Publisher's Summary

December 1953
Hugo Hawksworth is on the tail of rogue Cold War agents at a top-secret government facility, while back home at Selchester Castle they're awaiting the arrival of the new earl - an American, the long-lost son of the murdered Lord Selchester.
The town of Selchester, rich in scandal and gossip, is unsure what to make of the earl or his teenage daughters, but they know that his sharp-tongued half-sister, Lady Sonia, furious at being deprived of her inheritance, won't be a merry guest over Christmas.
The new Lord Selchester can cope with the strangeness of English country life, but he hadn't expected stolen paintings - or a body in the hothouse.
What's the link between Hugo's investigations and the suspicious goings-on in the town and at the castle? And will he and his allies get to the heart of the mystery before the murderer gets to them?

Cozy Mystery

I enjoyed Book 2 much more than Book 1 because I didn’t feel so lost this time! I have trouble keeping track of many characters but in this case I actually remembered who was who from the first instalment and the introduction of new characters didn’t confuse me!

I’m searching for a new series to get hooked on and as the story unfolded I thought I could really get attached to Selchester; I found the entire thing very charming and entertaining.

Sadly, the author died a few months ago so my search for a cozy mystery anthology continues.

English murder mystery with cold-war ties

Very well read English murder mystery, with political and cold war complications. Lots of English upper class and village characters, and a well-plotted mystery. You will have to read Book 1, to really enjoy this story.
