Summary

South Regent Mansions has all the modern conveniences...including murder

London, February, 1924. Discreet sleuth for the high society set Olive Belgrave is delighted with her new flat at South Regent Mansions, where she’s made several friends, including the modern career woman, Minerva, who draws a popular cartoon about a flapper for a London newspaper.

But then Minerva comes to Olive for help after catching a glimpse of a disturbing sight - a dead body. At least, that’s what Minerva thought she saw, but there’s not a dead body anywhere in the posh building, and the residents are continuing with their lives as they normally do. Is Minerva seeing things? Is she barmy? Or is there a more sinister explanation? 

To help restore Minerva’s peace of mind, Olive investigates her neighbors. They include society’s “it” girl of the moment, an accountant with a fondness for gadgets, a snooty society matron, and a schoolteacher turned bridge instructor. Olive uncovers rivalries, clandestine affairs, and hidden jealousies. With dashing Jasper at her side, Olive must discover whose secret is worth killing for. 

If you like sophisticated whodunits, charming characters, and novels with a lighthearted tone, you’ll enjoy the seventh installment of the High Society Lady Detective series, Murder at the Mansions, from USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett.

Chapters Out of Order?

I’m hoping it’s a problem with the audio that can be corrected, and not a profound problem with the plot. Minerva has gone away, then she’s in several scenes before she actually returns. Surprisingly, it wasn’t that confusing, because it was pretty obvious what had happened, and Who Done It, and even Why by then.

Too simple to figure out the plot

There’s lightweight and then there’s lightweight. The characters are shallow. The plot too simplistic . Not worth a credit. Read it when it’s offered for free
