Secrets Never Die . . .

October, 1923. Lady detective Olive Belgrave has a new case.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

The 3rd book in this series takes us to Mulvern House where Olive Belgrave meets with Lady Agnes about her uncle’s death. A death that has been ruled a suicide. Lady Agnes is sure her uncle would never take his own life. This is where I need to encase my heart in virtual steel to keep reading because as the mother of a suicide victim, families rarely think our loved ones would take their own lives. Knowing stories like this I know that Lord Mulvern death was not by his own han

This third installment had its good moments but for me did not match up to the fun I had with the previous two. It was pretty great in its own rights but with the expectations I had from it, it fell a little short but considering how it ended... I should start at the beginning, Olive is now being asked to solve mysteries thanks to the word of mouth praises that have gone around the more influential families in the country. This case is an intriguing one, it has to do with the obsession of the Br ...more

The Egyptian Antiquities Murder took me once again into a period in Britain that has always fascinated me. The period between WWI and WWII was an era of tremendous social change, not least for our High Society Lady Detective, Olive Belgrave. Olive was gently born and never expected to be left virtually penniless due to her feckless father's bad investments. Rather than retreating into the country with her father and his unwelcoming new wife, Olive is determined to make it on her own. In books 1 ...more

What a wonderful peek into the past with a unique view of how the 1920's excavations and seeking the glory of the next big find in Egypt, along with how the ancient curses could have been manipulated to ones own advantage.

Lady Agnes Mulvern has asked Lady Olivia Belgrave to look into her uncles supposed suicide as she cannot believe that he would end his own life. And the police will not look any further.

We are led through a trail of leads, in which any one of several people who were at a dinner

I received this as an ARC. As usual, I just love Sara Rosett’s books. They are detail oriented so you always feel that you are living either in the place or time period that she is depicting. This is 1920’s England where there are still stately mansions with millionaires with hobbies such as Egyptian antiquities and collecting such. In this story Olive Belgrade who needs to work for a living is hired by Lady Agnes, the niece of the antiquity collector, to determine why he died as she does not th ...more

I enjoyed the new High Society Lady Detective series by Sara Rosett. I love that Olive is a strong independent woman finding her way. I feel as though I have lived in the 1920's even if just for a moment. I enjoy learning about the happenings and the lingo of that time period in England. Sara does her research and it shows. Her attention to detail shines through in her books. I have received an advance review copy.

A perfectly charming mystery sent in the early 1920s when London was all abuzz with Egypt fever. Olive is called into help prove that Lord H's death was not caused by suicide or an ancient curse. Her sensible levelheadedness serves her well until she uncovers some family secrets that they don't wish to have aired. As always, I enjoy the subtle clues and slight misdirection that were the hallmark of the golden era of detective stories.

Another delightful mystery featuring the high society lady detective Olive Belgrave. She is asked to discover who murdered Lord Mulvern. With plenty of suspects including his nephew, Olive knows she needs to solve this delicately.

Very enjoyable

I enjoyed the new High Society mystery very much! Using the craze for Egyptology following the discovery of King Tut made for a very enjoyable mystery. Looking forward to the next one, I can't wait to see what happens between Jasper and Olive!
