Featherweight listening, but still fun!
In a way this is a cozy mystery version of Upstairs, Downstairs. It involves Hazel, the wealthy widow crime writer who lives in a mansion, and considers her staff to be her friends. She gets involved in a murder that occurs in another wealthy home, where there are more traditional lines of demarcation between staff and family.
When Doris (a maid in the wealthy Wakefield household and friend of Hazel’s maid) mysteriously falls from a window, Hazel realizes it was murder, not an accident. So she undertakes, with the flimsiest of excuses (doing “research” for a new book) to invite herself into the house to look for clues. She works closely with Inspector Gibson to try to solve the mystery (and leaves the reader wondering if there will be budding romance). There are plenty of suspects.
I think you might read this book because it is light, a quick getaway from heavier things in life—knowing it won’t be a huge challenge to work out the whodunnit part. But the narration is nice, it is a fun listen, and a pleasant way to spend a few hours. Recommend for cozy lovers.
