Publisher's Summary

“Clever and entertaining, you’ll love this charming Golden Age mystery series. And the fashion is to die for!” - Molly C. Quinn, actress, Castle

There's a skeleton in the attic!

After a weeklong passage over the Atlantic from Boston to Liverpool, Ginger Gold arrives at her childhood London home--Hartigan House--to find decade-old remains from some poor woman on the floor in the attic. Ginger's Boston terrier, Boss, noses out a missing phalange from under the bed.
It's a mystery that once again puts Ginger alongside the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Reed. Who is the victim? And how did she end up in Ginger's home? 

Clues lead Ginger and her good friend Haley Higgins to a soirée hosted in 1913 by Ginger's late father, George Hartigan. A shadow of suspicion is cast on her father's legacy, and Ginger isn't so sure she wants to know the truth about the man she dearly loved. 

Ginger decides to host another soirée, inviting the guest list from ten years previous. Before the night is over, another person is dead.

Suspense and fashion

Lee Strauss has penned a fun and quickly paced cozy mystery. Well developed characters, plenty of twists, and enough suspects to keep you guessing. Elizabeth Klett narration was perfect.

Excellent narrator

I found Elizabeth Klett on one of the Sara Rosett mysteries. Her reading in this series is equally excellent

Elizabeth Klett narrator, monotonous and tendency to vocal fry

This novella was ok, it could have been better if this experienced voice artist could use tonality variances that made dialogue sound different from a BBC news caster reading a press release. The American accents tended toward the common and irritating effect of ‘Voice Fry or Vocal Fry’, a dry grating sound to speech that is becoming a prevalent and wearisome habit heard in a variety of media.

Story did not appeal to me.

I do listen to go to sleep and that it did. Voices not really my favorite. Too many he said she said. I am not sure I want to try another. It did put me too sleep.

Entertaining

I found this a fun and entertaining read but it also kept me guessing right up to the end.
