Murder at the Opera House (A Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe Mystery) Kindle Edition
Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe reluctantly agrees to accompany her irritating cousin-in-law, Edna Parkinton on an organised tour, starting in Romania.Looking for rest and relaxation after their last trip ended up as a murder investigation, things don't quite go to plan. Edna is pleased when they encounter Horace Tyler from their previous holiday and Marjorie believes she has found a new friend in Frederick Mackworth.
Their peace is shattered when they meet an argumentative and annoying sextet, including a petulant diva. This is made worse when the whole party is detained in Cluj-Napoca after a body is discovered at the end of their night at the opera.
The death of one among their company raises questions about who might have wanted to kill the seemingly unpopular diva, Dolores Hagman. With a plethora of suspects, Marjorie and Edna lock horns while trying to discover who was responsible.
It appears the dead woman's friends and family are more interested on continuing with their holiday than finding a killer. With each harbouring secrets they would rather remain untold, Marjorie and her pensioner pals have their work cut out.
Can Marjorie get to the bottom of a troubling murder without killing her cousin-in-law and ending up in a Romanian jail?

Sorry if I missed the point, because I finally moved the pages forward to nearly the end. I found myself not liking the Lady and wondering why, I, if she really is the Imperial snob she appeares to be, would want to spin time with her?...and decided...I really didn't care.
liking the main protagonist Lady Snellthorpe, to be either anachronistic or just plain Snobbish. There was nothing playful such as the Three Stooges Escapades to provide the reader with the understanding that the Lady was merely setting the stage foe some Zany Antics down the road...ala, Edna!
BUT, THERE ARE SOME GOOD BASIS FOR FUTURE GOOD TIMES,

I have to say there are not many likeable characters in this story which does make it a tad onerous to read as you are just wanting to find out who dunnit, and not enjoying the people in it as you go. Also there is a lot of conversation, more so than action. You have to really focus to work out who the murderer is. An excellent read!
