5.0 out of 5 stars "Death at Sandringham House" Dec 22 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this book very much. Being from that part of the world originally, I enjoyed the author's use of the East Anglian vernacular. Good mystery and hard to put down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Imagine the Queen, solving a murder mystery! Sept. 9 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book because I thought the plot would be quite interesting. It is about the Queen, solving a murder mystery with the help of Jane Bee who is a housemaid, working for the Queen. The story takes place in the time between Christmas and New Year when the Royal family spends some time at Sandringham House. But when the body of a woman that looks exactly like the Queen is found in the village the quiet days are over. Jane who is present when the body is found is interested in the case and so is the Queen, especially because the tiara the woman is wearing had been stolen a long time ago. The Queen asks Jane to keep eyes and ears open for her and soon Jane finds out that there are many suspects. But before they can solve this mystery a second body is found. This second body gives the Queen all the clues she needed, to know who the murderer is and so on New Years Eve she is able to solve the mystery.
What I really liked about this book was the story. This book is 100% fictional and not based on a true story or the real characters but I really loved to imagine the Queen in the role of Sherlock Holmes. The story itself is not about the Queen, the heroine is Jane Bee and as the reader you'll always get her point of view and insight in her thoughts only. Till the end she doesn't know who the murderer is and so the reader doesn't know either but you can guess with her who did it.
Still I rated this book with three stars because the whole story was too fantastic to be true. To start with, the idea of the Queen, discussing a murder case with a housemaid, is very strange but without this idea there would be no story so you just have to accept it. Then many suspects talked too much and too freely about what had happened to Jane. If I were a suspect I wouldn't talk to a stranger about it at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars another fun one from C.C.Benison Jan. 31 2000
By Julie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although I didn't enjoy this as much as "Death at Buckingham Palace", it was still alot of fun. I love all the slang! I grew up with a fair amount of British television and didn't find the slang hard to understand, but I think some would. It would be nifty if the author provided a glossary of some of the more obscure terms, which are also some of the funniest. I realize, though, that authors rarely do this. Once again, I found the characters interesting (although maybe a little less believable), the plot complex and hard-to-figure-out and the descriptions fun. I have to agree with some of the reviewers here in that I found the plot not as riveting as either of her two other works. Still, a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Three June 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this one. I loved the winter setting in Norfolk and the descriptions of the royal get-away residence. Loved "Margo" and "Lilibet." Very comic stuff. Benison does a great job of sending up the Brits, and giving some humanity to the over-criticized Royal Family. Great stuff!

Much weaker plot than the first book in this series, which was quite "amusing." The author includes heaps of unnecessary comments, Brit jargon, meaningless yakkety-yak which distracts the reader. I am now reading #3 inthe series, Death at Windsor, with hope.....
