I received these books for free on one of the book sites and may buy more.
What I didn’t like: Angela was extremely careless about sharing information with her god daughter Barbara, and even more careless about keeping tabs on Barbara’s whereabouts. Of course, Barbara nearly gets killed by the villains. I think I blame Angela even more than Barbara for B being such a willful and dangerously precocious child.
The final interaction with the renowned jewel thief was preposterous.
I did finish the book, but I put it down many times, and several times fell asleep while trying to get through it.
I do love that old England atmoshpere which is, as you ask me, the best atmosphere for having a good and decent murder. The author follows that recipe and also bring typical characters in her stories: beautiful but spoiled ladies, hairs who are step close to lose their inheritance because of their inapproipriate behavior, silent, and relieable male friends, and plenty of servants and family guests which all can fit in a role of suspects.
Definitelly worth reading.

I thought the stories improved throughout the series but like much detective fiction, some things are a bit contrived: I am sceptical that anyone could mesmerise their ex-fiancé to the point where he could kill himself; and I doubt that any 12-year-old would have been allowed to speak to adults in the 1920s the way Barbara did. Nevertheless it was interesting and imaginative and I would certainly read more.
Would recommend as "easy reading"
