1920's, Cozy crime, Traditional Detectives, Downton Abbey - I love them!
Along with my family, my dog and my cat.
At 60 I decided to write, I don't know why but suddenly the stories came pouring out, along with the characters. Eccentric Uncles, stalwart butlers, idiosyncratic servants, machinating Countesses, Fogg the dog and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox.
Suddenly a whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along.

The Curse of Braeburn Castle- hopefully, ready around October 2019.
Book 3 in the Lennox series
Set on an island in a lonely loch, Braeburn Castle is accessible only by boat. The castle has been slowly mouldering into the cold waters for centuries, but someone tries to remedy the decay. And then strange events begin. A skeleton is unearthed during renovations, awakening memories of an ancient curse.
There is a golden crown upon the skull of the skeleton - is it Black Dougal and what does it mean? Then the skull and crown disappear, rousing fear and suspicion - and ghosts are heard to walk in the dark of the night.
The Braeburn's call Lennox to come and help uncover the mysteries and the murders which follow.

Hi Susan, thank you for your question!
Not sure really - is he ready for it? I think he's the sort to lose his heart at the drop of a hat then dither about because he puts ladies on pedestals and it's very difficult to really romance a goddess.
Time will tell if the right one turns up! If she does I think she'll have to be quite a feisty lady.
warm regards, Karen(less)

".

I have enjoyed all the books in this cozy between the wars series. The characters are pretty standard but quirky enough to keep your interest. I found this one to be a little disjointed but will still look forward to the next." Read more of this review »

"A Really Good Read

I am thoroughly enjoying these MM stories. I love the historical detail, and the delightfully comedic main characters. They remind of Colin Firth and High Grant. Oh yes! Please televise these stories."

“I took a sip of the brandy; it was warming in that reassuring way good brandy always is.”
Karen Baugh Menuhin, The Curse of Braeburn Castle: A Scottish Castle Murder Mystery

“keep a list of Gertrude’s ill-gotten gains. Given recent events, however, I decided my need was greater than his so I ripped off the wrapping paper, handed it to a footman who was standing around with his mouth open, and took it upstairs to my rooms to jot down some thoughts. I fell asleep with Mr Fogg lying next to me, feeling a great deal more ready to face the Old Bill in the morning. Chapter 9 I breakfasted in my rooms and then sought fresh air with Fogg. Tucking one of my Purdey shotguns under my arm and shoving a pocketful of cartridges in my jacket, we set off for a long tramp through the woods in deep snow hoping to bag a fat pheasant – well, I was hoping to; Fogg’s dislike of the dead would rather”
