Murder at Enderley Hall
Author: Helena Dixon
Publication Date: 19 March 2020
Genre: Adult Fiction – Cozy Historical Mystery
An escape to the country… ends in death.
Summer 1933. Fresh from the discovery that she has family living nearby, Kitty Underhay has packed her carpet bag, commandeered a chambermaid and set off on a visit to stately Enderley Hall. She’s looking forward to getting to know her relatives, as well as the assembled group of house guests. But when elderly Nanny Thoms is found dead at the bottom of the stairs after papers of national importance are stolen, Kitty quickly learns that Muffy the dog’s muddy paws on her hemline are the least of her problems.
Calling on ex-army captain Matthew Bryant for assistance, Kitty begins to puzzle out the mystery. And when more shocking murders follow, the stakes are raised for the daring duo as never before. Which of the guests stand to gain from the theft of the documents? And which, as the week progresses, stand to lose their lives?
A charming cozy historical murder mystery that fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss won’t be able to put down!
With everything going on these very crazy times that we are living in, I was so thankful to dive back into another cozy mystery by Helena Dixon that continues with our beloved Kitty Underhay and Matthew Bryant! Now if you didn’t read Murder at the Dolphin Hotel, don’t worry! Murder at Enderley Hall can most definitely be read as a standalone, but if you have the time, I highly recommend both!
Kitty Underhay is invited to spend time with her father’s family at Enderley Hall. Following the chaos that ensued at The Dolphin Hotel previously, Kitty is ready for a change of pace. At the insistence of her aunts, Kitty brings along her chambermaid Alice and sets off for Enderley Hall.
Immediately, Kitty realizes that something is not quite right in the atmosphere. When the elderly Nanny Thoms mistakenly calls Kitty by her mother’s name, she realizes that this family may know more regarding her mother’s disappearance all those years ago.
When important documents go missing from Kitty’s uncle’s safe, she enlists the help of ex-army captain Matt Bryant to see if they can capture the thief. When Nanny Thoms is suspiciously found dead, Kitty and Matt are determined to solve the murder even though danger lurks close by.
Helena has crafted another wonderful whodunit mystery full of twists and turns (and a few red herrings) that transports you to a picturesque 1930s English countryside. I love both Kitty’s and Matt’s characters and how they two of them balance each other with Kitty’s intuition and Matt’s previous military experience.
I can’t wait to see what the next adventure awaits next for Kitty!
