Publisher's Summary

Midnight treasure hunts, fancy-dress parties, and a blue-blooded murder...

November, 1923. Olive’s school chum Gigi invites Olive to London because Gigi’s dotty grandmother fears for her life - or so she’s said to Gigi. However, Olive is surprised to find that the dowager is far from muddled. The sharp and imperious matriarch refuses to admit to her worries and sends Olive on her way.

Without a client or case, Olive is swept into the glittering lifestyle of the “fast set” and their decadent excess. But then, among the cocktails and champagne, a murderer strikes during a frivolous party game, and Olive realizes the dowager’s fears were well-founded. 

Can Olive unmask the upper crust culprit before the party’s over for a bright, young person?

An Old Money Murder in Mayfair is the fifth installment in the popular High Society Lady Detective series from USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett. Join Olive and her dapper sleuthing partner Jasper, as they navigate the extravagant parties of the Bright Young People as well as their own budding relationship.

Very Enjoyable Series

I enjoyed all the books in this series. The tone is light and bouncy but the mysteries are well crafted. There is good character development and a sence of fun synonymus with the Roaring Twenties

Fun Story!

Sara Rosett takes several of the historical realities of 1920’s England to craft a fun read. It’s definitely a cozy mystery so don’t expect anything deep and meaningful. I’m one who tires of the police being the “bad guys who have no brains” and this is yet another. I would like to know if inspectors of the time truly went for the easiest solution without considering other facts. Just a frustration to me in books like this. It doesn’t detract from listening through the whole story and looking forward to Sara’s next installment. It does, however, keep me from giving this a full 5 stars. Elizabeth Klett does a fine job of narration but as the desire for more performance levels grows, narrators are almost required to grow with that trend and some can’t. Elizabeth is a narrator as opposed to a performer. She’s easy to listen to so won’t drive you to distraction with being too fast, slow, or monotone.

Enjoy a good listen and try this series! It’s light and a nice distraction during continuing days of unrest in our shared reality in the time period I’m posting this review.

Wonderful and ingaging

I love the stories of Olive and Jasper. The books give a sense of old friends with whom you can spend the day just talking to. I highly recommend this series.

Afterwards

Sara Rosett’s High Society Lady Detective are fascinating works of fiction. I think some of my favorite parts though are the author’s notes after the story where is talks a little about the research that went into the story

Bright Young Things

The Olive Belgrave series is my favorite of author Sara Rosett. The characters are delightful. The mystery wasn’t that difficult to solve but it’s perfect listening during pandemic sheltering at home time.

Charming cosy mystery series

Thoroughly enjoy Olive’s adventures. Elizabeth Klett is the perfect “voice” for Olive. I am listening to the entire series for a second time and just as delightful as the first time.

A typical installment

If you like the series you will like the book. The murder has a couple of twists which keep you guessing until the end. It’s a light listen, fast listen. Narration is well done which helps move the story along,I enjoyed it.
