Although Perry, the earl of the house, and his sister, Poppy, are surprisingly accommodating to their jetlagged guests, Lucy feels uneasy after a fallen portrait sparks talk of a deadly family omen. The bad vibes come in quickly: snobby Aunt Millicent and her handmaiden Harrison unexpectedly drop by for the exhibition, and meals with the family are consistently tense. But real trouble begins when a body, bludgeoned by the chapel's gold-plated reliquary, is found in a hidden, sealed off room. Stranger still, the corpse is identified as Harrison's son, Cyril.

Pathetic, predictable, poorly written and researched murder mystery filled with cliches, British stereotypes, archaic British slang, American political issues, and characters (including the main protagonist) who are completely unlikeable.

Nice little cozy about a vacation at an English Manor House. But would not really call it a mystery, instead just a nice little fiction. I kept waiting for it to pick up speed, but it never did.

Lucy Stone is down in the dumps since her grandson left with his parents. When friend Sue suggests a trip to England, Lucy needs only a little persuasion. Off they go to a hat show at a swanky country manor. But things aren't always what they seem. Another lovely Leslie Meier read.
