I liked this story much better than the first. The beginning was suspenseful and caught my interest. I wanted to keep reading to find out who’d done the murder. Happy that I have the complete series and can read them one after the other without waiting for the library to get them. Between Midsomer Murders, Agatha Raisin and Mydworth mysteries you’re taking your life in your hands if you want to live in a “peaceful” English village.
Series: Mydworth Mysteries #2 Publication Date: 9/30/19 Number of Pages: 119
American Kat Reilly and Brit Sir Harry Mortimer are beginning to settle into their new life together in Mydworth. Kat is still a bit concerned that life in the quiet English countryside will be too quiet – especially since she’s not too fond of afternoon teas and other gentrified activities. Luckily, they’ve managed to keep busy with some local investigations – so maybe things won’t be too dull.
As much as Kat loved spending time admiring Harry working on his old motorbike that had been in storage since the war, she was really happy when their new phone rang. Nicola Green, from the WVS (Women’s Voluntary Service), was calling to ask Kat and Harry to stop by her office because she needed to speak with them.
The mother of a young poacher, Syd Buckman, doesn’t believe that her son died in an accident. Yes, the police have ruled that it was an accident, but she just doesn’t believe it. Her son was too good with guns to make such a rudimentary mistake. So, she approached Nicola and asked for her help and advice. Nicola, in turn, contacted Kat and Harry because of their reputations for solving mysteries.
At first, Kat and Harry were inclined to believe it really was an accident – but the more they learned, the more they became sure that Syd’s death wasn’t accidental. Why would anyone want to kill the young man? There are plenty of potential suspects around – other poachers, the owner of the land on which he was poaching, the land steward, a friend with whom he’d had an argument, even his father.
The investigation continues apace and leads in many directions – until at last, the final clues are revealed and the murder is finally solved.
I am really enjoying this series that reminds me a bit of the old Thin Man movies with the lighthearted banter between Kat and Harry – except Kat is more of a fully participating partner than Nora was in the movies. Definitely an entertaining read!
I enjoy this series. It's not overly complicated, but the plots are always intriguing. The two protagonists are smart and brave. One of the main characters hails from England, the site of the stories, and the other from America. The contrast works nicely.
Overall, I would recommend these stories to persons who enjoy light, historical mysteries. The only negative aspect of these books for me is that I find them a little short. I would love to have a but more detail. It has everything it needs, however, for a nice couple of hours of mysterious distraction.
Bit lacking in setting the surroundings and characters. Obviously never seen a Lee Enfield. You can't reaching trigger with your finger with the muzzle against any part of your body and if you shot yourself the empty cartridge would still be in the breech. Soldiers committing suicide in the trenches in ww1 would remove their boot and fire with their big toe. No-one used to guns would carry a live round in the chamber over rough ground at night. Simple to press your thumb on the top cartridge and close the bolt on an empty chamber ( no use shooting at anyone to escape, remember in these times killing meant hanging, poaching a fine or prison.)
I LOVE a good book series. I love a good book series based in the UK. I love a good book series that includes murder, mystery, humor, strong female characters and that are well written!! This new book series 'Mydworth Mysteries' is my perfect book series.
Harry and Kat, Sir Harry and Lady Katherine, have moved into the Dower house in book two. Everything is going great until Kat is cajoled into taking a meeting with a woman who helps other woman who may be in need of counsel. She asks the pair to help one of her clients who's son was accidentally shot- while poaching deer. Working as a team, Harry and Kat set out to find answers in the accidental shooting death of this young man. His mother does not believe he accidentally shot himself, she believes it was murder, and she wants the truth.
Excellent writing! Terrific story from beginning until The end. The opening chapter was AMAZING and had me a little bit scared! So so good!
Can Sir Harry and his new wife,Kat, stalk the poaching son's murderer? They meet their walls in the rich and powerful and in the drunken slobs, but they persist by following the path clues. Be ready for a surprise!
I think that this book was really good. I do wish that they could have said it who the murderer was, but to know that the Head Estate guy had killed someone else in another town and gotten away with it for some years, was interesting. The dead boy's father was just a drunk bully who thought that women were stupid and could not defend ourselves. I wish Kat had shown Billy the bully just what she had learned while working for her country, then Billy would be quiet.
