Publisher Comments:

From the author of the successful White House Chef mysteries.

Everyone wants a piece of millionaire Bennett Marshfield, owner of Marshfield Manor, but now it's up to a new curator Grace Wheaton and handsome groundskeeper Jack Embers to protect dear old Marshfield. But to do this, they'll have to investigate a botched Ponzi scheme, some torrid Wheaton family secrets-and sour grapes out for revenge.

Review:

"Launching the Manor of Murder series with plenty of thrills and laughs, Hyzy (the White House Chef mysteries) creates the well-researched and believable estate of Marshfield Manor, part mansion and part museum. As assistant curator Grace Wheaton is handling a loud disturbance in the tea room, gunshots ring out from the fourth floor. Head curator Abe is killed, and the murderer mysteriously vanishes from the study. When billionaire Bennett Marshfield reveals that he's been receiving threatening letters from someone who might be the killer, Grace undertakes an amateur investigation, which includes looking into a local Ponzi scheme and her own family secrets. Well-drawn characters like busybody secretary Frances, handsome landscape architect Jack, and stalking wannabe PI Ronny are supported by lively subplots, laying series groundwork to rival Marshfield Manor's own elaborate structure. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Grace Under Pressure was my first exposure to Julie Hyzy, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hyzy gives us a detective cozy in the traditional English manor house setting but with less conventional characters. There are plots and subplots -- romances, fraud, petty rivalries and family intrigues.


Well crafted, witty and engrossing, Grace Under Pressure is a book that I'd recommend to cozy lovers everywhere. I look forward to the next installment in the Manor House Mysteries.
