Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ellie Haskell—the formerly plump girl turned Thin Woman, happily married mother of three, Gothic romance addict, and sometime sleuth—is back!

When her in-laws invite her to Yorkshire moors, Ellie cant resist. The name “Cragstone House” just sounds so much like the delightfully musty manors she reads about in books! And so she and her husband set off for Yorkshire, accompanied by their irrepressible housekeeper and co-conspirator in crime solving, Mrs. Roxie Malloy. But things at Cragstone turn out far less idyllic than Ellie expected. First  the kindly cook, Mrs. Cake, suffers a mysterious fall down the stairs. Then a visiting vicar meets his death after drinking a cup of tea. Ellie has always thought it would be wonderful to be the heroine of a Gothic romance…but now shes beginning to wonder: Will she and Roxie be able to solve the mystery and get out of Brontë country alive? Or has Ellie reached the tragic dead end of her own fairy tale?

“One of the year's funniest and most engaging mysteries.”—Elizabeth Peters, New York Times bestselling author of the Amelia Peabody mysteries

“A veritable meringue of a book, light and crisp and airy, but with enough of a puzzle to engage and entertain the reader.”—Denver Post

 

 

Synopsis:

Sleuth Ellie Haskell sets off to Yorkshire to investigate strange events at Cragstone House, a family estate that resembles the menacing, musty manors she loves to read about in books. Martin's Press.
