Death at a Country Mansion
A Smart British Mystery with a Surprising Twist
by Louise R. Innes
I tend to enjoy mysteries set in England. Sometimes I am looking for something by Ann Cleeves or Anne Perry or Susie Steiner or Peter Lovesey. Other times, I am looking for a more cozy mystery, the sort that offers a relaxing read for a troubling time. This title suits that latter category.
This is the first in what I think will be a new series. It is set in a small British town and features an amateur detective who in her more regular life is a hair stylist. She heeds to call to solve the case of her best friend’s mother, a well known opera star, who is murdered.
This book has interesting characters, murder, an art thief and a bit of romance. Definitely just what the cozy reader craves!
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
