Publisher's Summary

Highly sought-after cook Kat Holloway takes a position in a Mayfair mansion and soon finds herself immersed in the odd household of Lord Rankin. Kat is fine with the family's eccentricities as long as they stay away from her kitchen, but trouble finds its way below stairs when her assistant is murdered.
Afraid for her life, Kat turns to the mysterious Daniel McAdam for help. Daniel takes a position in the house as a footman and stand-in valet so that he can investigate covertly, but Kat cooks up a suspect list of her own. Together, they uncover crime in places low and high - including a plot that may threaten even Queen Victoria herself.

Terrific book. I can't wait for the next one. I hope there will be a next one. Death Below Stairs is an interesting mystery, filled with rich descriptions and terrific characters make for a very enjoyable listen. Love the narrator her performance was perfection. I will look for more books from both the author and narrator.

Another winning series from Jennifer Ashley

Jennifer Ashley has written a new series placed in Victorian England. Kat Holloway is a cook with her own secrets. Daniel McAdam is a mysterious man who looks after her safety. And more. The murder victim is one of the staff. Soon, she and Daniel discover a tangled web of deceit.

Loved the mysteries as well as the details of life in England of the upper and lower classes. And, oh the descriptions of the food! It's hard to believe people routinely ate so much food daily. I enjoyed the building romance between Kat & Daniel. And James is delightful. I hope we will find out much more about Daniel in the next book.

The worst part of the book? Having to wait until July this year for Book 2, Scandal Above Stairs.

My recommendation? For those who enjoy historical mysteries I think you'll like this series.

NOTE: I suggest reading the prequel, A Soupcon of Poison, before this book. In this novella there are more depth about Kat, her secrets, and how she became a cook. We also meet Daniel and learn a little about he and James.
