Why murder a dying man?
Olivia Denis is hesitant to help an old family friend get ready for her wedding outside London. The so-called friend is a master at using people. As a young widow trying to find her way through a new romantic relationship, Olivia would rather avoid the large party.
She definitely didn’t plan to find the bride’s grandfather stabbed to death. The cruel, enormously rich aristocrat had changed his will only the day before, angering all his children.
As Olivia is forced to investigate the murder, she’s called away by her employer, the owner of an influential London daily newspaper. She must carry out another secret assignment, one that will take her to Vienna, now part of Nazi Germany.
With war on the horizon and attacks on the old man’s family increasing, can Olivia find a way to save lives in two countries?

Kate Parker


Kate Parker has wanted to travel to 1930s England since she read her mother’s Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers mysteries when she was a schoolgirl. After many years of studying science, she decided a time travel machine was out of the question so she found herself limited to reading about the period and visiting historic sites. Her love of this fascinating and challenging period led her to the research from which the Deadly series grew. Eventually, she found it necessary to spend several days in the British Library reading old newspapers, which meant another trip to England. Near Christmas. A sacrifice she’d gladly make every year.
The first story in the series is Deadly Scandal, released January 14, 2016.

My Review:
Oliva Denis has decided against her own feelings that she must help her friend with her wedding that is going to take place in London. Oliva is a widow herself and really isn't looking forward to this event. It is just her luck to find the bride's grandfather who has just been murdered. Someone has stabbed him. He has left a lot of money but, because he just changed his will there are many mad at him. It is now up to Oliva to figure out who did this. Oliva's boss has decided that he needs her to do some work for him. She has to leave and go to Vienna. She is being pulled in two directions and it is not going to be easy. How can she possibly do anything while in another place in the world? This is  a great historical mystery. I love the characters and their actions. I give this book a 4/5. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.
