Lady Marigold Grey-former British spy and daring adventuress-sets out for England after inadvertently robbing her cousin of his inheritance. A long and dreary train journey lies ahead, but where Marigold goes, trouble follows. When the director of the train is murdered-and false evidence linking her to his death emerges-Marigold suddenly finds herself on the fast-track to becoming a prime suspect. With the help of her fashion-loving German assistant, overly protective English butler and troublemaking fluffy white terrier, Marigold resolves to clear her name and stop the killer in their tracks.

As she unravels the clues, Marigold is sure she's on the right track-but when things go off the rails, she realises the killer will stop at nothing to destroy her and the people she loves. Can Lady Marigold solve the case before the killer gives her a ticket to ride?

Vaudeville actress Leah Randall took on her most daring role ever when she impersonated missing heiress Jessie Carr in order to claim Jessie's inheritance in The Impersonator. Now that the dust has settled around that tumultuous time in her life, Leah has adopted Jessie's name as her own and moved to Hollywood, where she's taken a modest but steady job in the silent film industry. Jessie's thrilled when Bruno Heilmann, a movie studio bigwig, invites her to a party. She's even more delighted to run into a face from her past at that party. But the following day, Jessie learns that sometime in the wee hours of the morning both her old friend and Bruno Heilmann were brutally murdered. She's devastated, but with her skill as an actress, access to the wardrobes and resources of a film studio, and a face not yet famous enough to be recognized, Jessie is uniquely positioned to dig into the circumstances surrounding these deaths. But will doing so put her own life directly in the path of a murderer? With Silent Murders, MB/MWA First Crime Novel Competition winner Mary Miley has crafted another terrifically fun mystery, this time set in the dizzying, dazzling heart of jazz-age Hollywood.

Death on the Isle of Love by Emily Queen Pdf

Sun, sand, and of course--murder. At long last, lady detective Rosemary Lillywhite and her best friend Vera are on their way to a much-needed holiday, and they’re not traveling alone. Rosemary’s impish brother, Frederick, on sabbatical from work at their father’s company, wouldn't dream of missing out on a tropical getaway—or or the chance to push his sister's buttons! To that end, Frederick invites his longtime chum—Rosemary's childhood crush, Desmond Cooper—along for the trip. If a little romance mends her broken heart, so much the better. Except, Rosemary has already begun to find interest in another man—dashing detective Max Whittington, who isn't thrilled about being left behind in London while she gallivants about in sunny Cyprus. The Aphrodite Sands hotel seems like the perfect place to relax and forget her troubles, but unfortunately death seems to follow Rosemary wherever she goes—even as far as the Isle of Love. When another body turns up, she's compelled to find the culprit, especially if it means putting romance on the back burner. The only problem is, both Max and Desmond have their eyes on the prize, and neither are willing to let sleeping dogs lie. Rosemary will have to decide which burns brighter—a new match or an old flame. Book three in The Mrs. Lillywhite Investigates series. Are you ready to escape to the roaring twenties? For fans of Beth Byers, Leighann Dobbs, Lee Strauss, and cozy historical murder mysteries. A light, cozy mystery with no swearing, graphic scenes, or cliffhangers.

The Murder Next Door by Emily Queen Pdf

How well do you ever really know your neighbors? During the five years Rosemary has lived next door to Dr. Redberry and his wife, they've barely exchanged more than occasional pleasantries. So when she starts hearing raised voices through the adjoining townhouse walls, she can only guess that their marriage is in trouble. It's none of Rosemary's business, so she pretends not to notice, but when she sees Mrs. Redberry sobbing uncontrollably she can't simply turn a blind eye. Somehow, Rosemary ends up attending her best friend, actress Vera Blackburn's latest play alongside the couple--and it turns out to be more enjoyable than she'd expected. Unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished, and when a dead body turns up in Dr. Redberry's dental chair, she finds herself being pulled even further into her neighbor's affairs--and cursing her soft heart! The only thing is, she and her friends are supposed to be leaving for a holiday in sunny Cyprus--not sifting through evidence a stone's throw from home. With romantic feelings for her late husband's best mate, detective Max Whittington, bubbling to the surface, nobody needs to get away as much as Rosemary does! Yet, she can't escape the visceral need to see justice served, so sun and sand will have to wait as this lady detective takes the case of the murder next door.

In 1917, Jessie Carr, fourteen years old and sole heiress to her family's vast fortune, disappeared without a trace. Now, years later, her uncle Oliver Beckett thinks he's found her: a young actress in a vaudeville playhouse is a dead ringer for his missing niece. But when Oliver confronts the girl, he learns he's wrong. Orphaned young, Leah's been acting since she was a toddler. Oliver, never one to miss an opportunity, makes a proposition—with his coaching, Leah can impersonate Jessie, claim the fortune, and split it with him. The role of a lifetime, he says. A one-way ticket to Sing Sing, she hears. But when she's let go from her job, Oliver's offer looks a lot more appealing. Leah agrees to the con, but secretly promises herself to try and find out what happened to the real Jessie. There's only one problem: Leah's act won't fool the one person who knows the truth about Jessie's disappearance. Set against a Prohibition-era backdrop of speakeasies and vaudeville houses, Mary Miley's Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Competition winner The Impersonator will delight readers with its elaborate mystery and lively prose.
