A Perilous Promise

(A book in the Pennyfoot Hotel series)
A Novella by

“The author draws as much from Fawlty Towers as she does from Agatha Christie, crafting a charming…cozy delicately flavored with period details of pre-World War 1 rural England."-- Publisher’s Weekly

"Kingsbury’s books are lighthearted and serious, amusing and well plotted."-- The Salem (OR) Statesmen Journal


The Pennyfoot Hotel hides many secrets and its downstairs staff keeps a tight lip, even when the Edwardian aristocrats are spotted dallying with damsels in the boudoirs, or gambling in the forbidden card rooms hidden below the floorboards. Should now and then one of the hotel guests fall prey to a dastardly murderer, however, it is up to Cecily Sinclair to restore order before Scotland Yard steps in and shuts down her infamous seaside hotel.

Previously sold only in The Pennyfoot Hotel Omnibus, this prequel introduces some of the beloved characters of the Pennyfoot Hotel series. You will learn how Cecily became the owner of the hotel, see how her compulsion to solve puzzling crimes began and watch her fascinating first reactions to Hugh Baxter – the man destined to become a driving force in her life...
