      Summary: "1926, Kent. Lady Ansley's old Gaiety Theatre group are reuniting at Wychbourne Court for the weekend to perform the Wychbourne Follies, but it's not long before simmering tensions, revived old scores, fears and, worst of all, buried memories take centre stage.

Booklist Reviews 2019 March #2

Professional chef and amateur sleuth Nell Drury returns in her second Jazz Age outing, following Dancing with Death (2017). When Lady Ansley, a former member of the Gaiety Theatre Group, invites an eccentric cast of characters to Wychbourne Court to put on a private show, she gets more than she bargained for when her son makes arrangements for a very public performance. Juggling the enormous egos of a troupe of temperamental performers is difficult enough, but when a dead body is discovered, old rivalries and suspicions are reignited. Does the present-day death have something to do with the mysterious disappearance of actress Mary Ann Darling 30 years prior? It is up to Nell—and her would-be love interest, Detective Inspector Alexander Melbray, of Scotland Yard—to piece together a puzzle that stretches back and forth through time from the Victorian Era to the Roaring Twenties. Myers has discovered a no-fail recipe for suspense as she dishes up another delectable cuisine-centric caper. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

In Myers's buoyantly amusing sequel to 2017's Dancing with Death, Escoffier-trained chef Nell Drury muses: "In this year of 1926, the war had been over for seven years, but how did one calculate ‘over'?" The survivors are still suffering from physical and emotional wounds. Lady Ansley, Nell's employer and a performer at London's Gaiety Theatre in her youth, has invited a group of her fellow artistes to her stately home in Kent, Wychbourne Court, for a reunion. Her son sees an opportunity to contribute to war veterans' charities by organizing a show featuring the assembled guests. Over dinner, expertly planned and prepared by Nell, conversation goes swimmingly until someone asks whatever happened to Mary Ann Darling, a Gaiety actress who disappeared some 30 years ago. That simple query ignites long-buried passions, which result in murder and the unmasking of long-hidden crimes. Nell, assisted by Insp. Alexander Melbray of Scotland Yard, investigates the colorful suspects and overlapping misdeeds. Myers balances the fun with acute observations on the aftereffects of WWI. Historical fans will be pleased. Agent: Sara Keane, Keane Kataria Literary (U.K.). (Mar.)
