When a brother and sister who have lost all their family wealth in the Crash of 1929 discover they have inherited their Great Uncle Horatio's rural New York mansion, Honeysuckle Cottage, they also learn that their uncle's will requires them to reside in the mansion for ten years before the house is actually theirs. Also, Great Uncle Horatio, who supposedly drowned in a boating accident, may actually have been murdered. The two lead characters set out to discover the truth about their uncle's death. Jill Churchill has begun a wonderful new series set in the 1930's, and I hope the next book is out soon.

Twenty-four year old socialite Lily Brewster and her brother Robert, two years older, are victims of the stock market crash of 1929. Their family money is gone, their father commits suicide. Forced into the practically non-existent job market with little skills and no experience, Lily finds a job in a bank sorting checks, a job she hates. Robert becomes a paid escort or, when the opportunity arises, the maitre d' in one of the posh restaurants such as Café Savarin, Fraunces Tavern, Luchow's, or Algonquin, that have survived the Depression. Rescue from their pitiful existence comes in the form of an entailed inheritance from their Great Uncle Horatio who deeds them his mansion, renamed Grace and Favor Cottage, and his millions if they make Voorburg-on-Hudson their home for ten years. Confirmed New Yorkers, they view this clause as nothing less than exile. However, circumstances being what they are, Lily and Robert take up residence and soon are investigating Uncle Horatio's death, one which looks more and more like murder each day. Anything Goes is a delightful first in a new series with a strong heroine and an endearing hero.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A breezy,easy fun read from front to back. An entertaining mystery with intelligent people and surprises! Likable characters who would fit right in with Agatha Christie's young Tommy and Tuppence. What I liked best was the gentle, mental reminder that "class tells." In a way that is never snobbish, one is reminded of the important yesteryear virtues of finesse and good manners. An example is when the lead female character approaches the subject of the boating accident at the dinner table and then privately berates herself for doing so because one does not discuss death at dinner....where have her social graces slipped! It was a lovely read for that purpose alone, to remember a time when etiquette meant seeing to the niceties and to the comfort of those around you. You care about the characters and the changes in their lives and the mystery that surrounds them and has brought them together. Plus the main spark is that of an interesting, clever mystery that engages you with turns and twists. Hoping more will come along soon!

This is my first Churchill experience and I loved it. The protagonists are fun and charming. She has created a totally delicious world for them to inhabit with vivid interesting characters. The plot was just right too. A couple of murders to solve of course, and with enough clues for the reader to have a fair chance at figuring it out and enough misleading clues to keep it interesting. Its a classic cozy, just right in every way.
