I enjoyed reading this book. I laughed out loud at times. I thought the mystery was entertaining. I loved Lady Phil, her lady’s maid Lily, and butler Preswick. I don’t know much about Lily’s past, but she’s not your average lady’s maid. Preswick is a typical butler, but I do like a good butler in a story. They were great characters. Bev was a hoot. They were fun and ready to assist Lady Phil when needed. Detective Sergeant Atkins is appealing. Mmmm.
However, there are a few adult comments in the story!
