ABSENCE OF ALICE – December 29
For a light and relaxing read checked out the first in the historical series featuring Olive Belgrave, a penniless socialite through a misfortune, not her fault. The series takes place in the early 1920’s set in London. The writing flows easily and there even e characters are developed. This book took me back when I was reading about Miss Silver. It is similar in style.
Olive accepts an offer from an Aunt to look into the history of a gentleman that her daughter, Violet is determined to marry. Along with another cousin, Gwen the three of them attend is invited to a weekend house party. at a count estate. While there Violet’s fiance is tossed off a balcony and is killed. Evidence points to Violet and Olive become involved with the investigation. Plenty of twists and turns to hold your attention. There is even a romance starting. Will Olive find the answer to prevent Violet from being arrested? There are several suspects with motives. I highly recommend this book.
