"Good heavens!" said Lady Hardcastle as we stepped down from the dog cart. "This is rather larger than I had expected."
Friday 56:
I was about to try to press him for more details when the bell rang from the dining room again.

"I expect that'll be for me," he said, getting up. "Please leave me a piece of trifle if you can spare it. I"m rather partial to trifle."
This week I am spotlighting A Quiet Life in the Country by T. E. Kinsey. This historical mystery is a recent Kindle Daily Deal purchase. Here is the description from Amazon:
Lady Emily Hardcastle is an eccentric widow with a secret past. Florence Armstrong, her maid and confidante, is an expert in martial arts. The year is 1908 and they’ve just moved from London to the country, hoping for a quiet life.

But it is not long before Lady Hardcastle is forced out of her self-imposed retirement. There’s a dead body in the woods, and the police are on the wrong scent. Lady Hardcastle makes some enquiries of her own, and it seems she knows a surprising amount about crime investigation…

As Lady Hardcastle and Flo delve deeper into rural rivalries and resentment, they uncover a web of intrigue that extends far beyond the village. With almost no one free from suspicion, they can be certain of only one fact: there is no such thing as a quiet life in the country.
