Summary

A 1920s lighthearted cozy mystery

Evie, the countess of Woodridge, has come under fire from a newcomer to the small village of Halton, but she has no time to dwell on the woman's petty-minded criticisms. She is hosting three scriptwriters. Unfortunately, they are determined to set their murder mystery at Halton House.

Evie's life is thrown into turmoil when reality begins to imitate fiction, and Henrietta, the dowager countess of Woodridge becomes the prime suspect in a villager's death.

So disappointing.

Having enjoyed the previous Evie Parker mysteries I was so disappointed by a such a silly plot which was repetitive, silly and had a cast of characters which promised to be interesting but never materialised, most noticeably Evie’s grandmother. Pearl Hewitt changed the voice she used for Tom making him altogether rougher. Sadly a foolish waste of time.
