Nothing ever happens in August, and tenacious sleuth Kate Shackleton deserves a break. Heading off for a long-overdue holiday to Whitby, she visits her school friend Alma who works as a fortune teller there. Kate had been looking forward to a relaxing seaside sojourn, but upon arrival discovers that Alma's daughter Felicity has disappeared, leaving her mother a note and the pawn ticket for their only asset: a watch-guard. What makes this more intriguing is the jeweller who advanced Felicity the thirty shillings is Jack Philips, Alma's current gentleman friend. A trip to the jeweller's shop reveals a horrifying discovery... And they say nothing happens in August.

This was the first time I have read anything by Frances Brody, and was very pleasantly surprised. The story and characters were well-developed and kept my attention to the very end. I will certainly read more by this author. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries.

Ok story but the writing level to me seemed geared toward teens. Author gave a good sense of details of the setting for those times.

What was supposed to be a peaceful two weeks at the seaside becomes a murder investigation for private investigator Kate Shackleton. She's intelligent, perceptive, observant, and a woman who's ahead of her time. Set in England during the 1920's, this is a murder mystery with historical perspective.
