A high society murder. A spirited lady detective. Can she out-class the killer before an innocent person takes the fall? London, 1923. Olive Belgrave needs a job. Despite her aristocratic upbringing, she's penniless. Determined to support herself, she jumps at an unconventional job-looking into the background of her cousin's fianc, Alfred. Alfred burst into the upper crust world of London's high society, but his answers to questions about his past are decidedly vague. Before Olive can gather more than the basics, a murder occurs at a posh party. Suddenly, every Bright Young Person in attendance is a suspect, and Olive must race to find the culprit because a sly murderer is determined to make sure Olive's first case is her last. Murder at Archly Manor is the first in the High Society Lady Detective series of charming historical cozy mysteries. If you like witty banter, glamorous settings, and delightful plot twists, you'll love USA Today bestselling author Sara Rosett's series for Anglophiles and mystery lovers alike.Travel back to the Golden Age of detective fiction with Murder at Archly Manor.

While not at the level of achievement I see with the Masie Dobbs series (IMHO), still an entertaining British cozy. Unemployed former society girl looking for income successfully performs some family detective work. I‘m glad I listened on audio as I feel the narrator‘s voice lent a bit more interest, particularly since I rarely read/enjoy cozies (I like my #mystery with a bit more grit). But all in all, an enjoyable listen. 3/5 ⭐️

Finished listening to this romp of a high society murder, including a determined female detective in 1923, post WWI, when jazz, cocktails & riotous parties were the norm. Reminiscent of The Great Gatsby. Easy listening.

#bfc:1 book finished, so far 2.10 mile walk yesterday. Hope to fit another walk in today.
