl of the moment, an accountant with a fondness for gadgets, a snooty society matron, and a school teacher turned bridge instructor. Olive uncovers rivalries, clandestine affairs, and hidden jealousies. With dashing Jasper at her side, Olive must discover whose secret is worth killing for.
If you haven’t discovered this series yet, then I cannot encourage you enough to go and check it out! I especially love the audio book narrated by Elizabeth Klett. In fact, this is one of the few series that I save my Audible credits for. She really nails the different characters and her voice is engaging but soothing at the same time. Not to mention the fact that the whole thing is beautifully written with great dialogue and a fabulous mystery!
If you love a cozy mystery, definitely check this one out in the format you prefer!
