I just love the plot in all these books. The way they are written and the terminology is just a joy to read. Just when you think you know who did it in this story you suddenly find you don't. A really good read. All the characters are in their own way quite endearing and the way the main characters work with the police is really entertaining. I just wish there were lots more of these books.
I really like this series. I enjoy the way the two main characters of Lady Hardcastle and her maid Flo interact and how their previous career as spies is gradually revealed throughout the books. So glad I found these.
An intriguing cozy, full of wonderful, whimsical characters. Lady Hardcastle has been asked a favour of from a friend. The friend's kitchen has burned down, just when she was playing hostess to a visiting film troupe. Lady Hardcastle instantly obliges, and with the help of her capable ladies maid Florence Armstrong, she makes the visitors welcome. Until one by one they are murdered. In the same way that their onscreen characters are killed. Our amateur sleuths then spring into action, but are perplexed by the murders. Nothing here is as it seems, everyone can kind of account for their whereabouts during the murders, or can they? This is a delightful book, the first of this authors that I have read. It is the fourth book in the series and while the reader would benefit from reading the other books first, to get a bit more background of the characters, it's not really necessary. I recommend this book to all lovers of lighthearted crime novels. My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I love this series and regularly check to see if there is anything new available. Well written - I don't find constant issues with spelling, punctuation and grammar as I do with many of the other ebooks available on Amazon. Dialogue flows well and great premise for a series.
I am still reading it (in my spare time) but I find it easy to read, enjoyable and a story one can relax with. I like too, the way the two heroines care for each other. Keep writing more of them. Thank you
