Read full description of the books Murder At Madingley Grange:2.5 stars
It was one of those days, where surrounded by books, I had 'nothing to read'. Having read a chapter here, a chapter there, I realised that light entertainment was what I was after, and light entertainment is what I had. This novel is your typical cosy, chock full of cliches exactly as it should be (and which might excuse my own). A light, fizzy sorbet to clear jaded palates.
Oh dear, oh dear... young Simon and his sister, Laurie, are meant to be looking after the grange for their aunt, but he persuades her that they ought to make some money and have a bit of fun. The ads are placed and responded to, the money banked, the 1930's costumes unpacked, rooms are aired, the food prepared and, oh my, the aunt's cellar of expensive vintage wines is raided to complement the delicious meals. A butler and a maid are hired for the occasion (no reference checks!), but who are they really? Complete with house guests, a "butler as drunk as a newt and a maid as blind as a bat", weapons, ghosts, secret passages and a hideous face peering in at windows, all the elements are there for a marvellously murderous romp in the English countryside. And so we find the pretentious and the downright plebeian cheek to jowl at a murder weekend from hell. With a houseful of strangers what can go wrong? What! Is that a real corpse???...
