I have just finished reading a cozy mystery I really enjoyed. It’s called A Quiet Life in the Country, and it is the first in a series of seven by T E Kinsey. It has no genealogy aspect. It is a traditional style amateur sleuth in a small village story, but with a few twists.
It takes place in 1908, and the sleuths are Lady Hardcastle and Florence Armstrong, her lady’s maid. Florence narrates the story, and gradually reveals that the two women have a history as some sort of international spies. They have just moved to a peaceful English village for a relaxing retirement, but of course they end up solving a murder.
The book is well crafted and cleverly written, and the friendship between the two women is delightful. I plan to read more of their adventures. I found it a quick and entertaining read, and if you like that sort of thing, as I do, then I heartily recommend it. You can purchase it here.
