Framing the Dialogue

A Quiet Life in the Country

Lady Hardcastle and her “maid” Miss Armstrong move into what they believe to be a quiet country setting.  On one of their first walks into town they discover something that is anything but what they expected in this quaint little town.  They both dig in to solve the mystery…

“I have christened it the ‘crime board’, she said ‘Let me show you.’  She stood and collected a sheaf of papers from the sideboard before crossing to the blackboard.”

In A Quiet Life in the Country, Hardcastle and Armstrong put on their sleuthing caps to help the local police solve the mystery.  Set in England in the early 20th Century, these are strong women, one of them quite literally, in a time when women were perceived differently.  This is a charming novel and a very enjoyable book to read.  If you like good old-fashioned mystery, you’ll be sure to love this novel by author T E Kinsey
