I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Fatal Masquerade! 16th Holly’s Reading @DressedToRead.com
Lady Alkmene and Jake Dubois are back in a gripping new adventure facing dangerous opponents at a masked ball in the countryside.
Lady Alkmene Callender has always loved grand parties, but when she receives an invitation to a masked ball thrown by Franklin Hargrove – oil magnate, aviation enthusiast and father of her best friend, Denise – she’s never seen such luxury. The estate is lit up with Chinese lanterns in the gardens, boats operated by footmen float across the pond and the guest list features the distinguished, rich and powerful!
But below the glamour, evil is lurking. When a dead body is discovered, it forces Lady Alkmene to throw off her mask and attempt to find the true killer before Denise’s family are accused. If only her partner, Jake Dubois, weren’t hiding something from her…
This case might just be more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.
Lady Alkmene has been invited to party with the rich and famous at the beautiful estate of her best friend Denise’s father. It is a masked ball and everyone arrives in costume to have a good time, but one masked guest is up to no good. A dead body has been found in the boathouse and Lady Alkmene will not stand for an innocent maid to take the blame and she will need her partner Jake to help her comb through all the clues.
Like the game of clue, many rooms and many clues will need to be investigated and suspects will need to be questioned. Why was a murder committed? Who had a motive?
Enjoyable light mystery with a spectacular setting and a fabulous cast of characters! If you are a fan of cozy mysteries, you will surely be a fan of this enjoyable read!

Great review, Holly! I was thinking the same thing when I read this that it reminded me of the game of Clue. 🙂
