Publisher's Summary

An English manor home, an unsolved mystery, too many suspects to count...it’s the perfect holiday for romance novelist Sara Medlar.

After solving two murder cases in their hometown of Lachlan, Florida, Sara Medlar, her niece Kate and their friend Jack need a change of scenery. Sara arranges for them to visit an old friend of hers in England. Upon arrival at Oxley Manor, a centuries-old estate that has been converted to a luxury hotel, Kate and Jack quickly realize that Sara is up to something. They learn that Sara has also invited a number of others to join them at Oxley.

When everyone assembles, Sara lets them know why they are there. Decades earlier, two people ran off together from Oxley and haven’t been heard from since - and Sara wants to solve the case. As the people who were there the night the two went missing, the guests find themselves cast in a live mystery-theater event.

In reenacting the events of that night, it becomes clear that everyone has something to hide and no one is safe, especially when the discovery of a body makes it clear that at least one of the people who disappeared was murdered.

Sara, Jack, and Kate are once again at the heart of a mysterious case that only they are able to solve. But someone is willing to continue to kill to keep the truth about Oxley Manor buried, and none of the guests are safe.

New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux has crafted another irresistible case in her bestselling Medlar Mystery series.

Loved the first two, this one is terrible.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but this installment was not good at all. The story is slow and boring and devoid of the humor that made the first two books good. I won't be continuing with the series and since Audible has made it more difficult to return books, I will be more diligent in choosing my next listen.

I was worried when i read other reviews..,

i loved the first 2 books and think this was right in line with the series. I almost didn't read it because of the negative reviews- I don 't understand what they were complaining about. These characters are great and I hope there will be more books!

Disjointed

I like the other two books in the series. This left me trying to figure out what she was trying to do. The narrator was fine. The story way too much at points and not enough in others. It was just not good. I like these characters and I hope she does better by them in the next installment.

Great story!!

I really loved this book! There was a few times I suspected the killer but then something would come up to throw you off. I do like the relationship that Kate, Jack and Sarah have but I do with that Kate and Jack would get on with it. It’s driving me nuts like they are moving in slow motion. I’m also really interested in what Sarah is still keeping from Kate about her father.

Great story and brilliant narration. The performance brought out each character and all the different accents were very well done. Highly recommend this book!

Jude Deveraux doesn’t it again!

I love the Meddler series of books. Susan Bennett Hass to be my favorite narrator of all time! This has been a great book during quarantine time of covid 19!

Pretty good; not as clean as I’d like

Has language that I don’t see as necessary to the story. Not sure why people think that foul language adds to a plot line. If the story is good, expletives don’t improve on it, in my opinion.
The reader is very good, especially since she has to move from voice to voice and accent to accent.
I’ll be glad when Kate and Jack finally get together. I hate being strung along .

Maybe ok if on sale

I was really surprised as to how terrible this book was. This was my third book and the other two was great. But this one with the bad accent, jumpy story line. I had to return it. It was boring, I felt a slept twice and I keep losing track of the story line.

An engaging story with lots of twists and turns

Listen carefully for each of the characters. There are many of them and each plays an important role. I liked the story. The reader does not do male voices very well, but otherwise the reader is alright.
