Death at Timberly (Lucy Belling and Maude Grimsworth Series Book 1)
Maithili Pradhan, author
It's the tail end of summer in 1930 and Lucy Belling and Maude Grimsworth head to the Timberly Estate for what promises to be a lively house party hosted by their dear friends, Lord and Lady Hemming. But what starts off as a perfectly fine – if awkward – gathering of friends and family quickly turns into a complete washout when thunderstorms trap the ill-assorted guests in the house, tempers flare, and the host turns up dead. Now Lucy and Maude must put their wits to the test to help the tall, dark, and handsome Detective Inspector solve the crime – before he pins it on one of their friends! This classic country house murder mystery will appeal to fans of period fiction from Agatha Christie to Downton Abbey.
