Series: An Abbot Agency Mystery (Book 7). Hardcover: 224 pages. The Abbot Agency series just gets better and better. I enjoyed this book enormously, the main characters get more rounded out and the who-done-it in this mystery was really a surprise.

Series: An Abbot Agency Mystery (Book 7). Sir Lucas was most believable, I loved te fact that he could be absolutely wrong! I love Bea, she is a little younger than I am and certainly wealthier but she still is a down home woman with a strong sense of turning lost sheep into family members.

Veronica is the creator of the ever-popular Ellie Quicke mysteries, as well as the Abbot Agency series. While Bea Abbot worries that she's lost control of her domestic agency, she's asked to find some domestic help for an eccentric little musician falsely accused of murder. She doesn';t realize how dangerous this might be until Jeremy, fleeing from attempts on his life, lands up on her doorstep.

Bea Abbot is asked to find the man or woman who laid a booby trap for Sir Lucas Ossett, the powerful head of an international company, in his own block of flats. She finds Sir Lucas’s wife in a state of fear, while gossiping elderly ladies cast doubt on the probity of their eclectic neighbours. Soon it’s clear that Sir Lucas’s influence reaches out to touch and perhaps corrupt even those nearest to Bea, while trivial incidents escalate into violence – and death.

The series takes a slightly different direction dropping the actions of the villain and focusing on a single problem. It is set in London featuring the upper middle class and their difficulties. The characters are all well developed and have become my friends. The MC, Bea Abbott has many good qualities, her belief in God is one of her strength. Another is her ability to understand and help her son and friends through their trials.
This book deals with the age old question about how much does a child owes their parents. Lady Ossett, Maggie's Mother demands she that she return and become her companion. Bea feels that Maggie will lose all she has gained if she does. Bea becomes involved in the affairs of Lord Ossett. Strange occurrences have been napping I the building. Lord Lucas Ossett feels that someone in the building is trying to kill him. The ending will surprise. I highly recommend this book.

The Abbot Agency series just gets better and better. I enjoyed this book enormously, the main characters get more rounded out and the who-done-it in this mystery was really a surprise. Sir Lucas was most believable, I loved te fact that he could be absolutely wrong! I love Bea, she is a little younger than I am and certainly wealthier but she still is a down home woman with a strong sense of turning lost sheep into family members. She has a marvelously interesting ex-husband but has no illusions about his strengths and weakesses. I missed reading more of him in this book. I truly wish she could give her son some backbone and a stronger sense of morality ... or is it less selfishness that he needs? I don't find him charming just surly or is his mum just blind to his faults? It seems so. I love the descriptions of the flats and the Abbott house because they remind me of my visits of England. My only regret is that I anxiously await the next book, I read it, but then it's over all too soon. I truly wish I could stretch each book out a little longer because I love the suspense and the characters. I sure hope there is an Ellie Quicke on the front burner so I can continue to have another "Veronica Heley" to read very soon. By the way, what happened to real quotation marks, have they become passe?

Love the Abbott Agency series by Heley! This is a great additon letting us in on more of our favorite characters lives. Bea's insights of everyones actions is always on the money,and sticking to her moral compass when others fail is refreshing. Love Heley's plots and characters!

Bea Abbot is worried about Maggie who lives with her and runs her own property development business. Maggie has been summoned by her mother, Lady Ossett, because her husband, Sir Lucas, has moved out. Bea doesn't think it would be good for Maggie to give up her job - especially as she doesn't get on well with her mother. When Sir Lucas asks Bea to find out what is going on in the block of flats where Lady O lives Bea finds herself more involved than she really cares to be.

This is a well written `cosy' mystery with that little something extra. The characters are well drawn and they develop throughout the series. There is Bea herself, running a successful domestic agency, Maggie - who lives in the same house, Oliver who is away at university but who features in this story as he is home for the Christmas holiday. There is Winston, the cat with attitude and Bea's ex-husband, portrait painter Piers.

I enjoy this series because it is firmly founded in the everyday problems of feeding a family, shopping and making sure a business runs smoothly while trying to solve a mystery and be all things to everyone. Bea is far from being a perfect person and she speaks her mind when necessary as well as putting the phone down on people when they annoy her.
