A Quiet Life In The Country by T E Kinsey

Lady Emily Hardcastle is an eccentric widow with a secret past. Florence Armstrong, her maid and confidante, is an expert in martial arts. The year is 1908 and they’ve just moved from London to the country, hoping for a quiet life.

But it is not long before Lady Hardcastle is forced out of her self-imposed retirement. There’s a dead body in the woods, and the police are on the wrong scent. Lady Hardcastle makes some enquiries of her own, and it seems she knows a surprising amount about crime investigation…

As Lady Hardcastle and Flo delve deeper into rural rivalries and resentment, they uncover a web of intrigue that extends far beyond the village. With almost no one free from suspicion, they can be certain of only one fact: there is no such thing as a quiet life in the country.

About the Author

T E Kinsey grew up in London and read history at Bristol University. He worked for a number of years as a magazine features writer before falling into the glamorous world of the Internet, where he edited content for a very famous entertainment website for quite a few years more. After helping to raise three children, learning to scuba dive and to play the drums and the mandolin (though never, disappointingly, all at the same time), he decided the time was right to get back to writing. A Quiet Life in the Country is the first in a series of mysteries starring Lady Hardcastle.

A fun pair of irrepressible eccentric sleuths insert themselves into the local constabulary's murder investigations in 1908 England. Very lighthearted and pleasant read for a dismal day or mood. Elizabeth Knowelden is exceptional at interpreting Lady Hardcastle and Miss Armstrong as well as the rest of the characters (pun intended).

Historical British setting Fascinatingly unconventional women characters Convoluted mystery--surely all the pieces are part of one whole, but how? Humor Danger Music It has it all
