Tomorrow, August 4th, is publication day for the newest installment of the Kat Holloway Mysteries so I wanted to spotlight Murder In The East End. I look forward to reading and reviewing in the next few weeks!
Murder In The East End by Jennifer Ashley
Expected publication date: August 4, 2020 – Berkley
The fourth Victorian murder mystery in the Kat Holloway series from the New York Times bestselling author of Death in Kew Gardens.
When young cook Kat Holloway learns that the children of London’s Foundling Hospital are mysteriously disappearing, she can’t turn a blind eye. East End parish vicar Errol Fielding has his suspicions, but the police brush him off, and Kat–and his childhood acquaintance Daniel McAdam–are his last option.
Kat and Daniel are determined to solve the mystery, and Kat engages the help of her scullery maid, Elsie, who reveals she had been a foundling. Their investigation takes them to the less hospitable areas of London, including the very streets where Kat grew up. She soon suspects the answers they seek are much closer to home than any of them realized–and may reveal far more than any of them wants.

I think you’d enjoy this series, Mystica.
I’m not too sure that all of Jennifer’s books are for me, however this ‘Below Stairs’ series sounds really good.
In your opinion, can they be read as stand alone stories, or do I need to go back and start the series from the beginning?
Thanks for sharing and I hope that you enjoy the read, in due course 🙂
Hi, Yvonne. I think this series is my only experience with the author’s books. I did a quick scan of Goodreads reviews and found a few that said you can jump in with this book. That said, you might miss context with the relationships of the main characters. I say give it a chance with this book and if you’re curious go back to book one.
I love the look and sound of this one! Thanks for sharing.
