(The fifth book in the Maggie Darling Cozy Historical Mystery series)
A novel by

Maggie Darling, forty-something former London pie and mash shop girl, returned home to the seaside village of Cromer for a relaxing life. Thanks to her Uncle Tristan, things haven't worked out quite as she expected, much to her great annoyance.

THE PUDMORE COURT MYSTERY: A raisin scone, blackberry jam and murder…
Summer of 1923 has almost arrived in Norfolk, and the prospect of long lazy days on the Cromer beach with her nose in a book is the only thing on Maggie Darling's mind. And there is more good news when an old acquaintance of Uncle Tristan is invited to perform at the opening ceremony of the magnificent new complex of Pudmore Court. Even better, the new Lady Lord Mayor of Norwich is to perform the ribbon cutting.

But when the friend mysteriously vanishes hours before the opening ceremony, Maggie and Uncle Tristan are drawn into a baffling mystery where they must peel away the layers of high society life to reveal a shocking tangle of secrets, lies and murder.
