Murder at the Wedding (Miss Underhay #7)


Murder at the Wedding is the 7th Miss Underhay cozy by Helena Dixon. Released 6th Oct 2021, it's 277 pages and is available in paperback, audio, and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers, this book is currently included in the KU subscription library to borrow and read for free.

This is an engagingly well written classic country house murder set in the interwar period in the north of England. Kitty and her intrepid maid/companion/sidekick Alice are off to Kitty's cousin's wedding and it's not long before a murder shows up to disrupt all their well laid plans. When Kitty's friend Matt arrives, they help one another investigate. There are several disparate subplot threads which entwine to a satisfying denouement and resolution. 

This is a consistently well written and entertaining modern classic English mystery series with well wrought characters and clever plots. The dialogue is well written and never clunky or overwrought. 

Well worth a look for mystery lovers and fans of the golden age.  I really enjoyed it.

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
