I found it was predictable as to who was up to what, though I did't pick up on all tge clues! Also rather slow going, but still okay for a quiet suday afternoon or holiday read.

It just reaffirms to me how brilliantly Agatha Christie did itReviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2015
Similar in some respects to 'The Problem at Two Tithes' by Clara Benson. Sedgwick Court is another very lightweight novel, set in a similar period, but written I think by a modern writer (or at least I couldn't see anything to the contrary). The heroine amateur sleuth, Rose Simpson, I found rather irritating and unbelievable, as I think was the fact that she's a shop girl who's almost engaged to the young Earl Belvedere, owner of Sedgwick Court. I somehow couldn't believe this would have happened at that time. As for the plot, all a bit silly, with almost none of the guests at the house over this particular weekend being who they pretended to be. I'd worked that out for myself when I was about a third-way through the book. It was glaringly obvious. I hadn't actually worked out who the murderer was, but by the time it was revealed I hardly cared, and his motives for the killing seemed silly beyond words. It just reaffirms to me how brilliantly Agatha Christie did it!

Best of the series so far.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 January 2015
The Rose Simpson Mysteries are going from strength to strength. I particularly loved the setting of this, the third in the series, I could imagine Sedgwick Court so well in my mind. We see the reintroduction of some characters from previous books, plus some new ones, the descriptions of which I thoroughly enjoyed. A good, solid plot as always, with twists and turns, I couldn't work out who did it or why, but it all made sense at the end. A lovely light read and a real page turner – at one point I inadvertently went ahead of myself on my kindle and was gutted when I thought something had been given away. Keep writing Ms Addison, I want to know what happens to Rose!

Gentle murder mysteryReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 July 2020
Enjoyed the plot, I had the characters solved quite early on but it didn't spoil it for me. The murderer turned out to be the one I thought it was.😊
Rose Simpson reviewReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 December 2014
Really good story line got me guessing until the end especially with the twist in the plot, I have read all three books and the writer has gone from strength to strength, this would not look out of place for a slot on itv 3, just the kind of thing for a Sunday afternoon or evening. Hope Rose and the earl marry, its such a sweet story. Once again congratulations to Margaret Addison, well worth a read.

good old fashioned storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 June 2020
Good story if you like old fashioned murder mysteries. The era is entertaining like Downton. good twists.
