Booklist Reviews 2012 January #1

Kate Shackleton, widowed during WWI, has developed a reputation for being able to find people. So much so that a friend met during her wartime service as a nurse with the Voluntary Aid Detachment offers to pay Kate to find her father so that he can be at her wedding a mere five weeks later. And thus begins her new career in this first in a British series. The missing man was a well-off woolen mill owner outside Leeds, who was last seen one Sunday five years earlier, during the war. Questions abound, and seeking the answers in the traditional society of the mill town or at the manor house takes patience and skill. Kate herself is a modern woman, with her own car and house, but her independence and curiosity offend those not ready to meet women in business settings. Brody, who has written historical fiction, presents a carefully researched setting, with accurate references to the popular culture of the day and clear explanations of the dyeing and weaving processes at the mill.

Amateur sleuth Kate Shackleton, whose usual avocation is searching for servicemen who went missing during the Great War, faces a tight deadline in Brody's stately second English historical (after 2010's A Medal for Murder). In 1922, at the behest of Tabitha Braithwaite, an acquaintance of Kate's from the days they were both with the Voluntary Aid Detachment, Kate must find Bridgestead mill owner Joshua Braithwaite, Tabitha's father, who disappeared in 1916, before her wedding in five weeks to Hector Gawthorpe. Rumors abounded in the local wool mills at the time that guilt-ridden Joshua, a suspected womanizer, tried to drown himself after his soldier son was killed on the Somme. A further complication was his objection to Tabitha's marrying the unemployed Hector, who may hold a clue to Joshua's fate. Brody takes her time drawing together the missing threads of this mostly gentle cozy. Agent: Judith Murdoch, Judith Murdoch Literary Agency. (Feb.)
