Scandal Above Stairs by Jennifer Ashley

Someone is stealing paintings and Kat's employer asks her to investigate.  She enjoys solving mysteries and says yes.  It's even better when her love interest is involved.

Berkley Books sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published July 3rd.

Despite suspicions, it appears this is a crime above stairs, not below.  And there is more crime tied to it.

The crime is in the background in this story.  You learn a lot about the working of the servants, how many meals are served, the various menus and more since the detective is the cook.

Whoever the thief is, they're vicious.  One man shows up dead.  Both Kat and David are threatened.  Knowing the truth does you no good if you won't live long enough to tell anyone.

It's full of English history and food as well as a mystery.  Look at all you can learn...
