Publisher's Summary

You can hunt. But do you really want to find?

Bonfire Night, November 1924

Posie Parker once failed a client. And now that client is dead.

Elsie Moncreiff, a housekeeper, has fallen from the White Cliffs of England in a howling storm. But the question is, was it bad luck, or was it murder?

Armed with just her guilty conscience and a less-than-helpful Sergeant Rainbird for company, Posie vows to get to the bottom of things. But what she finds is not at all what she was expecting.

Elsie’s place of work was the glamorous White Shaw on the English Riviera. Her employers were England’s best fashion designers, whose weekly parties are almost as famous as their clothes.

Against the backdrop of Bonfire Night, Posie must piece together what was happening down here. It seems that Elsie was not a normal housekeeper. She was up to something odd. But what?

As intruders appear, and the body count climbs, Posie realizes there’s only one man she can rely on: her fiancée, Chief Superintendent Richard Lovelace of Scotland Yard. Together, can they catch the killer before they strike again?

Murder on the White Cliffs is the eight book in the Posie Parker Mystery Series, although the novel can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

The series is out of sequence

Even though I'm enjoying the characters in this series the author seriously needs to write as an ongoing series or just stand a lone books within the series. In a earlier book she ends the story with Posey being married with two little girls. From the clue you guess who it is. The next book Posey's not married at all and has no children and in the next she is referencing a job she had in Tuscanny but that story in Tuscanny is a few books later. Make up your mind. A tad frustrating, can be too drawn out and stagnating in places. Great series but the author is losing the plot!

A bit of fun

This was a bit long. I could have done with half hour less. It’s a easy listening story. I’ve read two now and won’t read any more. I do like the narrator Clare Wille.

best yet. excellent plot, well crafted.

wonderful character development, great sub-plot, love the love story of Posy & Richard. Love the inclusion of children. I'm a fan of Clare Willie, but her American accent is dreadful and massively irritating. Sorry.

Another brilliant Posie Parker Mysery

I can't wait for the next chapter in the life of this young lady detective.
