Death at the Crystal Palace by Jennifer Ashley - Series: A Below Stairs Mystery (#5)


Kat is at an exhibition when a lady comes up to her and tells her she's being poisoned.  She's not sure if it's true or not, but she goes home with her.  It's true.  How can she save her?

Berkley and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 6th.

Kat has a boyfriend that spends time under cover helping the police solve crimes.  She talks to him about the investigation she's going to do and he warns her to be safe and take care.  He has his own case and won't be around to help her.

Kat is a cook and a good one.  She takes a lemon cake to the house where people get ill and sees what she can find.  Life is very different from where she lives.  These people have titles and money and sometimes they have disagreements, too.

It takes a lot of work with help from her friends to determine who is trying to kill the Lady.  One of the family members dies because she ate the food that was supposed to be the Lady's.

Kat finally narrows it down but the killer has a knife and she is defenseless.  Will she survive?
