A Star Is Threatened

Adriana Ford, a famous stage actress, has retired to the country with her family in tow. Her family is a dangerous mix. Her nephew who cheats on his wife. Her nephews' wife who is silently resentful of his phillandering but blames the women who "throw themselves" at him. There is an adopted child whose origins are unknown but who tries desperately and unsuccessfully to be Adriana. There is Star who is acting on stage and her daughter Stella who screams when she is thwarted. Adriana's maid who hates the country and wants to go to London. Adriana begins to think someone wants to kill her and consults Miss Silver. When a fellow actress is killed because she is wearing Adriana's coat, Miss Silver comes to the country and solves the mystery. I find that I like the Wentworth books if I like the characters in the book. The only problem I had with this one was Adriana was not a very sympathetic character and most of the others weren't much better. But the mystery is top notch and it's definitely worth owning.

Miss Silver investigates

A retired famous film star has a house full of deceitful relatives eager to sponge off her. When she suspects that someone is trying to poison her, she goes to the famed governess turned private detective Miss Silver for advice. But she ignores Miss Silver's warning to be careful and instead plans a party at her lovely estate. Then disaster strikes.The book is not only a good mystery full of suspense, but also has a sweet romantic storyline to it. I recommend it highly, it's very entertaining. This is in a similar genre/style to Agatha Christie, another great mystery writer.

Fatal Mistaken Identify

A retired famous film star has a house full of deceitful relatives eager to sponge off her and would be very happy if she die so they could have her fortune with no strings attached. When she suspects that someone is trying to poison her, she goes to the author's famed governess turned private detective Miss Silver for advice. But in the beginning, she ignores Miss Silver's warning to be careful and instead plans for merriment by hosting a party at her lovely estate. Things take a bad turn when one of the guests turns up dead, her head smashed in, her lifeless body floating in the pool...As Miss Silver uses her ingenious investigative skills to find out who's the murderer among the many house occupants and guests, she suspects that perhaps it was a case of deadly mistaken identity, with the film star the real targeted victim...intensified suspense occurs with Miss Silver trying to find the murderer while avoiding any more murders from happening again. The book has a great combination of mystery and romance, that makes it both exciting yet sweet. I recommend it highly, it's very entertaining. This is in a similar genre/style to Agatha Christie, also another of my favorite authors.
