Inhaltsangabe

Spring, 1909, and Lady Hardcastle, amateur sleuth and all-round eccentric, is enjoying a well-deserved rest. But a week after a trip to the cattle market, Spencer Caradine, a local farmer, turns up dead in the pub, face-down in his beef and mushroom pie. Once again, it is up to Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, to solve the case.

Armed with wit and whimsy, not to mention Florence's mean right hook, the pair set out to discover what really happened and why. Was it poison or just ill luck?

As they delve further into their investigation, they encounter a theft where nothing is stolen, a séance with a troubled ghost and an ever-increasing number of Spencer's family and friends who might just have motive for murder. One thing's for sure: Lady Hardcastle has a mystery on her hands.

Very captivating detective story!

Narrator was great. Different characters-different voices-different accents-superbly mastered.
Story itself seemed REAL.
Quite a few elements to make you grin...

Witty and quirky

I just love this sort of mystery, so I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first volume.

Narrator Elizabeth Knowelden was once again spot on and conveyed the atmosphere perfectly.

If you like a cozy, clean mystery with humour and witty dialogues, as well as a reasonable plot, I can recommend this series.

A great fan

Right from the start of book 1 I've been a great fan of Lady Hardcastle and her "tiny servant" who, though slight, can look after herself (there's more to her than meets the eye).
They help solve a murder case in their rural whereabouts in their own special way, are emancipated, have an adventurous past in India and China (which at times shocks the society they live in).
It's always dissappointing when a book ends - but luckily there are books 3 + 4 !!!
