Publisher's Summary

When Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, are invited to Lord Riddlethorpe's country estate for a week of motor racing and parties, they both agree it sounds like a perfectly charming holiday. But when one of the drivers dies in a crash during the very first race, they discover that what seemed like an uncharacteristic error in judgement may have a more sinister explanation...

Closer investigation reveals that the driver's car was sabotaged - and the driver murdered. The local constabulary are quick to dismiss the case, but Flo and Lady Hardcastle are determined to find out just who has committed this dastardly act, and why.

As the pair begin to make enquiries of Lord Riddlethorpe's servants and guests, it seems that, below stairs and above, there is more to this case than meets the eye. And, even in the quiet of the countryside, death is always just around the bend.

I want to listen to another right away.

I am a big fan of the combination of this author and the narrator. I binge listen and an sad that there are no more for me to do gobble up. I so enjoy the the relationship between The Lady and her Maid. They are quite amusing. I am just sad that this is only the third of the books. I haven't found another cozy mystery that is anything close. would love a recommendation if anybody has

When will another one come out?! I can't wait!

T E Kinsey has really got something great going on. I'm huge into my Agatha C, my Sir Arthur C, my Nero W.....it's taken years of waiting, searching, waiting again to finally find a new author who writes interesting, fun, cozy, intriguing murder mysteries! Now I have found her and I wait on baited breath for the next one!!!! T E Kinsey cannot write fast enough to satisfy my desire to hear more of the adventures of Lady H and Flo!

Elizabeth Knowelden continues to surpass all expectations as a narrator. I prefer male narrators such as David Suchet or Hugh Fraser but Ms. Knowelden is superb ! I can't imagine a Lady H book read aloud by anyone else!! She is the voice of Flo! And of Lady H. To a T!!

Please please please write more, have them made into audiobooks and read by Ms. Knowelden! I have nothing else to read or listen too that is of the same caliber!!

Another Fantastic Addition to the Series!

Another fantastic, charming, and witty book in the Lady Hardscastle series. I tried to savor it and listen slowly but it's hard to because I enjoy TE Kinsey' s writing so much. I highly recommend this series to all my friends.

Waiting Impatiently for the next installment!

We've come to love these characters. The writer has done an excellent job of creating characters who are intriguing, endearing, lovable and are full of depth. We especially love the clever banter between Lady Hardcastle and Armstrong, her Ladies maid. These stories are an absolute joy.

I love the friendship of Flo & Hardcastle

I absolutely love the dynamic & friendship between Florence & Lady Hardcastle! They have such a wonderful friendship & banter, which is what makes this series so charming. I always love to see where the two will travel & what mystery they will uncover. This was my favorite of the books so far, as I felt like it had developed the characters very well. I felt invested in the new characters I met & really tense as I waited for the killer to strike again.
This series continues to be a favorite because of its wit, charm, Humor, mystery, intrigue & characters. It's the perfect blend of them all
