あらすじ・解説

Downton Abbey...with murder and intrigue!

Evelyn Christie has resigned herself to another long, boring weekend at Hessleham Hall, the home of her husband, Tommy's, family. However, it turns out to be anything but dull when his uncle, the Earl of Northmoor, is shockingly murdered! 

Evelyn must use all of her sleuthing knowledge, gained whilst she was a member of the Police force during the war, to find out who the murderer is before the bungling local police force decide the Earl was bumped off so Tommy could inherit his title.

If you enjoy the glamour of bygone eras like 1920s Downton Abbey and gentle, cozy mysteries set in the English countryside, then you will love this new series.

A nice escape with a whodunit mystery

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and audio production. I enjoyed the actress who read the audio book to us and thought that the book set a nice stage and drew me into the story at the beginning. I found myself trying to solve the mystery before the end of the story and 2nd guessed myself a few times. Well done. I will definitely be reading more books in this series.

Everyone needs a therapist!

The protagonists and their staff seem to be the only ones that think clearly or have morals that show respect for anyone including themselves. I’ve never heard so much strange reasoning (or lack thereof) in other light mysteries. This is a very strange book and is hard to follow. Potential motives are buried amidst a bunch of people that have nothing in common, hate each other, and have secrets that should’ve just stayed buried. The whole story leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I’ll give the second book in the series a try to see if the author got all this weird stuff out of her system in order to get the protagonists in the position she wanted them for future stories.

Entertaining

This is a fine book with an interesting mystery. My only complaint is that the author occasionally over explains things, as though we won’t get the point without telling us what a conversation, facial expression, tone, or thought means, etc. Hopefully she’ll learn to trust readers in her future books and do more showing than telling. The narration was very good.

Delightful Classic Cozy

This was my first experience with Catherine Coles' work and I enjoyed it. She has written a cozy mystery that is set in the English countryside, amid the elegance of a bygone era, and added an inspiring love story between Tommy and his wife Evelyn, the amateur sleuth. I recommend this story to others who enjoy cozy mysteries. Alex Lee's narration is great adding an extra layer of entertainment to the story. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Agatha Christie meets Downton Abbey

This is an entertaining listen full of colorful (and devious) characters, luxurious manor pursuits, and a classic whodunnit. The story is well-paced and the world of the manor thoroughly drawn. The narration is excellent. I look forward to listening to number 2!

Story ok

Story is ok, quite a good plot. Did not like that the narrator though! Poor reading, emphasis on all the wrong places, she tried far to hard to speak in "upper class" English and go it wrong in my view!🤔 I hope the next audio book with these characters has a different person reading it, to sound more natural and easier to listen too.

Murder at the Manor

A good story and fun to listen to. But the narrator, although very clear and concise , sounds as if lecturing five year olds. The clipped upper class accent was fair enough and the characters good. But it didn't flow or feel natural. A bit more relaxed next time maybe.
