LoveReading Expert Review of England Expects A Mirabelle Bevan Mystery

A classically arresting mystery, overflowing with good old fashioned pluck, courage and perseverance. The third in the Mirabelle Bevan mysteries, this can also be read as a vintage standalone novel. In a bygone era, Mirabelle and her feisty cohort Vesta often outpace their male companions and are far ahead of their time. This is such an authentic read, Brighton in the early 50’s is as much a character in the book as the investigators themselves. The author acknowledges how frustrating research and inquiries can be with the last piece of the jigsaw often remaining just out of sight.  With some formidable detective work as well as some particularly perilous moments, this is a first rate read. ~ Liz Robinson


A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

Post-WWII England was a fascinating time. Buttoned-up, seedy, glamorous, rationed ... Sara Sheridan nails the era, and who wouldn't root for her cool and enterprising heroine, Mirabelle Bevan, and sidekick Vesta Churchill as they battle corrupt masons and solve a murder or three.'

- Alison Rae, Managing Editor, Polygon

England Expects A Mirabelle Bevan Mystery Synopsis

Set during the summer heatwave of 1953, England Expects finds Mirabelle and Vesta investigating the seemingly unrelated murders of a racing journalist and a cleaning woman. Their searches lead them through Brighton Pavilion's crumbling passageways to the quad of a Cambridge college and finally into the shady underworld of Brighton freemasonry. And, while not on the murder trail, Vesta has to make some difficult decisions about her personal life.
