Hollywood starlets are supposed to be happily on set in sunny California, and not trapped in drafty manor houses during ferocious snowstorms.
But after Cora Clarke's best friend and fellow actress elopes with an English earl, Cora visits England to help her friend brave the aristocratic disapproval of her new husband's family.
Unfortunately, the holiday turns nightmarish when a chandelier crashes down and kills somebody. When suspicion falls on her friend, Cora vows to figure out the identity of the murderer. After all, blizzards have a habit of preventing the police from arriving, and body counts have a dreadful habit of growing.
NB: This book was previously titled Murder at the Manor House under the name Bianca Blythe.
About the author
Born in Texas, Wellesley graduate Camilla Blythe spent four years in England. She worked in a fifteenth-century castle, though sadly that didn't actually involve spotting dukes and earls strutting about in Hessians.
Camilla has adored golden-age mysteries ever since her mother handed Camilla her first Agatha Christie mystery when she was eight. She now lives in California with her husband.
