Publisher's Summary

Midnight treasure hunts, fancy-dress parties, and a blue-blooded murder...

November, 1923. Olive’s school chum Gigi invites Olive to London because Gigi’s dotty grandmother fears for her life - or so she’s said to Gigi. However, Olive is surprised to find that the dowager is far from muddled. The sharp and imperious matriarch refuses to admit to her worries and sends Olive on her way.

Without a client or case, Olive is swept into the glittering lifestyle of the “fast set” and their decadent excess. But then, among the cocktails and champagne, a murderer strikes during a frivolous party game, and Olive realizes the dowager’s fears were well-founded. 

Can Olive unmask the upper crust culprit before the party’s over for a bright, young person?

An Old Money Murder in Mayfair is the fifth installment in the popular High Society Lady Detective series from USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett. Join Olive and her dapper sleuthing partner Jasper, as they navigate the extravagant parties of the Bright Young People as well as their own budding relationship.

not as well developed

I enjoyed this book and it was a good addition to the series, I'm also thankful for the development at the end. but in general this book felt rushed and wasn't as well developed as a story as others have been.

A favorite series

After acquiring this latest book in the Olive and Jasper series, I re-listened to all of the previous books. I enjoyed each one as much the second time as I did the first. For me, that is the sign of a really good book. I simply inhaled this book. I love the characters, the puzzles and the solutions as well as the narration. I can’t wait for the next book.

Relaxing read

This was a nice relaxing read. Yes it is a murder mystery but there was no stress in reading it. I just enjoyed the book as the clues unfolded.

Good

I liked this book, as with all other books in this series. The protagonist is likeable and intelligent. The romantic interest is the same. I really like the details that go into the story. Only thing that could make it better were if the story were longer and more intricate! Looking forward to more in the series.

Fun Mystery

Although I don't like this series as much as Sara Rosett's other series this is still very entertaining. The same narrator for all but in this series Klett is a little harder to understand. Will look forward to the next book by Sara Rosett.

Such a fun roaring twenties cozy mystery !

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. "An Old Money Murder in Mayfair" is very well written with subtle clues and extra diversions that cause you to keep changing your mind about who did it. Olive is sensible, likable and efficient. I appreciate the fact that while the setting of England in the 1920s with all it's colloquialism, etiquette, fashion and customs are described, they remain a backdrop to the story rather than becoming the focal point. The narration is excellent and establishes the atmosphere of the upper class London home the story is supposed to take place in in an incredible way. Looking forward to #6 with great anticipation!

Great series!

I really love this series and hope there will be many more books. Unlike many other mysteries, this one doesn’t rely on the main characters deliberately or stupidly putting themselves in danger in every book, and the romance is simply sweet, rather than overly dramatic.
