Book Review: Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer

Why Shoot a Butler?Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read on Kindle.

This was a Kindle deal last week, and I like Heyer and have only previously read and enjoyed one of her mysteries (Envious Casca), so I thought I'd give it a try.  I'm glad I did.

A fun traipse through the British countryside (despite the murders) with twists and turns that the explanation make plausible.  Mr. Amberley is a wonderful main character detective (if abrasive at times) ... rich, knowing, and piecing together scraps of information to a logical deduction.  It was a gripping read from the beginning - stumbling upon a murder; referencing a past involvement of Amberley with the police.  I'd like to find out more about that ... and whether there are others with Amberley as a character. 

If you like mysteries, I'd recommend this one as delightful, light reading.

I posted a quote yesterday for Wordy Wednesday.
