Publisher's Summary

In post-World War I England, Lady Phoebe Renshaw and her lady's maid, Eva Huntford, step outside of their social roles and put their lives at risk to apprehend a vicious killer....

December 1918: As a difficult year draws to a close, there is much to celebrate for 19-year-old Phoebe Renshaw and her three siblings at their beloved family estate of Foxwood Hall. The dreadful war is finally over; eldest daughter Julia's engagement to their houseguest, the marquis of Allerton, appears imminent; and all have gathered to enjoy peace on Earth, goodwill toward men.

But the peace of Foxwood Hall is shattered on the morning of Boxing Day, when the marquis goes missing. Not entirely missing, however, as macabre evidence of foul play turns up in gift boxes given to lady's maid Eva Huntford and a handful of others. Having overheard her sister and the marquis in a heated exchange the night before, Lady Phoebe takes a personal interest in solving the mystery.

As the local constable suspects a footman at Foxwood Hall, Phoebe and Eva follow the clues to a different conclusion. But both young women will need to think outside the box to wrap up this case - before a cornered killer lashes out with ill will toward them....

    "Fun and distracting"
    Any additional comments?

    As I've said in my other reviews - I listen to cozy mysteries to keep my mind off of how much I hate exercising. This one did the trick. Its a bit contrived, but not boring. The mystery is interesting enough.

    "INTERESTING FIRST START FOR A NEW HISTORICAL SERIES"

    Alyssa Maxwell is an up and coming author. I love her Gilded Newport Mystery and she did not disappoint with her new seriesLady and Lay's Maid Mystery. Lady Phoebe and her lady's maid, Eva tried their hand on sleuthing when a guest, the Marquis Allerton, guest of Lady Phoebe's grandparents were murdered and there was no body. Lady Phoebe and Eva did a remarkable amount of sleuthing before finding the killer and were almost I danger of being killed. A very well written book and superbly performed by Ellen Archer whose array of voices were quite good. I hope the next book in the series will be published soon.

    "Alyssa Maxwell knows how to write"

    I have loved everything Alyssa Maxwell has written and this book didn't disappoint. I loved the upstairs/ downstairs feel of this story. I especially loved the parts told in Eva's point of view.
