Product Description

Product Description

The TENTH 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.

DEATH WITH RESERVATIONS



Michel’s cooking is renowned far and wide, and many of the guests patronize the Pennyfoot Hotel simply to enjoy his excellent cuisine. Therefore, when Lord Sittingdon appears to have died from ingesting Michel’s famed lobster salad, the reputation of the hotel is at stake. Cecily is faced with a dilemma that could very well signal the end of her illustrious career. Until circumstances suggest that the aristocrat was murdered, giving her a chance to save the hotel and bring a killer to justice.

The twenty-first and final Pennyfoot book, MULLED MURDER, one of Kingsbury’s beloved Christmas editions, was published in November 2013 by Berkley Books.

Reviews


"The author draws as much from Fawlty Towers as she does from Agatha Christie, crafting a charming…cozy delicately flavored with period details of pre-World War I rural England." --- Publishers Weekly

"Clever and cunning…Delightfully unique and entertaining. A most delicious teatime mystery with just the right atmosphere and a charming cast of characters." ---The Literary Times

"Combines the feel of an Agatha Christie whodunit with a taste of Upstairs, Downstairs." ---Cozy Library

"Kate Kingsbury is the Queen of English cozy mysteries."---Fresh Fiction

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet! 4 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all the Pennyfoot Hotel mysteries having stumbled across them in the library. They are delightful - like a good cream cake and hot cup of tea in the local tea shoppe. Ms. Kingsbury depicts her characters in such a way as to make the reader truly care or revile them - my favorite to revile being the Vicar, who is hopeless. The local constabulary is also without lightbulbs. I hope to see Cecily & Baxter marry eventually. And I hope to see that poor maid with the twins go to Scotland and finally find some happiness. I reccommend these books highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun to read historical mystery 25 Nov 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The winds of social change are in the air, sweeping across Edwardian England in 1908, even reaching isolated villages such as Badger's End location of the famous Pennyfoot Hotel. Two London suffragettes have come to the hotel in order to make one of the guests miserable. Lord Bertram is the judge who sent the pair to prison and insured that they suffered during their incarceration. The duo never has a chance to put their plan into operation as their intended victim is poisoned.
The hotel's owner, Cecily Sinclair and her new partner (business and personal) Baxter cannot help but be concerned with the Lord's death. Food poisoning has been identified as the cause and the hotel is the only place he ate. Cecily begins to investigate, but before she gets very far her gardener dies in a suspicious accident. Cecily soon realizes that there is a plethora of suspects, both staff and guests, who had ample motive to want the judge dead.
The latest installment in the "Pennyfoot Hotel" saga is as delightful and charming as the previous book in the series. Readers are treated to an intriguing who-done-it and a glimpse into a society that is on the verge of enormous change that blurs the line between the gentry and the middle class. The developing relationship between Cecily and Baxter adds spice to a delicious meal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 4 July 2009
By S. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I find the Pennyfoot Hotel series an enjoyable cozy series, and this book is the same. A guest at the hotel appears to die from food poisoning, but Cecily expects something rather more sinister. The mystery in this one is a little simplistic, but I do love the characters and getting to know them more with each new book in the series. These books are a lot of fun to read for anyone who enjoys the cozy genre. But, alas, it appears there are changes on the horizon for at least some of the staff at the Pennyfoot Hotel. I would certainly hate to see the last of Gertie Brown. She is the best character in this series. I look forward to the next book in this interesting and fun series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but a little slow 9 May 2002
By the wolverine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Pennyfoot Hotel book I have read and I will definately read more. The characters are fun, some reminding me of characters in Fawlty Towers, so they seemed like old friends. The mystery is a bit predictable, and the solution rather evident as you get about half way through the book, but there is alot of enjoyment along the way, although it sometimes is a bit disjointed, jumping between characters suddenly. It is a great book if you want something to relax and escape with for awhile.
