Ask Me No Questions: A Lady Dunbridge Mystery
by Shelley Noble
This was a lovely book to read and I have certainly gathered Lady Dunbridge into a favorite sleuth category. I really loved the historical setting and moments in this book.
The author gives us so much detail throughout the whole story that every place came alive in my mind, The same with the people. Her words generated some wonderful imagery.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
I view the delightfully independent and free-thinking Lady Dunbridge as the Edwardian English version of Victoria Woodhull, the 19th century American who advocated free love, founded a newspaper, and campaigned for the U.S. Presidency in 1872. Both were “quite the woman,” and both captured a certain spirit which now seems almost blasé, but for their times were truly “off the beaten path . . .
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
I enjoyed the characters and I took a special liking to the sweet maid Lily.
~My Reading Journeys
Ask Me No Questions is a fascinating mystery of the highest quality, atmospheric and witty, and it was like I was in another world as I poured through its pages.
~The Power of Words
ASK ME NO QUESTIONS combines British aristocracy, New York High Society, and modern sensibilities in a fun, saucy mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Set in New York’s Gilded Age and brimming with delicious society scandals, illicit affairs, losses of fortune, corruption, and falls from grace, Ask Me No Questions introduces readers to a lively cast of upstairs and downstairs characters revolving around a clever amateur sleuth.
~Book Club Librarian
The strength of this book is the plot and the story. It’s filled with twists that left me unsure of who the killer was until the end.
~Mysteries With Character
Escape Rating A-: Phil reminds me a great deal of Phryne Fisher, and for this reader, that’s an excellent thing. Although the Lady Dunbridge series is set in Gilded Age New York, as is Joanna Shupe’s marvelous Four Hundred series, it’s Phil’s likeness to Phryne that sticks in my mind.
I like that the author made sure the story was historically accurate as well as she put in many twists and turns to keep me guessing.
