James, and Colin Dexter's Morse. Recently, I also like Sheila Connolly's series titles. These books are a very enjoyable read and are highly recommended.

Have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series and am sorry it ended. Epsom Downs gives you an excellent plot plus a very interesting look at horse racing in the early 1900s and the influence of horse doping (introduced from America). You also meet the famous Lillie Langtry, who is the "real person" in this book. I also enjoy the factual information given by the authors, after the mystery is concluded. Part of the charm of the Paige series.

I have enjoyed reading books written by Robin Paige for many years, I used to borrow them from my public library but now I get them on my tablet. This tale was suspenseful and at times light hearted. I have always enjoyed a murder mystery which is not gory or gross.This author writes stories which are placed in the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentyth century. Robin Paige seems to get it right in describing the local color and the customs of the times. I find it very enjoyable to read cozy mysteries which take place in London, England and transports me to a different world than I live in. I am looking forward to my next "trip" with Robin. Great read. Mary-Ellen Batcho

The melding of real life characters based on the "known facts" surrounding them, great continuing characgters and well thought out plots with twists and turns the keep you interested in each book makes this an outstanding series.

This is the 7th book in the Victorian/Edwardian mystery series and involves horse racing. The historical elements include the introduction of photography for the "photo finish" pioneered by Muybridge, the start of doping in horse racing, and Lillie Langtry, the actress and racing fan/gambler known as "Mr Jersey". Charles and Kate are at Epsom Downs so that Charles can photograph the finish of the races. When a race goes horribly wrong, Charles is asked to investigate possible doping. Amelia, Kate's maid, takes a turn at sleuthing when Kate is invited to Lily's home to discuss turning one of her books into a play. The plot thickens when a well known bookie turns up dead. This was a decent mystery, and the historical background on racing was interesting. The main characters tended to fade into the background in this one and I missed them. Hopefull, the next in the series will be more intriguing and involving.

I admit I do enjoy this series, but it is strictly a "fun" read. I agree with the other reviewers that the author(s) really make a royal hash of the British titles, alternately referring to the same character as Lord "surname" and then as Lord "first name" - yet the same person would NEVER go by both of those. Charles, as a peer, would never EVER be referred to a Lord Charles, and it would be terribly gauche to do so. A prince is never Your Majesty.
These are pretty simple things that even an American like me can figure out and understand, yet the author(s) screw this up every time in book after book.
However if I just grit my teeth and bear it the rest of the book is funny and informative, a "light" read, so I guess I cannot expect too much accuracy. But fun. Brain candy.

The latest of the Kate and Charles Sheridan series lives up to the previous mysteries. All of my favorite characters are there, and the setting of the racecourse at Newmarket is different than most of the Victorian and Edwardian mysteries. The description of Lillie Langtry and her life seems pretty accurate from all that I have read, and so does the decription of the racing world at the time. I really enjoyed the mystery, although I was a bit disappointed if not surprised by the resolution. I enjoyed it very much on the whole. The authors have a knack for bringing historical figures to life and writing a good mystery along with it.

This is the latest in a wonderful series, a series featuring two fine leading fictional characters (now married) and some very interesting non-fictional characters. In this one The Jersey Lily herself is joined by figures of the late nineteenth century British and American horseracing world, including an appearance (as in other books) of her paramour, the Prince of Wales. The problems are serious; murder is involved, yet a deft, light touch and very appealing characters make this book, and others of the series, terrific reading.
Simon Brett's writing ranges from excellent to medium. His plots are always good, but sometimes his dialog is boring and unrealistic, especially in the earlier books in this series. I didn't notice that with DEATH ON THE DOWNS, though; I liked it.
