Product Details

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Doran Fairweather's second caper (after Malice Domestic takes her to Warwickshire to track down the theft of priceless antiques from a rather eccentric elderly member of the aristocracy, Lady Timberlake. What starts off as a working holiday with her boyfriend, the prudish Rodney Chelmarsh, quickly turns serious when one of the leads Fairweather is investigating, a gypsy antiques dealer, is brutally murdered. Chelmarsh is the first to realize that Fairweather's own life may be in jeopardy. Hardwick has managed to breathe fresh life into this fairly conventional mystery. Everything is vaguely familiar, from the cast of dotty characters to the locale, but this only adds to the book's charm.

Reviews Here Don't Match Book Sept. 21 2014
By M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Actually, I'm just pointing out that the reviews posted here don't go with the book. The book is by Ludwig Bemelmans about a trip he took to Europe with his daughter and her poodle. Not part of a mystery series, not written by someone named Mollie, as the other reviews say. Something screwed up here. (Bemelmans is the author of the Madeline books for children.)

Fun Mystery Aug. 4 2014
By Anne Berthlot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nothing earthshaking here, just another fun read by Mollie Hardwick to wile away an afternoon in the hammock! Part of a series that I enjoyed since I especially like mysteries.

Reader's Moderate Pleasure Oct. 13 2000
By Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Doran Fairchild, antique dealer, goes away for a few nights with her neighbor, Reverend Rodney Chelmarsh, Vicar of St. Crispin's. The lovers find it difficult to keep the tryst a secret when burglaries, thefts and murders abound.
I enjoyed the Sayers-like references to literature and the Jonathan Gash-like discussion of antiques. However, you should avoid this book if you find it irritating when (1) heroines withhold evidence from the police or (2) heroines, knowing that there is a murderer at large, place themselves in dangerous situations.
