Product Description

Product Description

The second book of the bestselling Pennyfoot Hotel 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.

DO NOT DISTURB



A knock on the door in the dead of night, and seconds later, a man lies dead, poisoned by a mysterious substance. Who else to blame but the local herbalist – considered a witch because of her powerful potions. Once again Cecily is called upon to discover the real killer before her best friend is thrown in jail for a crime she simply couldn’t have committed.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Cosy Mystery 28 Jun 2013
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first of the Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery books I have read, and I should point out that the title may throw you off kilter a bit, if like me you are thinking that this is a murder mystery in the hotel. In fact this is a murder mystery in the village where the hotel is located. Set in 1906 this is an enjoyable Edwardian era cosy mystery.

First it starts with the death of a tenant, in the doorway to his cottage. But this is just the first of such murders, where the victims have all been poisoned. But what can the connection between them be, and who is the killer? Cecily Sinclair, the proprietor of the Pennyfoot Hotel, soon finds herself asking questions and being drawn in, especially as a former employer of hers could be on the killer's list.

With a number of unforgettable characters, some red herrings, and a mysterious guest at the hotel there is quite a bit here, and there is some humour thrown in as well. With a lighthouse being built in the area, which is attacked, and the dean men having worked on the site this is a good, entertaining, and engrossing mystery. If you like a good cosy mystery, then this should be just right for you, this is certainly something you can put your feet up with and really enjoy. I for one, will now look at some more of the books in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Charming Read 30 Jun 2013
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As murder mysteries go, this one is quite gentle. Unhurried, and unperturbed by modern detective notions, it moves along at its own pace. There are one or two ancillary stories alongside the main narrative which serve to flesh out the piece a little as well as providing a red herring or two in identifying the murderer. The book put me in mind of Miss Marple in a subdued mood.
There is nothing exciting or blood pressure raising about this book but it is a charming read even so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cosy Mystery 29 Jun 2013
By Ann M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a light and easy read. It features amateur detective Cecily Sinclair the proprietress of the Pennyfoot Hotel. The setting is the south coast of England in the Edwardian era. Although I liked the background setting I didn't get a great sense of period. The plot line concerning the unexplained deaths of three men was a bit thin and not very convincing especially Cecily's blatant interference with a crime scene. However the book features several interesting characters and Cecily is a likeable heroine.

This is the second book in the series and presumably characters and relationships will develop as the series, which to date numbers twenty, progresses. This is the only book in the series I have read so the plots may well get stronger. It does remind me of the Daisy Dalrymple books by Carola Dorman and coincidentally both authors were born in England but now live in Oregon. I enjoyed it enough to try another in the series and it fits well into the "Cosy Mystery" genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed 8 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I think. Kate is a very fine writer. The characters of Cecily and Baxter were loveable. Cecily reminded me of Miss Marple..Although it was a typical English story there were a few words spelt the American way. A deserved four star rating and recommend to other Kindle readers.
