(The first book in the Lady Jane & Mrs Forbes Mystery series)
A novel by

Imagine Agatha Christie crossed with Murder, She Wrote...

In this light-hearted cozy mystery, Kate Forbes and her niece, Lady Jane Scott are about to become amateur sleuths.

England, December 1927

Having been close companions during Jane’s childhood, especially after Jane��s mother died, aunt and niece grew apart when Jane went off to university and began a new life.

In this first story of the series, their relationship has a chance to begin again with an invitation to a society birthday party at Linton Hall. But with Jane now an independent, academically minded 26-year-old, does unassuming widow, Aunt Kate still have a meaningful role in her niece’s life?

At the hall, Lord Linton’s heir, Edward, has returned from years of living in Paris. Unfortunately, he’s failed to change his arrogant ways, which upsets many of the guests.

For Kate and Lady Jane, looking forward to celebrating over canapes and champagne, the last thing they expect is to become amateur sleuths pitting their wits against Inspector Ridley of Scotland Yard to prevent the wrong person being hanged for murder.

Faced with an ensemble of social climbers, eccentrics and schemers, aunt and niece must work together to untangle a web of secrets, lies and deceit if they're to discover whodunnit.

Join Kate and Lady Jane in the first of their entertaining 1920s cozy mysteries. Perfect for fans of T. E. Kinsey, Verity Bright, and Lee Strauss.
