This is a fun and quick read. These are new to me authors who have hit the mark.
Sir Harry Mortimer and his new American wife, Katherine (Kat) have returned to England from Cairo. Kat and Harry have been working for their respective governments. Each of them have been doing work which is not exactly a match to their job descriptions. They both seek facts in interesting ways.
They are going to live in the dower house on the grounds at Mydworth Manor. Things do not go as planned.
Before they even get to see Harry’s Aunt Lavinia, there is a murder, a body falls out of a second story window and many shots are fired.
Lavinia has been having a house party with only the best people as guests. The dead body is her former driver. His pockets are filled with jewels. That fact leads to many suspects.
The investigation by Kat and Harry is fast moving and very informative. Many of the people who are involved in the mystery, know Harry from the past. That gives Harry background knowledge. Kat has experience in asking questions, that gives her a helpful skill.
There is humor throughout the story. The mystery is well done.
This is the first in a series, so the reader gets a good amount of background information.
I liked this story and I look forward to seeing the next book in the series.
The Mydworth Mysteries is an excellent series, well crafted by two male writers, one English and one American.
Centered around Sir Harry and his Bronx born wife, the books are fast moving cozy mysteries set the English post War era when England and the landed gentry were slowly coming to grips with the fact that things were changing from the prior era.
Sir Harry, having served in the War and his wife Kat who had served in the ambulance corp in France were then seconded by their respective governments to the intelligence services.
This history provides an excellent foundation upon which the series grow.
Today I found myself without anything to read. Or at least something that I really wanted to read. At last I thought about my Kindle. Lucky me. I found A Shot in the Dark. I loved the characters. I liked the fact that it was a mixed marriage. An Englishman and an American woman. I especially loved the time period, as well as the location. Most of all, I loved Kat. A very complaint lady. Now I have to find some more of these books to enjoy.
I love the Cherringham cozy mystery series and the same 2 authors write the Mydworth Mysteries. Cherringham has Jack the American and Sarah the Brit, and Mydworth has Sir Harry of the British Empire and his American wife, Kat. It will be interesting to see if Neil Dudgeon also narrates the Mydworth audiobooks when they become available. I enjoyed the story but being very familiar with Cherringham, I couldn’t help noticing some of the similarities. Since the story is set in 1929 instead of 2019, Harry and Kat won’t be able to hack the internet, but just as Sarah has her mysterious friend in London who is able to dig up dirt on anybody about anything, Harry has his mysterious friend in London to help him with information crucial to the case. Jack has his beloved Sprite and Harry has his Alvis. Cherringham has Lady Repton and Mydworth has Lady Lavinia. If you like the Cherringham stories you will most likely enjoy Mydworth as well.
Good development of likable, interesting characters was my first impression, but I soon was enjoying the descriptive scene setting and a reasonably enticing plot. The unexpected ending entices me to read the next in the series!
90 years before Jack first met Sarah on the deck of his Dutch barge and the birth of the crime busting friendship, another couple, in reversed country’s of birth, embark on a mystery solving partnership in the heart of England. With the world of 1929 lacking today’s technology its social divides and values make for an entertaining read. Follow Kat and Harry as their new lives together are filled with questions to answer and puzzles to solve. Another great gift from the Richards and Costello team.
I wasn’t sure about this book but as I got into the story really enjoyed it. What put me off to start with is when the characters speak you get umm at the end of their conversation that I don’t like . But apart from that I really enjoyed it. I like books set in an a different period especially this period .
This was such an awesome story to get caught up in. Fun characters and excellent plot. I loved the action parts at the end also. Kept me interested all the way from start to end and left me wanting more. Looking forward to the next book. Thanks for helping keep me interested in something other than the Covid-19 stuff and my mind on pleasant stuff for awhile. Got to try your first series also. Didn't know about those books tell the end of this book. Tell next time stay well and keep writing you are good writers!
Mydworth Mysteries, A Shot in the Dark by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards was a terrific English Manor cozy mystery. Lord Harry Mortimer returns to his home in Mydworth with his new American wife, but there home is not quite ready. They stayed with his aunt who has guests. A man is shot escaping from a jewelry heist. Auntie asks Harry to look into the murder. Excellent plot. Lovable characters. I loved it.
