Description

A missing author and a sleepy English village rife with secrets . . .

September, 1923. Despite closing her first case, high society lady detective Olive Belgrave hasn’t found a new client. She’s taken a job as a hat model to pay for her poky boarding house room. But then a job offer comes her way—make discreet inquiries about a famous author who’s disappeared. 

Olive travels to the English countryside to hunt for the missing mystery author. But soon after she arrives in the sleepy village, a body is discovered. Then a second murder focuses the police’s attention on Olive, and she must clear her name before the murderer pens a plot that frames her. 

Murder at Blackburn Hall is the second book in the High Society Lady Detective series, a lighthearted cozy historical mystery series set in 1920s England. If you love novels that take you back to the Golden Age of detective fiction with interesting plots, posh settings, and twisty mysteries, you’ll love the High Society Lady Detective Series from USA Today bestseller Sara Rosett.

  • (5/5)
    As a fan of turn-of-the-century lady detectives (Miss Fisher, Amelia Peabody, etc.) I had to give Sara Rosette a go. While the first book was good, this one really sold me on the series.

    Olive Bellgrave is more down to Earth than my other fav lady detectives, and it's a breath of fresh air! She still gets up to hijinks, and the plot developments truley kept me on my toes.

    I also like that the final chapter includes how Rosette developed the plot/mystery/characters. It's pleasant to see into the author's head a little and makes me feel like I could try my hand at writing a mystery too.

    Another enjoyable crime story accompanying my sewing, I don't think I could ask for more pleasant afternoons.
  • (4/5)
    An excellent cozy mystery. Really enjoying the development of the main character Olive and we get a peak at the next mystery in the series.
  • (4/5)
    Olive is a society young woman but is broke and gets a job working for a publishing company and must go to a society house party under the guise of previewing an etiquette book but really trying to get the latest draft of a reclusive writer’s serial book which is late and lives nearby. She discovers that the author has been murdered and is hiding an identity secret.
  • (5/5)
    historical-fiction, cosy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, 1920s Olive needs a job very badly and a friend directs her to a publisher who can't find his author of best selling books. He arranges to have her stay for a few days in the area he thinks that the author might be, but the cover story is that she is there to vet a book on etiquette. The lady of the house is a real gorgon, her sister is a scientist, the son is a golf maniac Olive knows from debutante days, and the policeman is unimaginative. Until the next murder. I loved it! Elizabeth Klett is perfect for narrating as a perky young Londoner of the time.
