The WISE Enquiries Agency 4th book is another nifty mystery. The Agency consists of 5 women of various backgrounds of all walks of life. They have banded together to investigate crimes that police are unable to handle. Three of the women are concern that Annie may be involved with a serial wife killer. They set out to find out all the information about her suitor. This plot is set against a background of the annual croquet tournament held at the Chellingworth, the home of the Duke of Twyst. The grounds of where the tournament bare to be held suddenly has a mole problem. At a tea at the estate, many guests come down with stomach upsets. The next day, a much loved retired physician is found poison. The WISE women need to locate answers for the stomach upsets, the moles destroying the croquet grounds and letting Annie know about her suitor. Christine and Alexander are in Ireland at her family home. They find a problem of bootlegging potcheen(beer) at the manor. Christine asked WISE woman to help find the background of the residents of the area. This story makes an interesting read and found it difficult to stop reading until I finished. The earlier books of this series are on my TBR list. I highly recommend this book and series.
Disclosure: I received a free copy from Severn House through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review this book. The opinions expressed are my own.
Glad you liked this book.
This sounds like a good book. I like the idea that there are so many threads to the plot and most are centered around the manor.
I think Severn House has a lot of good mysteries. They are becoming one of my favorite publishers. I want to read more of this series
It is one that I am auto approved with–another plus.
They have some excellent books. Too bad their e-book cost is so high, probably something to do with a British firm.
