Summary

Newly appointed as land agent to the youthful Lord Croft, Matthew Rowsley finds plenty to keep him busy as he attends to his lordship's neglected country estate. But he's distracted from his tasks by the disappearance of a young housemaid. Has Maggie really eloped with a young man, as her mother attests - or is the truth rather more sinister? What's been going on behind the scenes at the grand country estate, and where has his lordship disappeared to?

Teaming up with housekeeper, Mrs Faulkner, to get to the bottom of the matter, Matthew uncovers a number of disturbing secrets, scandals and simmering tensions within the household.

Ok

Easy listening but a bit cliched. Such a shame as I’ve really enjoyed her other books.

Run of the mill mystery

A decent story nicely told. There is an interesting theme about Victorian Puritanism taking over from Georgian excess and I laughed out loud at a comment about the unflattering nature of Victorian hairstyles.
