Description

An absolutely gripping cozy murder mystery

Move over Miss Marple, there’s a new sleuth in town! Meet Eleanor Swift: distinguished adventurer, dog lover, dignified lady…daring detective? 

England, 1920. Eleanor Swift has spent the last few years travelling the world: taking tea in China, tasting alligators in Peru, escaping bandits in Persia and she has just arrived in England after a chaotic 45-day flight from South Africa. Chipstone is about the sleepiest town you could have the misfortune to meet. And to add to these indignities - she’s now a Lady. 

Lady Eleanor, as she would prefer not to be known, reluctantly returns to her uncle’s home, Henley Hall. Now Lord Henley is gone, she is the owner of the cold and musty manor. What’s a girl to do? Well, befriend the household dog, Gladstone, for a start, and head straight out for a walk in the English countryside, even though a storm is brewing....

But then, from the edge of a quarry, through the driving rain, Eleanor is shocked to see a man shot and killed in the distance. Before she can climb down to the spot, the villain is gone and the body has vanished. With no victim and the local police convinced she’s stirring up trouble, Eleanor vows to solve this affair by herself. And when her brakes are mysteriously cut, one thing seems sure: someone in this quiet country town has Lady Eleanor Swift in their murderous sights....

If you enjoy witty dialogue, glamorous intrigue, and the very best of Golden Age mysteries, then you will adore Verity Bright’s whodunit, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T E Kinsey, and Downton Abbey!

Total Tripe

it has always been my intention to finish every book I start. And while I did that with this particular book it was an excruciating experience. it was the first book in a series and the last book I will ever read from this author. it just isn't worth the time going into any detail.

weak

the main character is difficult to like. she acts hastily and unwisely and justifies her actions as some kind of womens lib.

Very enjoyable

The story was great. The reader is very easy to listen too.
The only complaint is there isn’t another story. I will hope another story will be released soon.

Just not sure

Appreciated that the protagonist treated everyone equally regardless of class or status. However, for me to maintain interest in a series she needs to mature a bit, otherwise it's a bit too Young Adult level.

Truly Enjoyable

I've been looking for a light-hearted book for a bit. The narrator helped a great deal, keeping a rhythm that matched the story well. The story itself was fine and not all that complicated, but it did introduce a set of characters that I am hoping will continue on in many more books to come.
