jf murder mansion

An ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.

The second Kelly Jackson mystery.

At Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss, who is selling the property.  He has asked Kelly to do an inventory.  The B & B is still in operation, and Kelly stumbles on the body of one of it’s guests…she’s been stabbed with a hat pin!

I have really liked both of Janet Finsilver’s Kelly Jackson mysteries.  They are enjoyable, light, well plotted and written, with a good set of main characters.

4 Stars****

Fortunes, fineries, and foul play . . .

It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B&B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!
