Murder in Haunted Cornwall.
On the eve of World War II, Dr. Benjamin Bones is at war with himself. While most young men are being sent away to fight the Germans, Ben is chosen to serve on English soil. Ordered to move to wild, beautiful Cornwall, he must trade his posh London office and stylish city life for the tiny village of Birdswing, population 1,221 souls. But leaving his home and shelving his career ambitions aren’t the only sacrifices facing Ben. His unfaithful wife, Penny, is accompanying him to Cornwall in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage. But moments after their arrival, Penny is run down in the street, and Ben is almost fatally injured. And while the villagers assume Penny’s death to be an accident, Ben quickly deduces it was murder.
As he convalesces in Fenton House, which the locals call haunted, Ben meets Birdswing’s eccentric inhabitants. Mr. Gaston, the volunteer air warden, obsessed with defending his remote village against Nazi spies; Mrs. Cobblepot, a thoroughly practical housekeeper who believes in fairies; and Lady Juliet Linton, a prickly, headstrong aristocrat who won’t take no for an answer. While adapting to life during Britain’s “War at Home,” a time of ration books, victory gardens, bomb shelters, and the Blackout, Ben sets about solving the mystery of Penny’s murder—with a little help from Lady Juliet and the Fenton House ghost.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I loved this book. When I read Emma Jameson, I always feel as if I’m watching one of my favorite mystery series. Her work has the pacing and snappy dialogue to make perfect television, but they also make excellent mysteries.
Jameson has mastered the art of bringing quirky British, small town characters to life so quickly and easily the reader cares immediately what happens to them. Therein lies the success of this book, charming characters in a fairly simple plot that works.
Wow. I’m amazed. My favorite mystery author is now my new favorite historical author. I love everything Emma Jameson writes, and I think I love this book even more than her Lord and Lady Hetheridge series.
I loved this book! Emma Jameson is a wonderful author, her development of plot is quick and catchy, and her involvement of the supernatural just tweets your imagination.
The writing is terrific, the story very interesting, the main characters are smart and don’t make too many dumb mistakes, and the ending is very satisfactory.
