Publisher's Summary

It was the most fashionable place to stay in London, until murder made a reservation. Solve the puzzle in this new mystery from USA Today bestselling author of the Glass and Steele series.

December 1899. After the death of her beloved grandmother, Cleopatra Fox moves into the luxury hotel owned by her estranged uncle in the hopes of putting hardship and loneliness behind her. But the poisoning of a guest throws her new life, and the hotel, into chaos.

Cleo quickly realizes no one can be trusted, not Scotland Yard and especially not the hotel’s charming assistant manager. With the New Year’s Eve ball approaching fast and the hotel’s reputation hanging by a thread, Cleo must find the killer before the ball, and the hotel itself, are ruined. But catching a murderer proves just as difficult as navigating the hotel’s hierarchy and the peculiarities of her family.

Can Cleo find the killer before the new century begins? Or will someone get away with murder?

I can't forgive her.

I have listened to every book available from CJ Archer & this is a miss for me. Cleo is not charming enough to forgive the destruction of a man's life & career. No one is.

Good Victorian fun

The book paints a very descriptive picture of the age and the classes. The murder keeps you guessing. a great escape.

Loved the book

I liked everything about the book. The narration was especially good. So many great characters. Serious, funny, kept you interested but also made you laugh. Want another just like it.

Hussey or a Lady?

Which provoked me more? I first heard Marian Hussey perform Monsters and Manners. I quickly fell in love with the narratrix and the series! Murder and the Mayfair was recommended to me on Audible and when I saw Marian's name I was sold. Next came the Lady, Cleo Fox. Her story was charming and elegant yet grimy and cheesy. Overall I adored the storyline and the characters. I kept thinking Cleo and Harry would end up together but the story (mostly) let out romance which ended in relief for this novel. Just a new girl trying to fit in while Curiosity drew her to solve a crime. Very entertaining indeed.

disappointed

helps if a person likes the main character but found her to be stupid, quick to run down a bad path as a solution and just not likeable. will not continue with series. BTW, the male character was likeable, would have been better to have him as main character.

Not worth a credit

Hm. Disappointed in this novel. The story is whiny and the narrator has an odd anxiousness to her voice. I returned this book

Disappointing

I love C J Archer stories and was excited to read this one. Unfortunately I was really disappointed. Many of the characters are quite sweet and endearing but the main character, Cleopatra Fox is nosy, meddling, and quite arrogant, and I really didn't like her at all. I also found the delivery of the story quite dumbed-down. Such a shame.

Boring from characters to the story

slow, struggled to the 3 chapter and left there. why would I loss my time with a main character that the writer didn't manage to make me feel to care at all and the rest so predictable?

loved it.

I loved the book. Was sad to finish it. Can't wait for the next one. It is little bit similar to The Glass and Steele books which I love too, but also different to them as well. Lots of interesting characters. I love how all characters have their own voice and Marian Hussey performance is great too, adding to the character's sound.
