A dying man. The painting within her reach. What’s a thief to do?
Talented London milliner Emily Gates creates amazing hats for Society ladies, but to collect from those who don’t pay her bill, she burglarizes their homes. She needs every penny to send her deaf brother to school. Late one night, she sneaks in to find Lord Kaldaire badly injured in his study. Unwilling to abandon him, she calls for help.
When Kaldaire dies without revealing who attacked him, his widow agrees to keep Emily’s secrets ― if Emily will help find her husband’s killer. A bigger danger is a Scotland Yard inspector who threatens to arrest Emily — unless she spies on her father’s family of swindlers and conmen. Worst of all are the attacks from an unknown assailant. What will Emily face first, jail or death?
This cozy mystery is set in the era of My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins, of early automobiles and aeroplanes, and of King Edward VII and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. If you enjoyed the Victorian Bookshop Mysteries, you’ll like Emily Gates and the collection of aristocrats and thieves in her world as they step into the 20th century.


The Killing at Kaldaire House is the first in the Milliner Mystery Series and we are introduced to twenty four year old Emily Gates who takes pride in making exclusive hats for her exclusive clientele in Edwardian London.

She becomes involved in a murder mystery when she stumbles upon the dying Lord Kaldaire when she's about to steal one of his paintings.  His widow takes a shine to Emily and asks for her help in finding not only his killer but also some precious papers that have gone missing.  Along with this the Detective Inspector also wants her help ..... and she has no choice.

This cosy mystery is a very enjoyable read, I really liked Emily and her love for her little deaf brother shines through, the writing was simple with an easy to follow story line.  I shall look out for the next in this new and quirky series.



About the Author




Kate Parker has wanted to travel to 1930s England since she read her mother’s Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers mysteries when she was a schoolgirl. After many years of studying science, she decided a time travel machine was out of the question so she found herself limited to reading about the period and visiting historic sites. Her love of this fascinating and challenging period led her to the research from which the Deadly series grew. Eventually, she found it necessary to spend several days in the British Library reading old newspapers, which meant another trip to England. Near Christmas. A sacrifice she’d gladly make every year.
