In post–World War I England, Lady Phoebe Renshaw and her
lady’s maid, Eva Huntford, encounter an uncharitable killer
at a charity luncheon sponsored by a posh school for girls .
Good deeds build good character, and good character is what
the Haverleigh School for Young Ladies is all about. Lady
Phoebe—with the tireless assistance of Eva—has organized a
luncheon at the school to benefit wounded veterans of the
Great War, encouraging the students to participate in the
cooking and the baking. But too many cooks do more than
spoil the broth—they add up to a recipe for disaster when
the school’s headmistress, Miss Finch, is poisoned.
The girls at Haverleigh all come from highly respected
families, none of whom will countenance their darling
daughters being harassed like common criminals by the local
police. So Lady Phoebe steps in to handle the wealthy young
debutantes with tact and discretion, while Eva cozies up to
the staff. Did one of the girls resent the headmistress
enough to do her in? Did a teacher bear a grudge? What about
the school nurse, clearly shell shocked from her service in
the war? No one is above suspicion, not even members of the
school’s governing body, some of whom objected to Miss
Finch’s “modern” methods.
But Lady Phoebe and Eva will have to sleuth with great
stealth—or the cornered killer may try to teach someone else
a lethal lesson.
