This program includes a bonus interview with the author.
Set amid the legendary Mitford household, The Mitford Murders is a thrilling golden age-style mystery audiobook, based on a real unsolved murder, by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times best-selling Downton Abbey books.
It's 1920, and Louisa Cannon dreams of escaping her life of poverty in London.
Louisa's salvation is a position within the Mitford household at Asthall Manor, in the Oxfordshire countryside. There she will become nursemaid, chaperone, and confidante to the Mitford sisters, especially 16-year-old Nancy, an acerbic, bright young woman in love with stories. But then a nurse - Florence Nightingale Shore, goddaughter of her famous namesake - is killed on a train in broad daylight, and Louisa and Nancy find themselves entangled in the crimes of a murderer who will do anything to hide their secret....
Based on an unsolved crime and written by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times best-selling Downton Abbey companion books, The Mitford Murders is the perfect new audio obsession for fans of classic murder mysteries.

Expected much, very disappointed
Would you try another book from Jessica Fellowes and/or Rachel Atkins?
What could Jessica Fellowes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Not made it so silly.
Which scene was your favorite?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mitford Murders?
I would have scrapped it and given the idea to a better writer.
Any additional comments?
I was so excited to read/listen to a mystery story incorporating the Mitford family, especially Nancy Mitford, who wrote two of my favorite books (Love in a Cold Climate and The Pursuit of Love). I found the narrator to be very good, but the story itself was, not to put too fine a point on it, boring. I skipped from chapter 17 (short chapters) to the end, but fell asleep even while listening to the last chapter! (Good thing I wasn't driving.) Very disappointed.
