The time is 1909 Emily, Lady Hardcastle and her personal maid, Florence Armstrong, have resettled in Gloustershire a year ago, abandoning the night lights of London At the instigation of the local constabulary and with the indulgence of C.I.D Inspector Sunderland, the two have solved several mysteries and already become local heroines As you can see above, the title of the only version I could find on differs from my Kindle copy, titled In the Market for Murder The descriptions seem to match so [...]

This is tremendous fun as widowed Lady Hardcastle and determined Florence, a lady s maid of many talents, come home to England from the East and settle to village life The year is 1909 and with gradual modernisation motor cars, for the rich, and telephones, though not in the country yet, we see older ways Farmers are dour and scrape a living even in Somerset One such farmer dies after the cattle market and Lady Hardcastle makes enquiries I was not sure of the source of the rumour that the man wa [...]
5 STARS for the audiobook 4 Stars for the book itself plus 1 star for the excellent narrator.First off, I m not sure if I would have enjoyed this series as much as I do, if I were reading it myself and not listening to the audiobook The narrator, Elizabeth Knoweldon is one of the best I ve heard She gives each character especially the mains and reoccurring characters unique voices Each relative to their station in society and their various regional accents I am certainly no expert at all but Lad [...]
Super fun cosy mystery Lady Hardcastle Flo strike again
, 20 , , , 2 , , , .
Delightful and clever cozy.
Book received from NetGalley.This is a cozy historical mystery set in Edwardian Britain The many mystery solvers are a Lady and her maid The upper class lady doesn t act like she s expected to, she s very no nonsense and has a mind of her own Her ladies maid is the same way and they both encourage each other to set the locals gossiping This is the second book in the series and while I really want to read the first one it s not necessary to read this book They have solved crimes before and the lo [...]
I love the camaraderie and dialogue between Lady Hardcastle and Flo The two have had a very interesting history together of which readers are only allowed fascinating glimpses In addition, they definitely keep up with the times Lady Hardcastle purchases a motor car, and a telephone is soon to be installed These two most decidedly have little to do with antimacassars and aspidistras I don t think their needlework is up to snuff either Occasionally my rational brain reminds me that the men in 1909 [...]
I really enjoyed the relationship between Emily and Florence in the first book, but I found the mystery part a bit simplistic and the ending was just a shambles However, I thought I would give the series another chance and I am pleased I did There are still too many faults with the story but the main characters are brilliant.The rapport between Emily and Florence is even better in this book and I would have been happy just to read about their quirky relationship.The mysteries have become a littl [...]
If you re missing Downton Abbey especially Lady Mary and Anna this is a terrific audible for you I picked book 1 up when it was on sale and am so glad exposed myself to this genre Charming with a subtle sweetness and women s lib Our sleuthing ladies are on another case a man falls dead into his pie at a pub Poison is obvious but who did it It s brilliant fun spending time with Lady Hardcastle and Florence I m happy to just hang with them and enjoy their wit and banter but the cases are also intr [...]
The 2nd of the series about Lady Hardcastle and Flo Definitely up to the standard of the first.Not exactly a country house murder but like an earlier setting for Midsomer Murders When the village s most unpopular resident dies in suspicious circumstances there are a lot of suspects and lots of motives.Then there is a robbery at the Rugby club and a haunting at the village pub Could they all be connected This is an easy to read who done it that our female duo manage to solve with equal honours.Fl [...]
Charming fun Loved this second installment the banter between lady H and Armstrong is witty and delightful while still being easy reading Very much enjoyed the full local cast of characters.
I really enjoy this series I find the dynamic between the Lady of the house and her ladies maid to be charming and unusual in a time when there was little interaction between staff and the upper crust , the level of admiration and trust and comradarie that they share is both refreshing and hilarious This time out sees the Lady Hardcastle and Armstrong solving not one but THREE different crimes, one of them being murder With great whit and grace, they set out to round up the perpetrators and be h [...]
Just in time for the holidays, Lady Hardcastle and her tiny servant , Florence Armstrong, are back with new adventures Lady Hardcastle s injuries sustained in the first book, A Quiet Life in the Country, have been slow to heal but both ladies are ready to get back to normal life in the village of Littleton Cotterell in Gloucestershire No longer considered incomers they both have the acceptance and liking of the village and a respectful relationship with Inspector Sunderland of the Bristol CID.Th [...]
This was a very good, entertaining historical mystery, set in 1909, the second in the series Lady Hardcastle and her lady s maid, Flo, are a fun, and funny, pair who solved several mini mysteries plus a murder in this one An easy, flowing read told in first person by Flo.
I absolutely adored Flo Armstrong and Lady Emily Hardcastle in the first book, A Quiet Life in the Country, and I lifted my self imposed NetGalley ban in order to request the second My adoration just grows with this one All of the humor from the first is back with even greater detective skills, rugby AND A GHOST At first it doesn t seem like all of it could possibly link together with the death of a cantankerous farmer, but Kinsey ties it up nicely Hopefully Kinsey will hurry with the next one a [...]
I thought I would like this book a lot than I did It had a number of very good reviews Now I think those that were disappointed just didn t write a review First I became exasperated with Lady Hardcastle calling every one dear whether a close friend or a new acquaintance Also there is a lot of time spent on essentially nothing but proving that the two central women are unusual By the time the mysteries wrapped up, I no longer cared and could hardly remember what the mystery was.
Very, very willing to follow adventures of Lady Hardcastle and surely the most unusual lady s maid in detectivection, Florence Armstrong Keep em coming, author Kinsey Recommended to all fans of the cozy English mystery The characters are engaging, the landscape of rural England prior to WW1 carefully drawn Altogether quite wonderful
02 03 16 England spring 1909 Fear not, tiny servant, I shall protect you with the Cow Nobbling Stick of Doom These stories are giving me smiles, mysteries and final solutions Once again I was entertained by these 4 mysteries Emily and Armstrong are uniquely qualified, by having survived their foreign exploits, to find the solutions.
Thoroughly enjoyable.The two books in this series so far have been fun and entertaining The characters are interesting and the multiple stories in each book keep the pace moving I am waiting for book three.
3.5 stars A fun, lighthearted, read with a bit of sass for that dash of next one, please
I love period cozy mysteries, and Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Flo, are such endearing characters Looking forward to reading the third book in this series.

Sherlock Dr Watson Meets Mrs Fletcher Right away I adored the Lady Hardcastle Mysteries I was looking for a series, definitely a mystery and suspense, and I prefer it clean, no smut This absolutely fit the bill This feels like Sherlock and Watson, mixed with a little Mrs Fletcher I love how you truly get a sense of how long Hardcastle and Armstrong have been together while glimpses of their travels elude to the antics they have been involved in The banter between them brings a refreshing humor D [...]

Murder maheim mystery a turn of the century cozy This cozy reminds me of Agatha Christie in having the murder front and center, then we have Emily Lady Hardcastle and sidekick Flo Armstrong query, nudge, pry in their best Miss Marple impressions although Emily is analytical, whereas Flo is intuitive ending with everyone in the drawing room library style of Hercule the loveable Belgium detective A great seamstress weaves the multiple cases together successfully T E Kinsey offers quick reads No [...]
