Publisher's Summary

A high-society murder. A spirited lady detective. Can she outclass the killer before an innocent person takes the fall? 

London, 1923. Olive Belgrave needs a job. Despite her aristocratic upbringing, she’s penniless. Determined to support herself, she jumps at an unconventional job - looking into the background of her cousin’s fiancé, Alfred. 

Alfred burst into the upper crust world of London’s high society, but his answers to questions about his past are decidedly vague. Before Olive can gather more than the basics, a murder occurs at a posh party. Suddenly, every Bright Young Person in attendance is a suspect, and Olive must race to find the culprit because a sly murderer is determined to make sure Olive’s first case is her last. 

Murder at Archly Manor is the first in the High Society Lady Detective series of charming historical cozy mysteries. If you like witty banter, glamorous settings, and delightful plot twists, you’ll love USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett’s series for Anglophiles and mystery lovers alike.

Travel back to the golden age of detective fiction with Murder at Archly Manor.

A nice little mystery

An interesting enough mystery but the writing wasn’t of the first order. I suspect that the author is American as it kept showing up in places. The narrator was rather stilted too. Don’t think I’ll persevere with the series.

A Great Cozy

This was exactly what I was in the mood for. Well written, great pace and wonderful characters, Sara Rosett delivers a spot-on cozy mystery. I honestly thought I’d guessed the villain, but the story came to a surprising, yet still inevitable conclusion. An easy read and listening experience, the narrator was perfect for the book’s tone. I’ll definitely be looking to enjoy more of this series.

Really wish this had been as good as a Rhys Bowen

This story did not do it for me. No characterization, a half-baked love interest hint, no humour. Readers are much better off with Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness books. They are loads more fun and do social commentary far better.
