Scandal Above StairsEalthiest families Soon antiues are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors but from the illustrious British MuseumAs the thefts increase in freuency Kat calls upon her friend Da Just as charming as its predecessor Scandal Above Stairs continues the adventures of resourceful and level headed Kat Holloway and her merry band of friends and acuaintances In this installment Kat is tasked with solving the mystery of who’s been stealing artwork and various fancies from some of Mayfair’s most well known residents Still working as a cook in the Rankin kitchen circumstances have changed since Mrs Rankin passed away Mr Rankin has left in order to process his wife’s death leaving Lady Cynthia mostly alone in the mansion which certainly works in Kat’s favor Lady Cynthia is no slouch when it comes to sneaking about and she makes a delightful partner for investigations She’s got the name and status to get both herself and Kat in the door Kat has the name and status to get the help to talk Together they make a formidable pair and the investigation is even better once the elusive Daniel and his son make an appearance This series is uickly growing to become one of my favorite historical mystery series Eual parts witty and charming but there’s also a fair bit of danger and mayhem to be found and it’s certainly a nice balance My favorite aspect though is definitely the characters specifically Kat and Daniel Kat is such a strong character resourceful level headed tough as nails and so incredibly smart Smart enough to not get tangled up so uickly with a man like Daniel although I wish she would The romance in this one is the slowest of all slow burns but I strongly suspect the wait will most certainly be worth it There is another romance that seems to be blossoming between one Lady Cynthia and someone familiar and I’m rooting just as hard for them as I am for Kat and Daniel Bottom line Scandal Above Stairs was a fantastic second installment in the Kat Holloway series and I definitely can’t wait to see what Ashley brings for the third installment I’m uite certain there will be danger and shenanigans and plenty of stick in the mud Mr Davis who I also adore and hopefully Daniel and James Together with Lady Cynthia they make a fantastic foursome that I can’t get enough of Highly recommended for lovers of mysteries who like a little humor excellent characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing ARC received courtesy of the publisher
