Murder at Hartigan House: a 1920s cozy historical mystery (A Ginger Gold Mystery Book 2) Kindle Edition
"Clever and entertaining, you'll love this charming Golden Age mystery series. And the fashion is to die for!" - Molly C. Quinn, actress, Castle
"I rank Lee Strauss as the best living cozy mystery writer. Her characters are believable but interesting, her stories are fun to follow and her use of language is superb. She makes the 1920s come alive in my imagination. I constantly read cozies and Lee's Lady Gold Mysteries are the very best." - LoriLynn, Amazon reviewer
"Another deftly crafted mystery by the master of the genre..." Midwest Book Review--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Lady Ginger Gold arrives at her family home in England with Haley Higgins and Boss, her dog. They have disembarked from the SS Rosa and are very curious to find out what the "GHASTLY DISCOVERY IN ATTIC OF HARTIGAN HOUSE" from the telegram received from her Butler, Pippins, is all about. A decomposed body is not it!
This is Book 2 in the series and it was a very entertaining read. Ginger is such delightful character with a heart of gold. Fashionable, knowledgeable and highly clever perfectly describes her, along with a dash of mystery. Having Inspector Basil Reed on the case also adds a little spark to the investigation. He is finding Lady Gold is always that one step ahead of him or getting underfoot! I am enjoying their chemistry as they work together trying to solve who the body is as well as the murderer. To the Inspector's consternation, Ginger decides to host a soiree with all the same individuals who attended her father's party in 1913 before closing up Hartigan House. It isn't long before another party goer is dead.
There are a fair number of suspects in this case. I determinded the first murderer but wasn't sure of all the details. I did, however, figure out the second one soon enough. There is more going on within this series than just a murder/mystery that will keep you coming back. So if you are looking for a little bit of mystery with a dash of fashion, I do recommend this series!
She's hooked on this series and hopes the writer will release more stories in large print format.

There is a but though, some things that seem to me to be the result of sloppy research. Constant references to
London City; I've worked in London and lived near it most of my life and I have never heard it referred to as London City. The City of London is specifically "the square mile", in the time this book is set you might have heard London Town.
Did they really have refrigerated drawers for corpses in morgues at this time? And other things, probably not important and possibly I am mistaken, but I found them irritant.
