I really liked reading this book. This is the first in the series featuring Olive, an impoverished lady who needs a job. Unable to get a position, she ends up investigating a person on behalf of a family member and a murder mystery unfolds that has to be solved. The author has obviously researched the period well and I get the feeling that she enjoyed writing this book.
Enjoyable cosy read, but there was one point that grated.......young women of this class would not call their mothers “Mum”. It would be Mummy, Mother or at a pinch Mums, but never “Mum”. Otherwise, nice light fun read!
