I picked this up at random in a charity shop and really enjoyed it. Crime fiction set in the 1920s.

Picked up at Old Gang Meetup - whilst a modern novel, it looks to be a period inspired, Agatha Christie-esque read which will suit me down to the ground. Thank you

Death Wears a Mask by Ashley Weaver - Good

Another outing for Amory Ames, her playboy husband Milo and Inspector Jones. This time a society hostess has been noticing her jewels disappearing following her dinner parties and invites Amory to one to see if she can spot who the culprit is. Nothing seems out of the ordinary, so they devise a trap at a masked ball. Of course, someone ends up murdered and Amory is in the thick of it.

More cosy, vintage style murder. Pleasant nonsense to while away my flight home from holiday.

Thanks Cassandra2020 for bringing this to our MeetUp on Sun 17 Dec 2017 and apologies for this delayed journal entry.

‘WEAVER IS CLEARLY A GIFTED WRITER. I AM SURELY NOT ALONE IN LOOKING FORWARD TO HER NEXT OFFERING.’ Daily Mail

The unexpected reconciliation between Amory Ames and her reformed playboy husband Milo is still on a fragile footing when Amory is drawn into an investigation into the disappearance of valuable jewellery. Unable to say no to an old family friend, she agrees to help lay a trap to catch the culprit at a lavish masked ball. But when a guest is murdered, Amory is pulled even further into the enquiry. Working through a suspect list while fending off the advances of a persistent viscount and struggling with rumours about Milo and a French film star.

Dry tone pleasing as the briskness with which Weaver sets out the history of this dashing couple, immediately inviting interest and enquiry. It is easy to recommend this series to others.

I have read and snapped up more of the series, still more to find. Read this in March 2018 [SUN 04-MON 05] then read a library copy of the first in series MURDER AT THE BRIGHTWELL. Subsequentially read this again March 2021 [TUE 16-FRI 19] refreshing my memory and setting this into its chronological arch. Good gracious, seems I fixed an arrangement for its next reader ages ago so it's high time this travelled!

and again. Another book which I doubt will last long on tbr and yet again, looking forward to reading this soon. Much appreciated.

Journal Entry 12 by wingFlutterbies9wing at Meare, Somerset United Kingdom on Friday, November 4, 2022
Well, this has again been read at long last, so off tbr.

I have also read the first in this series (though a while ago) and was pleased to make acquaintance with Amory and Milo again. This is a very light hearted romp with a very wilful, risk-taking (sometimes foolhardy) 'heroine'. Some red herrings and nothing gory or really upsetting, however a pleasant and easily read diversion and a gentle move around the social graces of the time.

I would like to read more in this series if they come my way.

As yet, I have no plans for this book but it may well find its way into another bookbox yet. Meanwhile set to available.
