There she will become nursemaid, chaperone and confidante to the Mitford sisters, especially sixteen-year-old Nancy, an acerbic, bright young woman in love with stories. But then a nurseFlorence Nightingale Shore, goddaughter of her famous namesakeis killed on a train in broad daylight, and Louisa and Nancy find themselves entangled in the crimes of a murderer who will do anything to hide their secret... Based on an unsolved crime and written by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey companion books, The Mitford Murders is the perfect new obsession for fans of Daisy Goodwin, Downton Abbey, and classic murder mysteries.

This was an interesting read. Very in line with Agatha Christie. I liked the little hints that Hark to other writers, like the lawyers address on Baker Street and the man in the brown suit. A fun mystery that I enjoyed reading. I liked all the twists. 4*

Expecting cozy Downton-ish mystery. From the get go I had issues. Rambled with many viewpoints. Couldn't figure out who the protagonist was supposed to be. Almost most Bailed. Found out was actually based on real life people.
I know nothing of the actual Nancy Mitford. Book version is a self centered whiner. That's the problem I have with Historical Fiction based on Real Life people. What's true and what's not?

Crinoline_Laphroaig BIGGEST PROBLEM - author took a Real Life Person; who was never accused or even a suspect and made them the murderer. There's something so wrong with that.

Doubt I will read any more of this series. If I do, it would definitely be Borrow don't Buy.

mrsmarch @ashley_o13 My 6 year old took the Pottermore sorting hat quiz and it put her in Ravenclaw, which makes sense if you think of her as a Luna Lovegood type Ravenclaw 🦅 💙🧡. I don‘t know where the baby will sort to, but I am beginning to suspect Slytherin. 🐍 💚🖤 3y
ashley_o13 @mrsmarch that's so cute she looks like a ravenclaw lol and I'm guessing the little one has a little evil side ? And I thought my 9 year old was too young to do the Pottermore sorting hat quiz I'm going to have him take it! 3y
mrsmarch @ashley_o13 I walked River through the quiz when she was 4 because I couldn‘t wait another second. And her patronus was specifically a stray cat, which again, if you knew her IRL, is totally accurate. Cleo is adorably evil, but she has the classic Slytherin strive-for-greatness drive. If she isn‘t Slytherin, she‘s a Gryffindor, because she‘s 💯 a long-lost Weasley. 3y
ashley_o13 @mrsmarch aw! That's so cute! I'm definitely having Brayden do it tomorrow! I feel like he could definitely be Slytherin or Ravenclaw his personality is so in between them. When he takes it I'll let you know what he gets ! 3y

Set in the 1920s, this is the first in the Mitford sisters mystery series. I‘ve yet to read this one, but Downton Abbey fans will note the name Fellowes and it‘s connection to the series (the creator‘s daughter). The 1920s puts me in the #SwingTheMood ...a time of flappers and the beginning of laissez faire thoughts and dreams.

Thank you to @squirrelbrain and @Cinfhen for a fun #ayupaugust month!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. A fabulous historical mystery set in the early 1920s with the Mitford sisters as a center point. I had never heard of the Mitfords before this but they seem fascinating! The mystery angle was fantastic and I didn‘t see the end coming at all. Fellowes did a wonderful job weaving fact and fiction together and I can‘t wait to read the second book in the series!

I find the Mitford sisters fascinating so the title of this historical fiction drew my interest. It was a great book to read while traveling. It is based on a real life case. I liked Louisa, the nursery maid turned amateur detective and the case kept me guessing. I had a small issue with the ending but I won't say what so as not to spoil it. I'm happy to see it is a series and look forward to book 2.

rretzler I didn‘t realize this was actually based on the real Mitfords! 4y
MallenNC @rretzler Only loosely. They're children in this one, Nancy is the only one with much of a part in it, but that may change in the other books. 4y

The book's annotation spoke of the infamous #Mitford sisters. I was intrigued! But... It was a classic English detective with a well-built story and interesting characters! I don't quite understand why the annotation mentioned the Mitford sisters' scandals?! 😕 In the book, all the sisters are children except the eldest Nancy! Perhaps to be continued?

After 2 bails earlier today, I completed my third book of 2019 and started my 4th. I was planning on using this for #booked2019 #femaleDetective but 16yr old Nancy Mitford really doesn‘t qualify as a detective. However book works fine for #pop19 #amateurdetective🕵🏻‍♀️I‘d call this a British cozy with traces of Miss Marple & Maisie Dobbs. It was a perfectly fine mystery with some nice twists & interesting historical content. (1920s England)

#MondayMystery #ReadingResolutions
The Mitford Murders is fun, engrossing,& full of intrigue & murder. Set in 1920 England,the novel contrasts the lives of the Mitford‘s impoverished nursemaid Louise Cannon, and the upper class 16 year old Nancy Mitford. A War nurse is murdered on a train & both girls get caught up in solving the case. Issues deriving from poverty such as child exploitation(used for pickpocketing,sex) & class are explored.

I'm actually quite annoyed that this book was published. Pedestrian writing, completely lacking in wit, unbelievable "mystery" with far too many convenient connections and unconvincing motivations. I'm sure the Mitford connection was only used as a selling point, the characters bore little relationship to the documented Mitford personalities other than occasional well known idiosyncrasies of speech shoe-horned in every now and then. Ugh!!!???

This book was fascinating because it wove fact with fiction. I had no idea that it was based on a true story. I'm a fan of British Historical Mysteries so, I enjoyed the mystery then reading the author notes I learned that there was a notorious Florence Nightingale Shore murder. It's had several plots going, so it kept the storyline moving along for me. This is the first book of a series. I look forward to next book!

ferskner @Jess_Read_This Yes it is! The author has written a bunch of Downton Abbey nonfiction, and you can tell that really informs this book. I'd be willing to read another novel of hers in the future, but this needed more polishing. 5y
