You can hunt. But do you really want to find?
Bonfire Night, November 1924
Posie Parker once failed a client. And now that client is dead.
Elsie Moncreiff, a Housekeeper, has fallen from the White Cliffs of England in a howling storm. But the question is, was it bad luck, or was it murder?
Armed with just her guilty conscience and a less-than-helpful Sergeant Rainbird for company, Posie vows to get to the bottom of things. But what she finds is not at all what she was expecting.
Elsie’s place of work was the glamorous White Shaw on the English Riviera. Her employers were England’s best fashion designers, whose weekly parties are almost as famous as their clothes.
Against the backdrop of Bonfire Night, Posie must piece together what was happening down here. It seems that Elsie was not a normal Housekeeper. She was up to something odd. But what?
As intruders appear, and the body count climbs, Posie realises there’s only one man she can rely on: her fiancé, Chief Commissioner Richard Lovelace of Scotland Yard. Together, can they catch the killer before they strike again?
Murder on the White Cliffs is full of intrigue and red herrings. This is a classic murder mystery which will appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and Downton Abbey. The Posie Parker Mysteries are clean reads, with no swearing or sex, and no graphic on-stage violence.
This is NOT the end... Posie Parker returns for her next adventure, "Marriage is Murder (Book #9)" later this summer.

Extra surprising ending Very well developed series going forward should be great and exciting
If you remember Max from two other novels, you will be intrigued about him all through the novel.
This is the eighth book in the series, and I eagerly awaited its arrival.
I had thought that “ The Saltwater Murders” was excellent, with its intricate plot, and harrowing twists, and turns, but this book segues very nicely, continuing, in Hitchcockian fashion, the cloak and dagger mishaps, and adventures of its super smart sleuth, Posie Parker.
I was a devotee of Nancy Drew mysteries, as a youngster, and then an ardent Agatha Christie fan, later on, and I conclude that the Posie Parker series is their natural successor.
The story engaged, and captivated me, and indicated that the author had researched, in depth, the time in England, after the Great War.
She has a respect for the era, and her character and plot development manifest a love of the classic English mystery genre.
I cannot wait to read “ Marriage is Murder?”, next in the series.
Appreciation of the author’s writing style, with all the devices to “ hook” me in, and a passion for reading historical mysteries, have made me a loyal reader of these novels.
This book, was a page- turner, the resolution of the murders, and crimes, unraveled in typical, buy entertaining “ Nick Charles” fashion.
I have enjoyed all the books in the series, and hope that LB Hathaway continues to write cases for her spunky, independent- thinker, super- smart, and helplessly romantic heroine.
Top reviews from other countries
Thankfully as Posie has now become engaged to Lovelace, she has ceased to call him 'sir' and I have no idea why she was doing that in past books. Now, however, she has started to call Sergeant Rainbird by his last name, a thing a woman of the time and of Posie's class would never have done. She would just have called him Sergeant. I find the lack of good editing and therefore frequent instances of bad grammar and odd use of English, irritating and this detracts so much from the story, that I have decided not to read any more of the series. Also, I think if I hear "sure as bread is bread" once more, I will scream!
I so enjoyed this latest book in the Posie Parker series. Set once more in St Margaret's Bay a place I know well having lived in St Margaret's at Cliffe for 15 years, the story is fast paced and full of twists, turns and red herrings.
Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.
