And, oh boy, were they keeping a lot from each other. Their secrets come out as they grapple with solving the mystery of the murder. I was thrown for more than one loop throughout the story - the author is great at messing with your mind until she wants you to know the truth. The pacing of Coattails and Cocktails is just right. I was vested in these characters and the story every step of the way.
The atmosphere of the writing and the setting were in perfect sync - both have an elegant vibe that draws you back to an era gone by. Makes me want to dress up, put some finger waves in my hair, grab a highball, and join them at the party.
Haven’s writing style is heavily detailed but technically flawless. Shifts in perspective are easy to follow and while the story may drag, its due o style choice and not lack of writing skill. As much as Haven is writing a mystery, she always aims for the literary genre.
If you have a few hours and enjoy historical fiction, buy Coattails and Cocktails and give it a shot.
Scandal, rumor and class all play roles. Sort of the opposite of a locked door mystery, this wealthy mansion has the most modern conveniences incuding hidden passageways and trick levers. Even those who seem to have an alibi when a murder is discovered continue to have motive and opportunity.
This is a quick read but also a wonderful workout for the readers powers of observation and deduction.
I accepted this book for review.
There are a few twists, turns and the odd red herring. It takes time to get going as the murder doesn’t happen until a little way in, but then it quickly builds up speed and it held my attention right up to the end. It's a clever and intriguing plot with some interesting characters. I tend to enjoy country house mysteries!
An entertaining, glamorous and nostalgic mystery which should be read in the spirit and time it is written and represents, a time of jazz, silent movies and flappers: the ‘Golden Age’. I look forward to reading more by this author.
