Murder at the Mansion
by Janet Finsilver
All of the characters, whether minor or major, were real, interesting, and believably quirky. They’re all memorable, and make the story; characterization is Finsilver’s strength.
~Bea’s Book Nook
First-person narrative, gorgeous description, and endearing characters, both adults and children, plus canines, combine in a warm-hearted, comfortably delightful, cozy mystery.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
What a great read for a new author to us.
This is the second series I’ve been reading that has a group of seniors taking part in the amateur investigations and I am LOVING it!
The author paints a picture so well done you get pulled in from the first page.

~Melina’s Book Blog
It was such a pleasure to read …
This was a fun cozy with enough deeper elements for any genre mystery buff to appreciate.
Murder at the Mansion was a cute cozy mystery novel. I definitely enjoyed the ending.
~The Mysterious Ink Spot
With plenty of misdirection to keep me guessing, I found this to be an entertaining read.
~The Book’s the Thing
I loved the mystery. I found myself wondering whodunit right up until the end.
An easy, clear and smooth writing, detailed and well-made descriptions, great dialogues make it a really compelling story.

It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B&B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!
