5 STARS ***** - J. New's detective is intriguing, nor does she let others' concerns about what's proper for a young lady to be involved in dissuade her from sinking her teeth into a puzzle or mystery. I love classic British detective novels and had a grand time watching as Ella and Sir Albert parsed through their clues and interviewed suspects. New's story is brimming with red herrings, secret passages, and enough English meals to stir the appetite of any reader.
And don't let the fact that this is the second book of the series keep you from reading it. New gives just enough background to allow this book to be read on its own, without giving spoilers that would ruin the first book (An Accidental Murder), should you decide to backtrack after reading this one. If you enjoy British sleuth mysteries as much as I do, you probably will be seriously considering doing just that.
The Curse of Arundel Hall: A Yellow Cottage Vintage Mystery, Book 2 is highly recommended. - Jack Magnus for Readers Favorite.
