Everyone wants a piece of millionaire Bennett Marshfield, owner of Marshfield Manor, and letters are coming in daily from those claiming to be poor relations. The elderly reclusive heir to the manor trusts no one but his aged curator, Abe. But when Abe is killed in a case of mistaken identity, things change dramatically.

Shaken by the murder, Grace Wheaton, lover of history and mystery, steps up to the challenge of assuming Abe's responsibilities. But now some of the letters arriving for Bennett have taken a nasty turn, demanding millions - or else.

When an uninvited stalker shows up at the manor and then at Grace's home, she and the groundskeeper, Jack Embers, join together to protect Bennett and Marshfield Manor - and get to the bottom of the strange events surrounding them. The pair must unravel a botched Ponzi scheme, some torrid Wheaton family secrets, and sour grapes out for revenge...

I haven't read a cozy mystery this entertaining in a long time. Grace Wheaton was a wonderful protagonist. Will definitely be picking up the sequel!

Moral of the story: Watch your subordinates.

Pretty good for a first in a series. Looking forward to reading the next one Grace Interrupted.

I also like Grace Wheaton and the Manor House Mystery series better than the White House Chef series. Anyone enjoying this should also check out the Alex St. James series by the same author.

This is the first book in a new series. I like it better than the White House Chef books. Good characters and i really like that Grace does NOT have a boyfriend that is a policeman or a private detective!
