The eighth book in The Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery Series is now out as an eBook!
The Pennyfoot hides many secrets and its downstairs staff keeps a tight lip, even when the Edwardian aristocrats are spotted dallying with damsels in the boudoirs, or gambling in the forbidden card rooms hidden below the floorboards. Should now and then one of the hotel guests fall prey to a dastardly murderer, however, it is up to Cecily Sinclair to restore order before Scotland Yard steps in and shuts down her infamous seaside hotel.
CHIVALRY IS DEAD
Excitement is rife in the English village of Badgers End. A jousting tournament is to be held at the Pennyfoot Hotel in honor of St. George’s Day. The downstairs staff is busy with the preparations, while upstairs Cecily makes sure her guests are aware of the festivities. What she has to hide, however, is the death of a footman, killed by one of the jousting lances. Someone got ahead of the competition and Cecily must find out who that is, before terror reigns at the tournament.
The twenty-first and final Pennyfoot book, MULLED MURDER, one of Kingsbury’s beloved Christmas editions, was published in November 2013 by Berkley Books.
