The Mystery of the Sorrowful Maiden (A Laetitia Rodd Mystery)

We rated this book:


Mrs. Rodd has been called in to solve another case; this time round it’s The Mystery of the Sorrowful Maiden. The case begins with a friend asking her to help a woman receive a fair settlement from her husband, who is trying to leave her and marry a younger woman. All the players involved are stage actors and so Mrs. Rodd reluctantly has to enter the world of the stage, where she discovers many of her biases are not far off. The details of the case become more sordid by the minute, and it isn’t long before the bodies begin to pile up. When everyone has a motive for murder, how do you discover the real culprit? Mrs. Rodd will have to use all her expertise to discover the villain.

This is a perfect addition to the Laetitia Rodd series. I really enjoy the added commentary, which gives the feel of Mrs. Rodd looking back and reminiscing about her old cases. I highly recommend this book, and if you have not read any of this series before, now is a great time to start. These mysteries are perfect for reading while sitting by the fire with a cup of tea.
