"Amory Ames and her rakish husband Milo might just be the new Nick and Nora Charles." --Deborah Crombie

It was amazing, really, what murder had done for my marriage . . .

Following the murderous events at the Brightwell Hotel, Amory Ames is looking forward to a tranquil period of reconnecting with her reformed playboy husband, Milo. She hopes a quiet stay at their London flat will help mend their relationship. However, Amory soon finds herself drawn into another investigation when an old friend of her mother's asks her to look into the disappearance of valuable jewelry snatched at a dinner party.

Amory agrees to help lay a trap to catch the culprit at a lavish masked ball. But when one of the illustrious party guests is murdered, she is pulled back into the world of detection, caught up in both a mystery and a set of romantic entanglements where nothing is as it seems.

The second book in the Amory Ames Mystery series

Mar 11, 2016

I enjoyed the book, it went pretty quickly. Like other reviewers I have a theory about what Amory's hubby is up to. I also found it odd that there was never any mention of the war. Every British anything I've read or seen about the 30s mentions THE WAR. Still it has a quick pace and lots going on. A good rainy day read!

Ashley Weaver hits another home run with her second book. She is one of my favorite authors. Her books are well written, interesting, fabulous characters. Great story mystery story telling without any unnecessary gore.

This sequel to 'Murder at the Brightwell' is just as enjoyable as the first installment in the series--it's a 1930s English society mystery, featuring a great protagonist in socialite and amateur sleuth Amory Ames (an her playboy husband, Milo). If you like the Victorian mysteries of Tasha Alexander or Deanna Raybourn, but are in search of a slightly more updated setting, try this series. I'm eagerly anticipating book 3 -- in no small part because I want to know whether my pet theory about what Milo's really up to is true...
