A Deadly Legacy by Malia Zaidi
Publication Date: March 15, 2022 Paperback & eBook Genre: Historical Mystery Series: A Lady Evelyn Mystery, Book 6 A few months after the Carlisle Detective Agency opened its doors, Lady Evelyn and her partner, Hugh, are twiddling their thumbs. The cases are slow to trickle in, leaving the detectives feeling uninspired. So, when Evelyn’s Aunt Louise asks her to join the local chapter of the Women’s Institute, she has no excuse to decline the invitation. Yet what she expects to be a tedious gathering, turns out to be anything but. She meets former suffragettes and outspoken women, eager for change, forcing Evelyn to reexamine her own prejudices. A decidedly less welcome surprise is the body she comes across only a few days later. Evelyn need hardly be a professional detective to recognize a murder when she sees one. Amid planning her wedding and navigating family affairs, she sets out to solve the case. The investigation takes Evelyn and Hugh into the past, examining the war years, which left the present far from untarnished. Is the victim’s history connected to her death? Could her involvement in the war have given someone a motive for murder? The questions pile up, and Evelyn and Hugh must race against the clock to discover the truth, before more lives are lost, not least, their own…

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.
A Deadly Legacy by Malia Zaidi is the sixth installment in the Lady Evelyn series.
It’s been a slow start since the Carlisle Detective Agency doors have opened. So when Evelyn aunt goes out of her way to invite to a local woman’s chapter, she can’t decline. An unexpected murder ignites her amateur sleuth instincts kick in. Lady Evelyn must balance family drama and the details of planning her own wedding with Hugh, and solve a murder mystery.
The storyline is well paced with reveals that come at just the right time, the authors narration flows effortlessly and smoothly. Making this book a fast read one that I completely inhaled. I was thoroughly entertained and enjoyed how this story unfolded right from the very beginning. And I was totally wrapped up in the lives of Evelyn, along with old and new characters. There two distinct parallel pot lines interwoven that eventually meet. The suspense is a subtle slow build, creating just the right enough tension.
A wonderful read one I truly enjoyed
Have a wonderful day ♡
