But despite lying outside my preference, I couldn ’ t help loving the book from nex page.

S despite an Edwardian mindset, Kate Kingsbury created no stereotype in which he is snobbish.

There is an entertaining difference of opinion but he is compassionat and in the right circumstances, ight be personal friend.Maybe the historical component avoids being dry or ostentatious because Cecily isn ’ t prim, or because all of the focus leans on one thing that time doesn ’ t change: people are people.

And why is everyone referring to the victim as nothing but " milady " it read like an affectation people put on when they try to pass for someone they are n't and became annoying long before the 33rd time it was used.This book 's redeeming graces were Gertie, who as the only haracter who truly eemed to know who she was and then ollow her purpose in being there, and he assertio that there was no romance ( though I kept wondering if we were being set up for one with Baxter).

Plenty of people disliked Lady Eleanor Danbury- Cecily just needs to get out who hated Lady Eleanor enough to kill her. “ Room With A Clue ” is the nicely done first book in Kate Kingsbury 's Pennyfoot Hotel cozy mystery series.

I sense a theme: This irst nove of the Pennyfoot Hotel Mysteries is cute but is more interested in its characters and action as puzzle pieces than as living people.
