Book 1 in The Heathcliff Lennox series

It's 1920 and Christmas is coming. Major Lennox finds a body on his doorstep - why on his doorstep? Was it to do with the Countess? Was it about the ruby necklace? Lennox goes to Melrose Court home to his uncle, Lord Melrose, to uncover the mystery. But then the murders begin and it snows and it all becomes very complicated....

Major Heathcliff Lennox, ex-WW1 war pilot, six feet 3 inches, tousled, dark blond hair, age around 30 - named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother - much to his great annoyance. Murder at Melrose Court is the first book in the Lennox series.

About the Author

1920's, Cozy crime, Traditional Detectives, Downton Abbey - I love them!
Along with my family, my friends, my dog, and my cat.
At age 60 I decided to write. I don't know why but suddenly the stories came pouring out along with the characters.
Eccentric uncles, stalwart butlers, idiosyncratic servants, machinating Countesses, Mr Fogg the dog, and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox at the center of it all.
Suddenly a whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along...

I've lived an itinerate life, always on the move having grown up in the military. My two sons are Jonathan and Sam Baugh, married to Laura and Wendy respectively. Grandchildren are Scarlett, Hugo, Charlie, Joshua and Isabella Rose. We are infinitely fortunate in each other.
My dear husband is Krov Menuhin, ex-US Special Forces, and documentary filmmaker. He is the eldest son of the violinist, Yehudi Menuhin.

Table of Contents

Murder, mystery series set in 1920s England amongst the upper classes - think Downton Abbey and Agatha Christie with a touch of Wodehouse. An amateur sleuth, rather inept, but with a degree of charm, Major Heathcliff Lennox fought through WW1 as a pilot and wished to return to a quiet life in the country with his butler and dog for company. A charge of murder soon drags him into detecting and he must clear his name.

More adventures ensue as the series progresses. Old English Country Houses are the usual setting, but Castles, cottages and pubs are all part of the mix.
