Product Description

Product Description

The fourth 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.


May Day heralds the opening of the summer season at the Pennyfoot, and the downstairs staff is busy getting the hotel ready for their aristocratic guests. Festivities to celebrate are in full swing, when one of the guests is found hanging from the Maypole with a ribbon around her neck. Cecily puts herself in danger as she hunts for the mysterious killer.

The final Pennyfoot Mystery, also a Christmas edition, Mulled Murder, was published in November 2013 by Berkley Books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Light Mystery Reading 13 Mar 2013

Kindle needs to add all of the Pennyfoot Mysteries to their library. They have the first six of the series which are all fun reads. We have the first ones and the last couple in print but we are missing the middle!

5.0 out of 5 stars May be my favorite of the series so far 7 April 2013
By Holly - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
To give you a bit of background, these books are set in southeastern England in 1906, Cecily Sinclair is the owner of a seaside hotel called the Pennyfoot Hotel. She is the sole owner of the hotel after becoming a widow about a year ago. She has a manager, Baxter, who promised her late husband to watch over both the hotel and her. He plays a heavy role in running the hotel but his idea of what a proper lady should do is different from Cecily's. She is very progressive in her ideas about women's equality and that doesn't necessarily set well with the more conservative manager's ideas. There is a fair about of interaction between these two characters which causes me to laugh a bit and is humorous.

This time out, the social Season is just about to begin and a prominent London family is returning to the hotel to rest prior to the whirlwind to come. When one of the wives turns up dead, wrapped in the May Pole, everyone assumes the gypsies of the area are at fault and the culprit will be apprehended quickly. A few of the pieces of the puzzle don't quite fit together in Cecily's mind and she isn't content with the speed of the investigation so she starts asking some questions of her own. There are also two subplots in the book, one involving a guest at the hotel and another involving one of the staff. The sprinkling in of these two smaller mysteries adds a lot to the novel and was a nice touch by the author.

A charming cast of characters (the staff is full of amusing folks), a quaint sea-side setting, and bit of a mystery add up to quite an enjoyable read. Definitely for those who enjoy a meander through a slower-paced, more gentle story versus fast-paced and intense - this is a true "cozy

Bottom line: Better than the last book which I gave 4 stars to. This one rates a full 5 stars and I would highly recommend this series to fans of the genre.

Fun way to spend a quiet afternoon or night. Character's are believable and varied, each with a charm all their own. A nice escape from the serious cares of modern day life.

5.0 out of 5 stars it like I was there 10 Mar 2013
By Professor Jan - Published on

The time period is long before I came along, but I feel I could have been there, the descriptions are that well written. The characters are real, have real flaws. I am reading these out of sequence, which I did not think I wanted to do, but as they become available on Kindle, I will get them and read them, even if they are out of order.
