Descripción

Spring, 1909, and Lady Hardcastle, amateur sleuth and all-round eccentric, is enjoying a well-deserved rest. But a week after a trip to the cattle market, Spencer Caradine, a local farmer, turns up dead in the pub, face-down in his beef and mushroom pie. Once again, it is up to Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, to solve the case.

Armed with wit and whimsy, not to mention Florence's mean right hook, the pair set out to discover what really happened and why. Was it poison or just ill luck?

As they delve further into their investigation, they encounter a theft where nothing is stolen, a séance with a troubled ghost and an ever-increasing number of Spencer's family and friends who might just have motive for murder. One thing's for sure: Lady Hardcastle has a mystery on her hands.

    Quirky cozy. Aperfect palate cleanser for readers of heavier mystery/thrillers. ) the two main characters Flo and Lady Hardcastle are eccentric, intelligent, willing to take risks and just nosy enough to get involved in any mayhem that occurs in their otherwise quiet country village.

    Book received from NetGalley.This is a cozy historical mystery set in Edwardian Britain. The many mystery solvers are a Lady and her maid. The upper-class lady doesn't act like she's expected to, she's very no-nonsense and has a mind of her own. Her ladies maid is the same way and they both encourage each other to set the locals gossiping. This is the second book in the series and while I really want to read the first one it's not necessary to read this book. They have solved crimes before and the local police actually call them in for help when they're spread too thin. There is the main mystery of a local farmer, who wasn't well liked by his neighbors, possibly being murdered. As well as a spiritualist medium who could be a charlatan, and the local rugby club being robbed of its trophies. There were some very funny exchanges between the main character and her ladies maid, and it was interesting to see the servant being treated as almost an equal. Fans of Downton Abbey may like this series.

    I enjoyed this fun mystery. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. It falls around a older lady and her companion/servant, who end up being asked to investigate some mysterious happenings. Parts of it were fun and had me laughing out loud. And I love how they tied everything together in the end.

    Quirky rather than quaint the two caped, it is the Victorian Era, crusaders continue to provide their excellent assistance to the bobbies in Littleton Cotteral. The feisty Ms. Marplish, Lady Hardcastle, assisted by her tiny aide in full Boy Robin mode provide acerbic repartee, rudimentary but enlightened forensics and a Holmes, Nero Wolfe type denouement in this fun ti read series. Holy guacamole, can there be a prequel or three that explains their origins and their spy like activities?

    I love the camaraderie and dialogue between Lady Hardcastle and Flo. The two have had a very interesting history together of which readers are only allowed fascinating glimpses. In addition, they definitely keep up with the times: Lady Hardcastle purchases a motor car, and a telephone is soon to be installed. These two most decidedly have little to do with antimacassars and aspidistras! (I don't think their needlework is up to snuff either.)Occasionally my rational brain reminds me that the men in 1909 would not be willing to leave such investigations to mere females, then I remember that these books are meant to be fun. Thankfully there's not much in the book to be picked apart. How two characters can be so avant-garde yet the book give such a true sense of the times, I don't know, but I'm enjoying this series to bits! It's fun to smile the entire time I'm reading a book.

    Fun, cosy historical mystery. I love the Lady Hardcastle books and this was the first one i listened to instead of reading myself. I really like the narrator and will listen to the rest.

    Well written story with a few mysteries that come together in the end. Thoroughly enjoyed the yarn.
