Publisher's Summary

Scandal, secrets, and bawdy photographs are uncovered when the wife of a politician is murdered. Untangle the lies with Cleo and her friends, and find the killer.

When Harry Armitage passes an investigation to Cleo involving adultery, they both think it will end in divorce. But when the client’s wife is found stabbed in her drawing room, it becomes clear that marital problems are only part of the story. Reluctantly joining forces, Cleo and Harry realize the wrong person was targeted, but the police think they have their killer and refuse to look elsewhere. 

Taking on the investigation themselves, they peel back the lies and expose the sordid details of a marriage in tatters, and see firsthand how gossip and politics fuel the machinations of high society. 

Meanwhile, at the Mayfair Hotel, expansion plans are on the menu, causing tensions to heat up in the kitchen between the chef and Cleo’s uncle. To make matters worse, Cleo’s family notices her spending less time at the hotel and more time investigating – and some members don’t like it.

Cleo and Harry solve another Murder

CJ has done it again. I can predict which characters will fall in love from the beginning of a series but I can never guess who the killer is until the last few pages of each book.

Cleo continues her independent nature and grows more confident. She makes close friendships as she challenges the English class system. Her charm, wit, character qualities are endearing. I anxiously await book #4 in June and in the mean time i will read the Freak House #2 series and more

I had cataract surgery this week so I have really appreciated Audible even more than usual since me reading has been very difficult but I can still listen!!!

Murder in the Drawing Room

This is the third book in the series of detective mysteries, with Cleo rushing in head first into trouble. Read brilliantly again by Marian Hussey.

another brilliant story brilliantly narrated.

This series has fast become a favourite of mine, and the narrator is very good. It's hard to tell it's the same person narrating all the parts. Can't wait for the next release!

Cannot wait for the next book.

Excellent investigation. Very easy to listen to and keeps you engaged with lots of twists and turns. Not an easy to guess or foretold conclusion.
