Publisher's Summary

Kate Ardleigh is everything the Victorian English gentlewoman is not - outspoken, free-thinking, American...and a writer of the frowned upon penny dreadfuls. Soon after her arrival in Essex, England, a body is unearthed in a nearby archeological dig - and Kate has the chance to not only research her latest story but to begin her first case with amateur detective Sir Charles Sheridan.

Cozy

This is a cozy mystery with a charming heroine and all the things you'd wish for in a classical murder mystery.

The First Book Sets Up An Enjoyable Series

I read this cozy series years ago and remembered it as very entertaining. The Audible version narrated by Helen Johns adds to those good memories and I’m certain I will enjoy “rereading” the series. The first book spends a lot of time familiarizing the reader with Kate Ardleigh and her evolving circumstances. There is a murder(s) but it is I think secondary to the setup of the longer term characters in the series. Make a nice cup of tea and sit down to enjoy a good story. I’m looking forward to revisiting old friends.

Good but not great.

This had some interesting plot lines, even if they did end up being red herrings! I’d love to have seen the theme of unhappy servants and the risk of threat from within taken further but in general the story was pretty satisfying. None of the major characters felt totally formed or captivating but I’ll give the second in the series a go.

A wonderful listen

The storyline was thoroughly engaging throughout and the narration was perfectly matched. If you enjoy crime set in this period then I recommend this book without hesitation.
