MISS ANNA DEAN    Book Number: 87149    Product format: Hardback

Author Louise Penny said of this "Bliss. Like being wrapped in a comforter and transported to 1805... Rich in suspense, period detail, humour and most of all characters. They come alive, and none more than Miss Dido Kent." Dido Kent's sister-in-law Margaret is attempting to marry her off to the ghastly clergyman Dr Prowdlee, with his abominable side-whiskers. Dido however is determined to refuse him. As punishment she is sent on a journey as companion to her rich, hypochondriac Aunt Manners, whom the family want to keep on the right side of. When they arrive at Charcombe Manor, Aunt Manners' childhood home, they find a mystery lying in wait for them. The rich heiress Letitia Verney has disappeared while visiting the house, and Mr Tom Lomax is suspected of abducting her. Dido is inclined to believe in his innocence, but how is she to explain the impossibility of Miss Verney vanishing into thin air? There is also the abandoned wing of Charcombe Manor to consider. Why do lights appear there at night? The house is full of enigmas, with its memories of old family quarrels and its crying ghost that keeps visitors awake. A delicious mixture of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer in quality historical crime fiction. 414pp with fairly large print. 2012 first edition.
