Euphemia is staying at the grand house of Hans Muller as companion to Richenda Stapleford. It seems that Richenda has her sights set on him as a potential husband but Muller seems more interested in Euphemia herself and his mother definitely would prefer Euphemia as a daughter in law.

Wherever Euphemia goes there is a mystery and the mystery in this book is what happened to Muller's first wife? Richard Stableford seems determined to convince his sister that Muller murdered his first wife.
When Lucy, the maid, agrees to sell Euphemia some information about what really happened to the late Mrs Muller her curiosity is aroused and she starts to ask questions.

I enjoyed reading this entertaining instalment of Euphemia's escapades and thought that this was probably the best in the series so far. Euphemia herself is always good value and Richenda is turning in to a more rounded and interesting characters - apart from her unfortunate resemblance to a horse!

If you're looking for a crime series with a historical background with a certain amount of humour and a feisty narrator then you could do worse than try this series. The books can be read as standalone novels and as a series.

I enjoyed the previous books about Euphemia the impoverished granddaughter of an Earl forced to earn her living in service to help support her family. And the dreadful family she is in service too, these murder mysteries are always well written and contain a delicious amount of humour but this on where Euphemia goes as companion to the awful Richenda to a house where Richenda has her eyes set on the owner as a future husband: seems to run out of steam beforethe end. We have murders but they've not fully explained and the end is just left up in the air. Enjoyable but not as good as the previous books

Another witty and entertaining story. I hope sometime in the future that the guilty will be brought to justice and not get away with murder.
