Lyn Reviews Charlotte MacLeod’s The Plain Old Man

The Plain Old Man (Kelling & Bittersohn, #6)The Plain Old Man by Charlotte MacLeod
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At first I was overwhelmed by the many characters who were at Sarah’s Aunt Emma’s house to take part in the play. But then I realized it was me not Charlotte MacLeod, I was distracted. I started over and all was well. WHAT A MYSTERY! A huge oil painting of a Kelling ancestress goes missing. For various reasons Aunt Emma doesn’t want the police called in. But when one of the cast is found dead in his bathroom, events take a nasty turn. But Sarah and her fellow Kellings are up to the task! Seeing Sarah in hot pursuit literally of the bad guys was thrilling and a hoot at the same time.

Only Sarah Kelling Bittersohn would do this craziness! I did miss Max who was away on business in Europe. But this was an excellent who dun it. I love it when I don’t figure out the villain till the very end. And it wasn’t till the final pages that I twigged it. I enjoy current mysteries but sometimes I get tired of magical cats, recipes and heroines that get themselves into tight spots with a murderer and get beat up or almost killed. Charlotte MacLeod is different. And I love her (posthumously of course.)
