Written in the spirit of Saki and P.G. Wodehouse, these four neo-Edwardian stories will appeal to fans of Downton Abbey, costume history buffs, and fanciers of Victorian life and culture.
Two of the stories focus on costume and needlework: "Stitches," in which a ghostly seamstress trains an apprentice, at a fearful cost and "Crape," a tale about Victorian mourning conventions gone horribly wrong.
“Property of a Lady” tells the love story of a sentimental succubus and a gentleman with a taste for artistic erotica.
The title story, “A Spot of Bother” introduces Mr. Daffodil, housekeeper at stately Whitsend Hall. When Nancy, the still-room maid is decapitated by the dumbwaiter, Mrs. D. is there to tidy away the family skeletons in an ever-widening circle of murderous accidents. Think Downtown Abbey meets Dexter.
