Review: MURDER MOST MALICIOUS by Alyssa Maxwell
(A Lady and Lady's Maid Mystery Book 1)
MURDER MOST MALICIOUS is an enterprising historical cozy mystery, set in rural England in December 1918, the first peacetime Christmas for Western Europe since the First World War. Life at Foxwood has somewhat settled, until Christmas night, when nineteen-year-old Lady Phoebe overhears, then interrupts, a nasty and uncivil argument between her sister, Lady Julia, and the generally expected fiance to be, Lord Allerton. Next morning, Boxing Day holiday, he is nowhere to be found; until the family servants, and a few village shopkeepers, open their presents from the manor house, only to discover "gifts" they neither expected nor wished. A nefarious and clever killer is at large, and independent-thinking Lady Phoebe bends her keen intellect to discovery.
