Summary

"A week at Trysting had its trials", Leigh thought. A round of odd jobs with Aunt Elvira, bad poetry with Aunt Rosande, and bouts of hay fever with Aunt Dolly were not his idea of a restful holiday. Nor did his cousin Raymond, who seemed sunk in gloom, help matters. Or a mystery Leigh could not fathom about someone burning down the old house and the disappearance of the family silver. But meanwhile there was a Hampshire summer, and there was Auriol.

Auriol, Leigh thought, was lovely - but he didn’t want to live on eggs.

Another treasure from the past.

Money to Burn was published in 1955 and is a gentle, romantic cozy mystery revolving around the burning down of an old family house and the disappearance of the family silver.
It’s a stroke of good fortune that Elizabeth Cadell’s daughter, Janet Reynolds, is the narrator.
The stories are always charming with picturesque settings and amusing dialogue between the well written characters.
When I want a respite from the hectic times in which we are living, I turn to this author to find calm and peace.
