Description

Downton Abbey meets Agatha Christie with a touch of Wodehouse and a dog of distinction.

It's 1920, and Christmas is coming. 

Major Lennox finds a body on his doorstep - why on his doorstep? Was it to do with the Countess? Was it about the ruby necklace? Lennox goes to Melrose Court, home to his uncle, Lord Melrose, to uncover the mystery. But then, the murders begin, and it snows, and it all becomes very complicated.

Major Heathcliff Lennox, ex-WW1 war pilot, six feet 3 inches, tousled, dark blond hair, age around 30 - named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother - much to his great annoyance. Murder at Melrose Court is the first book in the Lennox series.

A great cozy mystery

I don’t usually read mysteries, but I really enjoyed this one. Looking forward to reading the second book in the series.

Will be returning this book

The last few chapters were the best part of this book. The story itself was very improbable. I lost patience with the main character early on and then after the first few painful chapters used the fast forward button to get through the rest. I bought this based on previous reviews whose opinion I unfortunately don’t share.

Cozy, but not too sweet

This series has a nice dose of humor AND reality mixed in with the "cozy" aspect of the mystery. This first book is a little sillier than the ones that come after. There was enough true mystery to make me want to go on with the series, even though cozies aren't normally my thing. The performance was quite well done. I could actually tell the characters apart by their voices, unlike some narrations. Highly recommend!

Perfect for a fall or winter evening!

Loved everything about this first in what I hope to be a long series! Loved the characters, the setting, the humor, and the narration by Sam Dewhurt-Phillips was spot on! A lot of cliché rolled in with the humor and is not in my opinion out of place. Set in the 1920s, in the English Countryside in a manor house chock full of odd characters with their own secrets and snowbound for Christmas? Oh yes! For Anglophiles, Agatha Christie devotees, Cozy Mystery lovers, dog lovers, and anyone in need of a jolly good yarn. Well done Ms. Menuhin! Great blend of something old and something new!

Pleasantly surprised

I am a dedicated reader of the the Golden Age of Mystery so I am always skeptical about contemporary attempts to contribute to the library. I bought this title based on the strength of the reviews and at first I thought I'd made a mistake. This book definitely took some time to get in to but I ended up finishing it in a single sitting. A few classic nods to masters definitely made me chuckle. Solidly on the Cozy Crime shelf of the library but I for now it's earned it's place. I look forward to Audible producing a few more. Definitely keep the Sam as the narrator. Happy sleuthing!

Absolute best narrator!

Delightful old fashioned mystery. Read by a master. So good that I plan to listen to it again.

Fantastic

I’ve never left a review, but I really enjoyed this book more than I anticipated I would. And the narrator is absolutely fantastic!

What a fun read/listen!

Fun Agatha Christie type mystery with great characters and Lennox. Fun too to find more alliterations throughout the story. My new Most Favorite narrator Sam Dewhurst Phillips. He drew each character with love & fun. They each were so individual. Great fun, I want more stories and more Sam Dewhurst-Phillips.

Can't wait for a sequel

Enjoyed this one so much. Good story-line, interesting characters, nice plot twists, and excellent naration. Hope the author makes this wacky family of characters into a series. If you like post WW1 period English mysteries with a good amount of humor, this is a definite buy.
