Lyn Reviews Charlotte MacLeod’s The Withdrawing Room

The Withdrawing Room (Kelling & Bittersohn, #2)The Withdrawing Room by Charlotte MacLeod
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The late Charlotte MacLeod has become one of my new favorite authors. I’m so happy her family (i think) has made her wonderful mysteries available. Written around 50 years ago, these books bring back the era of the 70’s. But with a twist. Sarah Kelling, the main character, is one of a long-respected, well-heeled family of Boston–Beacon Hill even.

However, she is not wealthy and is a new widow. So she decides to make her imposing Beacon Hill house into a genteel boarding house. Against her family’s wishes. Anyway just as in MacLeod’s Peter Shandy mysteries, the cast of characters is COLORFUL to say the least!

And her fellow in solving mysteries, Max Bittersohn is the opposite of the social world that Sarah came from and lives in.

It’s a story with so many surp,rises and unexpected twist–my goodness!!! Highly recommended for those who enjoy something a bit different and page-turning.
