“A real murder, a real family and a brand new crime fiction heroine are woven together to make a fascinating, and highly enjoyable, read. I loved it.”
―Julian Fellowes, creator and writer of Downton Abbey and Belgravia
The first in a series of thrilling Golden Age-style mysteries, set among the Mitford sisters, and based on a real unsolved murder, by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey books.
It’s 1920, and Louisa Cannon dreams of escaping her life of poverty in London.
Louisa’s salvation is a position within the Mitford household at Asthall Manor, in the Oxfordshire countryside. There she will become nursemaid, chaperone and confidante to the Mitford sisters, especially sixteen-year-old Nancy, an acerbic, bright young woman in love with stories.
But then a nurse―Florence Nightingale Shore, goddaughter of her famous namesake―is killed on a train in broad daylight, and Louisa and Nancy find themselves entangled in the crimes of a murderer who will do anything to hide their secret…
Based on an unsolved crime and written by Jessica Fellowes, author of the New York Times bestselling Downton Abbey companion books, The Mitford Murders is the perfect new obsession for fans of classic murder mysteries.
The back of the book has some good words from other authors that might spark your interest.
The dust jacket also provided a sneak peek on what the story is all about. If you’re a follower of the Mitford’s family’s stories, you will definitely find this one as enticing as well.
If you love murder mystery that is set way back in history, this book is perfect. As the main character, Louisa Cannon escapes from her life of poverty, she will then find herself, along with Nancy Mitford, entangled in a case that happened in broad daylight, the murder of Florence Nightingale Shore.
It’s a terrific and engaging mystery that you might resist putting the book down until you finish it!

It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress.
