There’s trouble when there is” Death at the Manor

by Katharine Schellman

#DeathattheManor #NetGalley

This is the third entry in this enjoyable historical mystery series. Note that the author has now started another series as well. She is quite good at her craft. Publisher’s Weekly gave this title a starred review.

Readers will delightedly welcome back Lily. This time she travels outside of London only to find murder in the countryside. She also is told about ghosts, meets a nice widower and solves a mystery.

Readers will enjoy the expert way that the author evokes the period, along with her ability to invigorate the locked room mystery. Historical mystery fans will surely want to read all three books, all the while hoping for a fourth.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
