Black Cats and Butlers: Book 1 (Rose Raventhorpe Investigates) Kindle Edition
The Clockwork Sparrow meets Downton Abbey
When Rose Raventhorpe's beloved butler is found (gasp!) murdered in the hallway of her own house, she's determined to uncover the culprit. Especially since he's the third butler to die in a week!
Rose's investigation leads her on a journey into a hidden world of grave robbers and duelling butlers, flamboyant magicians and the city's ancient feline guardians.
Knives aren't just for cutting cucumber sandwiches, you know . . .
