Death Around the Bend: A Lady Hardcastle Mystery Book 3 by T E Kinsey

Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, are staying at Lord Riddlethorpe's country estate.  They've come to watch a car race and plan to participate in the race.  After all, they know how to drive.  Now they want to see how feels to have all that power under their feet.  Unfortunately, they lose the toss of the coin and the men go first.  It's a good thing because there is an accident.  Or was it an accident?

Thomas & Mercer and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

It seems one of the brake lines was cut and that was what caused the accident as he powered around the turn.  When he hit the tree, it was deadly for him.  They tell the inspector that they don't believe it was an accident.  He just declares it one and walks away.

Lady Hardcastle and Flo decide to look into it themselves.  There are dozens of servants, lots of guests and lots of secrets in this household.  The more they learn, the more questions they have.  It's not until they find out about an incident that happened when the long-time girlfriends were in school that they get a clue about who might be the killer.

There's a budding romance, one going into full bloom and lots of skullduggery going on around the edges of the household.  

Lady H and Flo manage to get to the truth, but it looks like it might kill them...

This is an interesting and fun read.  I enjoyed it.
