I do agree it's not as good as the others. I've always found Rose to be a bit of a cipher and cedric even more so. You never really get to know her and in this book she's not very likable. A bit of a Nancy Drew.
It's also true I'd like the other characters to be fleshed out more, I want to care and be interested in them, even so they are fleshed out more than Rose and Cedric.
I have enjoyed the other books and have bought them when they come our although with some of the same reservations as noted above.

Suspect Cedric and Rose's problems are a red herring - can't wait to find out what happensReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 October 2017
I think Cedric and Rose will stay together - Margaret Addison is the mistress of red herrings and twists, and I suspect things aren't as they seem. The best mystery so far, didn't see the twist coming at the end.

A bit less is sometimes much more...Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 May 2018
As a classic “country house” mystery fan I came across Murder in the Folly by chance without being familiar with previous Rose Simpson books. After finishing it, I checked my immediate impressions with the reviews of the very first book in the series (Murder at Ashgrove House). I admit I chose the least favourable ones and couldn’t help but agree with them. It is too repetitive, which applies to events and dialogues as well as to the language/vocabulary. The language is sometimes quite strange as if the author was trying to make it sound closer to that used some 90 years ago (or is it just the absence of proofreading?) Moreover, it is a country house mystery set in the early 1930s written in 2017 by an author who doesn’t seem to care much about class issues then and now. Because of this – just one more thing - let’s hope the author won’t make things worse in the future by spoiling the Cedric – Rose relationship by unnecessary ‘interventions’ or artificially plotted conflicts.
Shakespearean Folly?Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 November 2017
Superb characters, twisted into a great mystery. I felt Rose was a little wish washy in parts but she came through, as expected, in the end. The exchange and underlying "scandal" between Cedric and one of the Sedgwick Players was too vague to Raise the issue with Rose and I feel she would have addressed this immediately. I do hope this is not going to rock their marriage, Rose is better than that!

Country house mysteryReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 October 2018
Me and my friends love Rose Simpson but we would never accept an invitation to her country pile. Murder lurks in every garden feature. Charming characters, beautiful scenery, dastardly deeds, with Rose beating the constabularly to the culprit. A cosy read.
