Historical Mysteries

Murder at the Manor House

Murder at the Manor House is the first book in my Sleuthing Starlet mysteries.

Murder. Manor homes. Malfunctioning chandeliers.

Hollywood actresses are supposed to be happily on set in sunny California, and not trapped in drafty manor houses during ferocious snowstorms.

But when Cora Clarke is dismissed from her latest role, she accepts her friend’s offer to visit England.

Unfortunately the holiday turns nightmarish when a chandelier crashes down on somebody. The presence of condescending aristocrats in no manner improves the situation. After suspicion falls on her friend, Cora vows to figure out who the murderer is.
After all, blizzards have a habit of preventing the police from arriving, and body counts have a dreadful habit of growing.
