Wednesday, November 13, 2019

This tale of a very dysfunctional family will keep you intrigued as the two detectives attempt to discover what happened to the missing heiress--and to figure out how she escaped from a locked room!! Both her parents have died and her step brother, who is now head of the family is absolutely the cruelest human being you would ever want to meet--her step sister is no better!

Although there is violence the two detectives take everything one step at a time--and does remind me of Watson and Holmes! A very well written book that will keep you guessing and guessing and guessing some more!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Northumberland, 1809: A beautiful young heiress disappears from her locked bedchamber at Linn Hagh.

The local constables are baffled and the townsfolk cry ‘witchcraft’.

The heiress’s uncle summons help from Detective Lavender and his assistant, Constable Woods, who face one of their most challenging cases: The servants and local gypsies aren’t talking; Helen’s siblings are uncooperative; and the sullen local farmers are about to take the law into their own hands.

Lavender and Woods find themselves trapped in the middle of a simmering feud as they uncover a world of family secrets, intrigue and deception in their search for the missing heiress.

Taut, wry and delightful, The Heiress of Linn Hagh is a rollicking tale featuring Lavender and Woods—a double act worthy of Holmes and Watson.

Revised edition: This edition of The Heiress of Linn Hagh includes editorial revisions.
