Love this series

I have been so pleased to find this series set in the post World War I era of the 1920s. Olive is becoming a favorite detective of mine not only because she’s a woman but she’s very clever! I really was guessing throughout most of the book who is the true murderer and had a bit of a surprise near the end! The parrot was a nice touch! I’m still wondering about Jasper, what role will he have in Olive’s life? The narrator is excellent!! I really get into the story listening to her accent and the way she paces the reading. A full immersion experience plugged into a different time and story line via an audible book.

Love This Series

Sara Rosett does a great job with this mystery series. She portrays the time period and actions realistically. The mystery is well crafted and well paced. I love the budding romance between Jasper and Olive. Although Jasper is portrayed as flighty, I know there is more to him and I can't wait to see how he and Olive develop together.

Cute English cozy

I’m in love with these characters! As usual it was a great listen that was perfectly narrated.
I can’t wait to see what they get up to in the next books!

Sorry, but could not even get through the first half an hour

It may have been a nice story, but the narration was sooo flat that it put me to sleep!
I could not get into the story, I could not distinguish between different characters and figure out who was who and what was going on.
Just incredibly boring narration!

Another great installment in a wonderful series!

This is an utterly addicting series - the perfect combination of author and narrator, with sparkling ‘performances’ by both! The only sad part is having to wait (again!) for the *next* installment! Thank you so very much for your charming and beguiling work, Ms. Rosett and Dr. Klett!!

Series still delivering

Apart from the title having nothing to do with the story this is a good yarn. Olive, the "high society lady detective" and her faithful partner in crime Jasper solve yet another murder. This one occurs at the country house of her Aunt and Uncle and of course, she has to deal with the added drama of her family being amongst the suspects. There are the usual twists and turns, red herrings etc but all in all just the right amount of drama for a cosy historical novel. I'm still enjoying the series four books in, well written and well, if not spectacularly, narrated.

enjoyable read

These books are so enjoyable. I listen to them on my morning walks and always go a bit further then expected because I want to keep listening to the story. I also love the way the author talks about her story inspiration at then end. I find that fascinating.
