MURDER AT THE MANSION by Shelia Connolly

THE SECRET STAIR CASE: released date August 24


I have enjoyed everything thing I read by Sheila Connolly and the first book of the Victoria Village Mystery did not disappoint. The characters are developed and the area will place you right there. You could feel the town was in decline and the beautiful Mansion on the outskirts of town. Katherine Hamilton has returned to her hometown, Asheford, Maryland to consult if the town had assets to turn the direction it is going around. Katherine falls in love with the Civil War Mansion and can see a destination Victorian village in its future. While she was exploring the Mansion, the body of her high school enemy is found just outside it. Katherine must find the answer to the death before the plan to change before it can move forward. She moves into a B&B in town in order to be on site. Strange things are occurring at the Mansion and the B&B that scare her. The ending will surprise. I like the way the book is connected with Museum series.
