A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT a cozy murder mystery full of twists (Dorothy Martin Mystery Book 10) Kindle Edition
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A valentine to Golden Age house mysteries . . . Readers will find it irresistible!” Yvonne
Dorothy and her husband are invited by friends to Branston Abbey for a country house weekend.
Thirteen other guests she hardly knows.
A rambling Tudor mansion, full of secrets.
What could possibly go wrong?
A lovely dinner is just getting into its stride when a huge storm rolls in.
The lights go out. And with no electricity or phone service, and cut off by flood waters, Dorothy feels like she’s stuck in an Agatha Christie mystery.
A guest is found unconscious, another disappears, and there’s a horrifying discovery in one of the bedrooms.
They are being picked off one by one. Can amateur sleuth Dorothy discover the culprit before anyone else dies?
Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.

“A cozy as comforting as a hot cup of tea and as deliciously spicy as one of Dorothy's mince pies.” Publishers Weekly
Dorothy Martin, sixtyish widow from Indiana and retired schoolteacher, moves to England shortly after her husband dies. A move they had planned to make together. Like the author, she has a taste for fabulous hats.
The fictitious cathedral city of Sherebury, located somewhere in the southeast of England. A small and beautiful town, it is a mix of many real cities and towns in the England so loved by the author. She guarantees that no American fast-food chains will ever crop up on the High Street of Sherebury, where pubs, tea shops, and Indian restaurants thrive.

Lots of mystery and humour . On to another book by this author I really enjoyed the style of writing.

This is quite a dark cosy mystery with danger threatening from all sides and further murders and accidents reducing the suspects. I failed completely to work out who was responsible though the clues were there. I thought the plot was very well done and the claustrophobic atmosphere was well created. The author really did convey how much we rely on modern conveniences such as electricity, phones and the internet.
My only complaint about the book was something which many American authors get wrong with crime novels set in the UK Barristers are not solicitors and a barrister would not carry out property conveyancing work. That said, the confusion was a minor part of the book and it didn't spoil m enjoyment of the story. This book is number ten in the Dorothy Martin series though the books can be read in any order.
