Twenty-six-year-old Beatrice Hyde-Clare is far too shy to investigate the suspicious death of a fellow guest in the Lake District. A spinster who lives on the sufferance of her relatives, she would certainly not presume to search the rooms of her host's son and his friend looking for evidence. Reared in the twin virtues of deference and docility, she would absolutely never think to question the imperious Duke of Kesgrave about anything, let alone how he chose to represent the incident to the local constable. And yet that's exactly what she does.

During the first chapter I thought this might not be my kind of book. I'm so glad I stuck with it! The pace picked up right away and it was a really good mystery. And I love a heroine who isn't a fool and doesn't need anyone to save her!

New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history - and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul's client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the lightbulb and holds the right to power the country?

If you've ever looked into your own family history, you know you have to pay attention to the names to keep everyone straight. The family history in this story is no different, but it easily holds your attention. Definitely worth the listen.

Different than what I expected; not a "typical cozy". The main character is intelligent and not repeatedly doing ridiculous things.
The characters have depth and interesting backstories. The mystery is fairly good and the dialogue well-written. Looking forward to the next book.
The narrator was very good. She's articulate and easy to understand. Her voice is deep enough that male characters don't sound silly. It's very easy to follow a dialogue. She does several accents well too.

Love this one. I love Charlie's family and they're definitely a big part of this one. The story revolves around the treatment of children (human and feline) and is beautifully woven. The murder mystery is wrapped in that undercurrent as well. Looking forward to the next book.

Very good. The mystery itself is a good one - keeps you involved. The characters are interesting and it's easy to care about them.
The best thing (imho) is that this isn't the typical, same old cozy formula.
Can't wait to start the next one!

Andrew Thale is not exactly thrilled when his overbearing father sends him on an errand to assess the property inherited from an eccentric aunt. Andrew is intrigued though, when he finds the house fully occupied. Its odd and interesting residents have a calming effect on him, especially the beautiful young woman named Tarragon. But his arrival seems to have set a series of mysterious events into motion. Narrator John McDonough’s engaging performance lets you share in the excitement and camaraderie.

The year is 1920: Flying in the face of convention, legendary American adventuress Beryl Helliwell never fails to surprise and shock. The last thing her adoring public would expect is that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the ticket. And, honestly, until America comes to its senses and repeals Prohibition, Beryl has no intention of returning stateside and subjecting herself to bathtub gin.

I completely enjoyed this book. First of all, it's read by the fabulous Barbara Rosenblatt - nuff said there. (She's SO talented!)

The book itself is great too. Very good mystery with lots of interesting suspects that have plausible reasons for committing the crime.

The 2 main characters are fun, funny, and intelligent. Their own backgrounds are interesting so hopefully we'll hear more of that as the series progresses. Best of all, they actually do a good job of investigating and taking us along for the ride.

I've gotten very tired of the cozy formula of young woman who's beautiful, but doesn't know it, doing absolutely moronic things while running some small business that has nothing to do with criminal investigation, all the while having the complete confidence of the smoldering detective who alternately humiliates and desires her beyond his contol. Enough! This book gratefully has NONE of that! Yay!

Definitely worth the listen. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did and that there's a lot more Beryl and Edwina to come!!
