    Rose does it again Another house party, another murder. Rose and Cedric had hoped for a quiet weekend at Cedric's ancestral home, building on their blossoming relationship......but his sister returns from the lengthy break on the continent and has invited some new friends to join her. I did guess one of the twists quite early on, but a well plotted and enjoyable adventure, with murder, dark deeds and complex relationships. Recommended!

    Still enjoying the series, but felt the mystery aspect of this one was a bit predictable. I had most of it figured out long before the end. The characters didn't resinate with me as much either. I prefer a little more complexity, even in a cozy mystery. (Side note, and slight spoiler alert, don't report "content error, typo" on your Kindle until the very end. Something that seems 'wrong' is correct.)

    I love this series! If you like historical mysteries, especially in British country homes, especially in the 20s and 30s, I think you'll enjoy this series as much as I do. Well written, great descriptions, characters that are well developed. Thank you Ms Addison once again for the wonderful entertainment!

    At first I was a bit disappointed with this book - it seemed a bit too similar to the first one in the series. But as the story progressed the pace quickened and the plot became more complex. Looking forward to reading the next one!

    Another fun book I am really becoming familiar with the characters in these books. I am looking forward to many more of the Rose Simpson mysteries. They are a nice break after a day at work.

    Not quite as good as the first two This series is an easy read, entertaining and lovable characters. This book kind of left me wanting more, just not as much intrigue and too simple of a plot. I enjoyed the first two books much much more.

    Chalk up another great read thanks to Margaret Addison. She has the country house murder mysteries style down pat.

    A great Golden Age of Mystery type of book. Fun and the characters match what I would think a 1920 cast would be like.

    Still enjoying it It was fun, kept me guessing, although I figured out one major plot twist early on. Still a nice book, cute, a real curl up after a long day and read book.

    Murder at Sedgwick. Rose and Cedric the saga continues. Twist and turns what looks looks down. Money can be the route to evil.

    Murder at Sedgwick Court Kept me guessing up until the end with imposters and role switching and constant theories you are surprised at the thief and murderer.

    What often happens when I read mysteries series is what happened here--I found myself getting irritated at things that didn't bother me in earlier books. So I'm taking a break and returning to another series.

    I had thought this series was only a trilogy, so was a bit disappointed with the ending at first, but now, after finding out it will continue on as hopefully a long running series, I feel better about it. I figured out the mystery in this one fairly early on, and found it a bit tedious how long it took Rose, not to mention the police, to catch up with me, but it was still an intriguing concept. I liked the characters a lot, and really missed the one character who was missing.

    Good reading I stumbled upon this author by accident and immediately read all 3 of the books in the series. The characters were well developed and the settings a pleasure to be surrounded by as I entered their world. The stories definitely are reminiscent of Agatha Christie and a pleasure to read as Rose picks up clues with which to solve the crimes. I am looking forward to the next installment and anything else that the author cares to offer.

    Another good mystery where the houses are as much part of the plot as the characters. The edges between the classes and servants and gentry are explored and highlighted. A very enjoyable series so far.

    Excellent read As per usual Addison has delivered a compelling mystery, that left me, a mystery aficionado, guessing until the very end whodunnit! If you're a fan of Agatha Christie, and manor house mysteries like the moonstone, you won't be disappointed!!!

    Murder and deceit, An English mystery, with all the trimmings. Nothing is as it seems, a nice light weight read, something good for a cold rainy night.
